Does anyone else feel like Ron Washington is just managing his team out of this world series?

Last night he keeps going to worse and worse relievers even though the ones he had could go longer. He brings in Ogando with men on knowing Ogando hasn't had the best control. He puts moreland in for defensive purposes, but leaves in Cruz with Endy Chavez on the bench.

Tonight he chooses Harrison over Derek Holland who had a 2 hitter earlier in the series through 8 1/3. He has another chance to go to Holland and goes to Feldman. Has a chance to go to C.J. Wilson vs. a lefty and doesn't. Instead brings him in for a righty after having him up warming twice. He hits the batter, walks in a run.

I know he can't make his relievers throw the ball competently, but he doesn't seem to be putting them into a place to succeed.

He's been poor.

Horrible inning by Texas there.

You hit 2 batters, walk 2 more and give up 2 huge insurance runs.

The ump blew a call though and that was huge.

IMO anything close you have to make the batter swing, it was a strike, terrible. Texas bullpen is killing them right now. If Koji would have worked out things could have been very different.
