Last night's game was like deja vu.

Maholm throws well, receives little offensive support, has one bad inning and loses.

Sound familiar?

Key difference? He wasn't wearing black-and-gold last night.



Like a nightmare

You have a pitcher who is struggling terribly starting tonight.

So let's play the veteran catcher that you brought in for his defense and game calling out at third.

Not only can you take away any benefit he provides behind the plate, but you can also weaken your infield defense.

I really hate our manager.


You also had to look ahead to today's game. McHenry was going to start one of the games. Both McD and Sanchez struggling. So ... Certainly a reasonable option to start McHenry against a lefty and give Alvarez a break against Maholm. I don't think that the decision was either ransom or without a fair amount of logic.
