Yeah, it's nice to debate the wisdom of sending a runner with 2-3-4 coming up, but I think the jump the runner gets is more important. If he got a good one, let him go. If not, that's why the coach is there, to stop him.

Points of interest:
Beltran refused to call Harrison's hit dirty but . . . he certainly suggests that Harrison should have slid.
One Cardinal hero who apparently didn't want his name used commented that Harrison would have been safe if he slid and that the collision was "not the play."

Gentlemen . . . watch the replay. If he slides, he's out. No path to the plate. None.

Also, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter asserts that Hurdle was upset because Westbrook wasn't warned after Harrison was hit by the pitch. Talk about not having a clue . . .

Molina's teammates were talking with their hearts, not their heads. When the catcher is straddling the foul line, the runner has no choice. If he slides, he's got a great chance of breaking a leg, but none at scoring.
