I have been saying that Harvey was just having a dead cat bounce, but if he continues to pitch like this, I see no reason not to bring him back next year

What do you know about dead cats bouncing you weirdo?

I've always felt that one issue with having a "bullpen" game and planning on using 4 or 5 relievers is that every so often, even a good pitcher just "doesn't have it" and gets lit up.    And the more pitchers you use, the more you increase your chances of running into one of those nights and giving up a big inning.

Now let's make sure we have that big inning here.

1 run is not a big inning, unfortunately.

That’s stupid even though it’s successful.

tell the league’s leading hitter to sacrifice bunt??

Palmer says he was bunting for a base hit but bunted it to hard.   Wasn't trying to sacrifice.

Not a fan of Mullins bunting with runner on 2nd and 3rd and one out. He needs to try and drive them in. We ended up scoring just that one run after Hays and Mancini failed. 

This is part of the reason why this team stinks. Just dumb baseball even from there good players.

Yeah I get that, but he should have been swinging for a hit.
