    In-game managerial decision thread

    This is nothing new.  It's been tried before, and the ADG's, andrewmitch's, and other griping post-game managers never respond to the challenge.  

    The challenge: 

    POST YOUR MANAGERIAL SUGGESTIONS AND INSIGHTS BEFORE THE RESULTS!

    If you really have any credibility, we'll all see that maybe you should be considered as MLB managerial material or at least a professional game analyst.   

    We'll all be witnesses here to see if you anticipate results better than Manager John Farrell.  

    C'mon! Do it!  It's your opportunity to strut your stuff and shine.

     Ha.  Nice Sherriff.  My own admitted results last night:  1 win, 1 loss   I have texts to my dad to vouch for me:  

    win:  pitching to Longo:  "Why are they pitching to Longo?!?!?!"  

    loss:  Bringing in Uehara in non-save situation 9th:  (Draft, as I was just in the midst of typing) "Oooh, I like this.  Not by the book, but lets hold and get our big bats up in the ..." (Walk off dinger)

    I knew running for Papi was a mistake, at the time of the decesion there was still a very good chance he could come back up in the line up. Had we left him in the game, his bat would have been there in the 9th inning...not the smartest move, however I see why it was made. Unfortunately, it reminded me of a Francona move....

    Pitching to Longo was just stupid even though he struck out before, just walk the guy why even bother with him? Although at the time, I didn't say this because I thought Buch could limit any damage possible, unfortunately that HR really did cost us.

    We can't read your thoughts, freediro.  If you post here, it'll be for all to see.  

    Let's see what you've got tonight.

    BTW, I can't watch the game live due to a work commitment, so I can't in-game manage tonight. I'll be looking for those that put themselves out there and show guts.

    while there could be a debate there

    I was more surprised with farrel saying he never considered it

    Lots of other drivel is posted there, Pumpsie.  I just want to highlight those who tend to be most critical of in-game decisions and provide a forum for them to showboat their stuff.  

    At least you're on record for posting doom and gloom throughout this season before events unfolded.  I'll give you some credit for that.

    But it may be prime opportunity for sabotage, zac.  Think about it.  

    Some of you pinstripers are great at it.

    Morales shouldn't be on the post season roster. His control is lousy and what good is a leftie specialist who can't get lefties out?

    My managerial suggestion would be for Farrell to wear goggles when the celebration starts tonight.

    Sorry Zac, but 1st guessing shows that you have some cred.

    I see that nobody took me up on it.

    Re: In-game managerial decision thread

    I don't need 20-20 hindsight, since I don't expect to be right all the time-

    1-Pitching to Longoria was a no-brainer.  R/R v R/L, Longoria is the tying run, Myers OPS is about the same as Longoria, and Longoria doesn't hit Buchholz.

    2-I'd have pitchrun for Papi.  Top of the 8th.  If you score there, you bring in Uehara, and you're a huge favorite.  Berry stole 2nd, we just didn't get him in.

    3-I didn't like the bunt.  Rodney had no idea where the plate was.  And even worse was bunting 1-0.  Make the guy throw you a strike.

    4-With Drew 0-5 against McGee, I'd flip a coin.

    For 1 & 2, I think Farrell was solidly right, the other two were mostly coinflips.

    the reasoning is simple...by walking Longoria who represented the tying run, you then bring the go ahead run to the plate. worse case which is what happened, Longoria goes yard and the game is tied. Thus walking him and loading the bases opens up the possibility of a grand slam, but it also places a premium on throwing strikes. With the knowledge of hindsight the move is clear...you walk him.

    Sheriff,

    What fun is that...my fan contract states cleary that I have the god given birth right to boo the umpire and second guess the managers in game decisions with the luxury of hindsight. To suggest that I or we the fans have to actually have some level of fundemental baseball knowledge and make our in game stratigic decisions in real time, then put our names on it is not fair.Embarassed
