I think it's pretty clear he's tired. I'd both be nervous and excited with a late-game mix-and-match that had Ottovino facing Acuna and Taylor going after Freeman.I'm giving Barnes the day off leading into the first day without a game in two and a half weeks. Breaking ball has been hanging up, and there have been very few of those devastating 12-6 divers that bounce at the plate for swings and misses. Have to keep this guy fresh, and getting consecutive days of rest seems like a good idea here, especially as the bullpen on the whole has started coming together.
There was a old fan from NantucketA batter without a hit
Gave his mother fits. Why do it?
Arroyo's kept the faith
So bat Kiké eighth
Dirty old water, can you keep rolling, flowing into the night?
