Jason Hammel v Pedro Martinez starting pitchers... Hammel has been very inconsistent this year. Could be trouble. Martinez hasn't pitched for ~a month - strained neck.... he could be rusty. May be a day for the pens to come in early - both teams. I think we have the advantage there...

After Manuel treated yesterday's game like Game 7 of the World Series, yeah.

this just in - TBS is talking to MLB about postponing The Sat game with resched to Monday. Weather is forecasted to be 15 deg wind chill, high 20's actual

I think TBS is worried about BB viewers v college FB

True, but why shoot your wad in a 4-0 game in a best-of-5 when you are up 1-0?

Because now the Phillies are sorta screwed if tomorrow's not postponed. Horrible managing.

don't agree, 2-0 would have been dominate, didn't work out. Rocks lost a starter to a groin pull, iffy starting pitching and iffy early pen - set-up and closer are solid. Not horrible, just playing the game

Are we even talking about the same thing? It's damn hard to excuse Manuel for using two starting pitchers in short relief yesterday.

understood - all I'm saying is the Manuel took a chance to go 2-0. Drivers seat. Didn't work out. Best next play is to call TBS & MLB and beg for resched

and_one -

I could see the case made for that "strategy" due to the Phils bullpen woes and a win giving a guarantee that they would come back to Philadelphia for the deciding game.

But IMO, the ONLY way to justify that "strategy" (for lack of a better term IMO - lol) it would have to be a 1-run deficit at the worst but moreso a tie game or a small lead.

Not when you are already down 4-0 after 5 innings and at best you have a 33% chance of winning the game.

He shot his wad on a game that he was likely to lose anyway and may very well cost the Phils a chance to advance.

If they were DOWN 0-1 in the series as opposed to being UP 1-0 then that's another case all-together.

I agree with both of you, it was a bizarre move. You both know the team better that I, perhaps it was driven by the fact that he has little faith in his bullpen?
