So add more pressure on a shaky bullpen arm by allowing the bases to be loaded instead of making the move with 2nd and 3rd. Robles wasn't suddenly going to find it.

I mean walking a .233 OBP hitter should result in being placed inside and immediately fired from a cannon.

Cora should not be making bullpen decisions in any way other than being the guy who goes out there to grab the ball when someone else tells him to. He has absolutely no idea what he is doing.

Does Robles bring Cora a delicious petitfor every morning or what? Dude has six blown saves in eight opportunities.

Fucking Robles.

How could Bloom so consistently build ridiculously good bullpens in Tampa seemingly out of no-names, hopes and dreams, and his bullpens in Boston are simply hopeless?

I think it's coded into most lefty relievers to hand out a few walks each time.

Feels like Cora’s pen usage is him making the case to get Whitlock back out there rather than starting. Either way I think it is basically essential.
