    apologies to the skipper

    My apologies to John Farrell.  Apparently he knows better than me.  After Nava gets on base with Gomes in the on deck circle, I'm going ballastic when I don't see Carp the left handed hitter come out of the dugout to pinch hit for Gomes with no outs to insure moving the runner to 2B in scoring position with one out.

    Perhaps the skipper had an early dinner engagement and wanted to end it quickly. Laughing

    Either way, he was right,  and quite obviously, I was wrong.

    GO SOX.

    Gomes was 4/8 off Peralta with 2 HR coming in to that AB. Any other RHP and it probably was Carp. I was thinking the same until Gomes line VS Peralta up on the screen. Turned out ok.

    He was mad at you for criticizing his decision to start Gomes.  So he put Bailey in so he could let TB tie it, so Gomes could win it in the 9th.

    Or, it is entirely possible that Carp just couldn't play.  Even if it isn't serious, you can't take a chance on a grounder, and having Carp running fullout trying to beat the throw.

    Would you pull a batter with that much success against the opposing pitcher? Farrell did pull Doubront about 10 minutes earlier though.

    Read nick Cafardo.   Carp could hit, but peralta equally effective against righties and lefties, so stay with gomes.  Farrell equally sure in sending Bailey out for the 9th.  I wasn't.

    Do you think he knows more then you? Why do arm chair viewers always think they know more then managers ,coaches, players. No need to apologize, they could care less what we think.

    You're right, I just caught Cafardo's insightful article on the skipper's thought process.  "Jonny Gomes batted in the ninth in a situation normally reserved for Mike Carp, who sat out both ends to rest cramps in his hamstring. Carp was available to hit, but Joel Peralta has held lefthanders to .175 average coming in and .176 to righties. So Farrell figured, what's the difference? Gomes batted and won the game."

    Gee, I so wish I could be in the dugout during the strategy sessions when key situations arise.  But I guess the brass knew what they were doing when they picked Farrell to manage the team instead of me. Laughing

    I agree as he only had done 94 pitches(I think) and gave up 3 hits and no walks. It was Bailey who gave up the 1 walk, fortunately, after the tying HR.  I'm an old timer and I remember years ago when it was a real plumb for a pitcher to complete the game and some went to 120 pitches. As favorable as ERAs, I remember they'd be judged on WOW...3-4 complete games etc. At least let him start the 9th & then if he gives up a hit or walk & looks fatigued, replace him. And Bailey is no Paplebon or Mariano Rivera .
