Why not use Belliard there?

Yeah, Manny was a retard there. He put Willie in because he's the better bunter. Then he takes away the bunt sign. Ridiculous managing there.

Why wouldn't you use anyone but Harris to hit?  Why not let Harris run for Pena?

These are rehab starts.  It's a small sample size.  Please tell me you aren't drawing any conclusions based off of that.
I'm drawing conclusions based on the fact that Dukes says he's completely healthy yet he got his first hit in three games tonight in the 9th inning. I'm also basing it on the fact that he had a sub-par ST and an opening day game in which he left 10 men on base.

No idea. That would have made a ton of sense.  Using Harris to run and Belly to PH.

Maybe Willie Harris should have taken a few more pitches...

It was his second hit (his second of the night).  Dukes could've been blowing smoke when he said that.

That's why they have rehab starts - they're going to have some initial rust.  I don't think it speaks to Dukes's hitting that he got off to a slow start.

Felipe's playing well since he got his job back.  Hat's off to Lopez!

I really don't like alot of Manny's decisions. Right now we need to get the lead, once we have the lead we can worry about getting the big inning. But there have been too many times where I think a bunt would have ended up with a run, but Manny decides against it.

What a reversal of fortunes.  Remember how we were feeling when the Braves had 2nd and 3rd with 1 out, last inning?

The way you put that actually looks pretty cool.

A gap double would be GREAT!

I hope he just gets a walk or a base hit.
