Didn't see the game, what were they?

I know the other day when he batted Conforto and Gonzo as pinch hitters against a lefty was a bit questionable, but it worked out so no one cared.

3rd and 2nd 2 out....nido up (noah on deck)

He pinch hits for nido with Jay Bruce....clearly the brewers were going to walk him. So they did. They Noah came up and got out.

I think you have two options there....if you are going to let noah stay in let nido hit because they probably pitch to him. If you are going to pinch hit for nido and they walk that pinch hitter you have to be comfortable pinch hitting for Noah.

Ron and Gary were both shocked he basically wasted bruce because they intentially walked him and let noah hit with bases loaded and he got out.

Noah was already at 90+ pitches too so he didn't have long in the game.

Yeah that's questionable for sure, but hey we walked out with the win so all's forgiven for now.

Wilmer Flores makes up for the missed catch by hitting a walk-off HR. Effortless swing. :D

hes been great...it was a stupid move (that even might I add Gary and Ron were perplexed by also).

he's allowed to make a bad move every now and then it happens. But he should at least learn from it.

Wasting bruce for no reason to then just let the pitcher hit is pretty stupid.

He's been great so far though. It's not really questioning the mickey its just wondering why he did it...his explanation was weak in the post game too.

Ive been super impressed with him though. Just stating facts.

I think it was man on 2nd and two outs when Calloway PH Bruce for Nido, but I could be wrong. Anyhow, we still had Gonzo Cabrera and I think another lefty on the bench so it really wasn't a problem from what I could see.

Rumor is that Harvey could be the odd man out when Vargas returns from the DL.

No way. Harvey will be a free agent after this season and is represented by Boras. Miami will want young players who are under control for a long time. Dominic Smith and maybe that young pitcher, Peterson. But we'd have to add more than that.
