Wednesday night at Safeco Field, two teams playing out the string moved one day closer to the offseason. Derek summarizes the evening.
Despite not showing up for their scheduled start on Monday against the Yankees, the Devil Rays won’t have to forfeit the game. Derek Zumsteg disagrees with that decision.
It’s one thing if a manager believes that intentionally walking Bonds is the best strategy to winning a game. And the game is close. I think the intentional walk is a bad strategy anyway, but I can respect that we have different opinions (me and the manager). But if a team is out of contention, or it’s a blowout, they should pitch to Bonds. If baseball is a sport, and it is, it’s only sporting to let him hit if the outcome of the game isn’t in question.
