It's hard to argue with Cora's record on pinch-hitting this year, but pulling your best defensive outfielder in a one-run game for Sam Travis seems strange.

I always wonder why teams don't do more of this. Especially when you have a hitter like Mookie who is really not much of a risk to hit it to first base.

He gets to warm up again too?
Was thinking standing over at 1st after pitching to a batter was the one potential drawback, but not of this is the case...

Cora looked like he was saying that he understands they have the right to switch but that he was supposed to get some kind of notice to allow for pinch hitter or something. Whatever he was saying they seemed to think he had a point.
