Jolly Good Fellow
I have zero problem with what Snit did last night, he probably should have used Jacob Webb instead but hindsight is 20/20
Eh, I'm not concerned, but this was another reason I wanted Melancon or Smith to come in immediately last night. Stop them there and don't let them get any momentum or feel good about the next game.
I know about all that, but keep the Dodgers down while you can.
We have to win the starts by Fried and Anderson - They did
and you have to win the game where you are up 7-0 at all costs. - They did
Also, Melancon, Smith, and Martin can all pitch three days in a row
so use who you have to and make sure you win that game. - They did
That inning woke the Dodgers up, unfortunately. Bring Melancon in to start that inning and beat them 8-3 to crush their spirit. We're still up 2-1 though which is the only thing that matters.The only real issue was Tomlin instead of Smith/Melancon? Martin pitched the 8th with a 4 run lead. The when Ozzie hit his HR, he decided to rest Melancon with a 5 run lead. Tomlin was 1 out away from us not even having this conversation.
Feel free to ignore me. This is just my way of pretending last night didn't happen.
Nah. Braves' shallow starting rotation woke them up.That inning woke the Dodgers up, unfortunately. Bring Melancon in to start that inning and beat them 8-3 to crush their spirit. We're still up 2-1 though which is the only thing that matters.
