Yeah. Isn't that one of the unwritten rules? Not to be the go ahead run on base.Even if you have the split advantage unnecessarily putting the go ahead on is stupid. Sure McCann can burn you with a base hit, but unless he hits a homer you can still get out of it without giving up the lead.
I'm reading an article by Jason Stark on the Athletic about the Rays shocking the world by beating the Astros. This snippit is from it:Still pulling for a Rays vs Nationals World Series.
I thought it was a good move since they still have Cole on full rest, but what do I know. Also remember that Beckett pitched game 6- technically not a must win for the Marlins- on 3 days rest.What does everyone think of the decision to start Verlander on short rest in a game that wasn't a must win?
Yeah I hate bandwagon fans. Same thing happened with the Marlins in 1997 and 2003. What sucks is that some loyal fans who went during the year may have been unable to get tickets to the playoff game because a fake fan went.Tropicana Field suddenly selling out feels really uncomfortable to me.
The vast majority of those fans don't deserve to see that team pull it off.
