    I don't really get why Acta pinch ran Marson for Kotchman. I mean, it worked out, but is Marson really that much faster than Kotchman? Just seemed kind of unnecessary.

    Would it have mattered? It's your default response to everything that happens.

    If Pestano is your set-up man, why take him out just because he gave up one fucking hit? It's this sort of BS thinking that got us into this mess. I said it before and I will continue to say it until Acta gets fired at the end of another disappointing season, he got fired from the Nationals for a reason. HE SUCKS.

    Anyone want to answer me about the Marson pinch running situation? I'm legitimately curious, is Marson just faster than I give him credit for? Is Kotchman slower than I thought? You don't often see a catcher being subbed in for speed. It's not like it was Hafner out there.

    Yeah, lack of talent.

    If Pestano blows the game you'd be the first one to jump out of your Iron Man pajamas, race to your laptop and post about how everyone could see Pestano didn't have it.

    Which he didnt, for the second straight game. The way Hagadone has pitched, I'm not sure how bringing him in is at all the wrong move.

    Pestano was struggling a bit in a tight game. I don't mind going to Hagadone since he has been making guys look silly all season.

    Pestano didn't blow the game. If he did, I would be pissed at Acta not for bringing in Prestano, but for taking Gomez out. See how this goes? Keep up.

    I mean, Kotchman is a bit of a base clogger as opposed to Marson who is at least moderately athletic.

    There is a difference, but I'm not sure I make that move either.

    Worked out though I guess.

    If he was really worried about it, he could have put Damon in to run then throw Marson out there when it was time to play D. I guess that would deplete the bench though.

    Because he has to manage for more than one game? He can't be running Pestano out there for high pitch counts and still be able to use him back to back. Pestano had thrown as many balls as strikes before surrendering that hit, too, it wasn't like he pulled a sharp pitcher.

    The irony here is that I was at work for the entirity of this game, happened to catch the hour on Gameday right after it happened, and my first thought was 'someone somehwere is throwing a hissy fit that the guy with 0.96 era and 96 mph fastball was brought in there, even though it is the perfect time to give Hagadone a shot.'. I guess that somewhere was here.
