Sorry to single you out (plenty have joined this particular chorus) ... but the "Cora isn't trying to win" narrative is the dumbest narrative to come out of this season.Maybe Cora will actually make an effort to win this one?
And somehow you think this translates into Cora not trying to win? I don't think that leap in logic is acceptable.Seriously, E5? Have you looked at Cora's pitching usage lately? He's been pretty clear about treating this as a spring training-like situation where everyone gets a chance for a few innings. Otherwise there's literally no reason for guys like Trevor Kelley and Mike Shawaryn to be on the active roster. That's the whole point of an expanded 40-man roster in September -- to give teams out of contention a chance to use some players who would never see the big leagues otherwise.
