geoduck no quahog said:It would be a worthy SOSH debate to talk about what to do if
Lester's spot comes up with the score tied 1-1, the bases jacked with Xander, Drew and Ross - one out
Lester's spot with Xander on 3rd, either one or two outs
I'd guess that you'd need to ph with the go ahead run on 3rd and less than 2 outs.
Otherwise, leave him in the game.
In Farrell's postgame comments, he said that he would not have PH for Lester even if there had been runners on 2nd and 3rd in a tie game.
Harold Reynolds was apoplectic on the MLB Network when he heard this, saying that was disrespecting the Cardinal offense. It was not clear if it was as bad as, or worse, than Victorino's attempting a 9-3 putout in game 1 when up by 7 runs!1!!1!!! !
Harold Reynolds must have some issues he needs to work through about being disrespected, having played on so many under .500 Seattle teams during his career.
