Don’t know how you let him face Alvarez. But also don’t know why no one was warming to start the inning.

People wanted the guy that "could tie the game with one swing", while ignoring that all righties suck vs Graveman
Yet then Cora let those guys hit vs Graveman in a tie game last night. The inconsistency is confusing. Like letting Sale get lit up the third time through the order.

We should be safe in this frame. Everybody knows that the hardest single thing to do in all sports is score runs in baseball after getting the first two batters on. Oops, that only applies for teams west of the Connecticut River.

How many awful decisions does Alex Cora have to make before he starts to get questioned? Everyone in the world knew what the play was there. Sad.

I'm leaning towards Cora not being all that great of an in-game manager now. Too many absolutely baffling decisions last night and today.
