I like that even after getting upset during a game I can wake up and think “Yeah, that happened. Â On to another game”.
I get that they wanted to rest Bard. Â But I hate the idea of not using your closer (when he’s only one of two pitchers available in the bullpen) because you don’t want him in there for a two-inning save in May. Â I also don’t get the action of not using Morales earlier than they did. Â But the game is over and lost and thankfully there isn’t much time to dwell on it.
Of course, if/when Bard gets into tonight’s game, after our being told he got a couple of nights off to rest him, my head just might explode.
