OK, we gotta hope whoever Miami is using as their closer is off today.   Is it Bass?

Nope, it's some guy named Yimi.

Hope Ryan wakes up. Last week started to look like it now scuffling. When he does hit it hard it’s at people.

Freddy has looked like a different player of late. I attribute all of his recent success to the public "constructive criticism" given by @Tony-OH

I really do think my ability to turn a player around by criticizing them is a skill.. lol

Always with the second guessing.   So you would have taken him out with a shutout and 2 outs in the 5th?

Funny, I didn't see you or anyone else post that he should be removed before the 2 out double.

It's not "on Brandon".   It's "on Bruce".   He made a bad pitch.   Just as any pitcher could have to a good hitter like Aguilar.    Including anyone you would bring in from the pen in the 5th inning.

I don’t care about inning so much as pitch count. The  manager knows a pitchers maximum number of effective pitches, and that number is higher or lower based on effectiveness during that game. We don’t know that number, but Hyde does. When he starts the inning where that effective limit is nigh, get a guy up, because even if the pitcher ends the inning clean he will have reached his maximum, and the new guy will start the next inning anyway.

there are always surprises of course but by definition they are unexpected, and shouldn’t drastically alter the basic plan. If the Pitcher has a good five pitch inning, no reason not to let him start the next inning with the same parameters, if he has a 5 pitch inning with three very loud outs, he’s done and the new guy takes the next inning, and so on.

so yes, I would have had a guy up in the 5th
