    You realize the nice thing about only letting Romano throw 10 pitches is that he'll be available for the next game right? Could you imagine not even having him available if he goes out for a second inning?

    Will he though? Why wasn't Cole used instead of Yammaguchi today then

    There's no way Gibby a former catcher leaves Giles in that long. His velocity was way off and he wasn't even close to the strike zone with his fastball.

    Itís a weird season. Now Verlander is injured.
    Pitchers simply donít ramp up in 2.5 weeks after sitting for 3 months, thatís not how it works.

    Not just him though... Hatch and Kay could both have gone longer, he artificially created a need to use 3 pitchers to bridge to Giles. He also used his 4 "highest leverage" pitchers in 2 out of 3 games. With a 4 run lead he didn't need Romano/Bass/Dolis as the guys right there.

    I was okay with the Hatch to Kay move at the time, but I fully expected Kay to go 5+ innings when that move was made.

    Iíd rather have secured the win today. These games against Tampa (and NY) are much more important

    Yep 100% agree, there was no need to take Kay out to get those arms.

    No shit a closer is going to say he's fine. Jesus fuck man, you're a major league manager, you should know the symptoms when a pitcher is hurting.

    Yeah, I guess the low velocity, lack of command, and obvious signs of discomfort weren't enough to make that call. This is a staggering level of incompetence exhibited by Montoyo here.

    It looks like he started to grimace during the Margot at bat, re-watching the inning. It was all downhill from there.
