The scripted pitching change that you guys are talking about- this practice should have been criticized when the Brewers managerJust amusing listening/reading the Ex and current MLB player reactions and it's as close 100% -- WTH is going on.
These started within seconds of Cash motioning for the new reliever and not even waiting for the results.
Not a single player even remotely supported the Manager.
Some of the ex-managers are being a bit more diplomatic (esp those that may still be on the radar for getting hired again), but it's pretty obvious NONE of them actually agree with the decision
Some of the tapes of Fox, ESPN, and MLB Network with real time live commentary during the game were unanimous in disagreeing on the spot (vehemently might be an understatement) and then having a wonderful time doing I told you so in the post game analysis.
Arod, Papi, Frank Thomas, Pedro Martinez, Showalter, Al Leiter, Plesac.
I hate Christopher Russo's show, but it might be amusing for about 20 seconds to hear his rant tomorrow.
took Wade Miley out in game 2 of the NLCS a couple of years ago. The manager contributed to blowing that game, and the series with his over-managing. Glad to hear Cash is getting unanimously ripped over this.
