Why did torborg remove the 10 time allstar from opening day n the 7th innning! He was doing good and it was just the 1st game. Thats just an idiotic move. Torborg left Pudge and everyone else Shocked....Here is an article on him being removed from the game.

it was an understandable move. they needed the pitcher to throw 2 innings so they don't wear out the bullpenn so quick, so they had to do a double switch. they couldn't have tried taking someone else out of the game, because they also needed defense right there, and the only guys they could have taken out in that situation were castillo and pierre, you don't want to take out your center fielder when you don't have another good center fielder to back him up and you don't want to take out your second baseman when you know fox's defense is not all that great and redmond is a great back up, so if you look at it carefully it made sense.

They needed defense? They were 4 runs down at the time.
They needed OFFENSE. Should've found another solution I think.

Pudge was probably removed because Torborg saw the game as a lost cause.



Who really GAF.

No one has ever accused Torborg of being great with his substitutions or managing his roster.

For whatever reason (to save him a bit, double switch, game out of reach, poor judgement, whatever) I-Rod took a seat.

Forget about it! That was game 1, so now lets start concentrating on game 2.

later....

Torborg removed him because he got hit to much by foul balls but pudge wanted to stay in. It wasnt nothing, he said he ok. We needed him in those last 2 innings....
