McLaren is a idiot

Postby HOOTIE » Sun Apr 06, 2008 4:34 pm

To pull Felix after 97 pitches, with no Putz, is just moronic. :-t :-t :-t
Felix should go in and say, nice move skipper. :-b
As soon as Felix wasn't coming out, i knew there was a great chance they would yield 2 runs, do deny him the win. They did worse. They yielded 3 runs.

McLaren has no clue how to utilize his bullpen.

Should have just let Lowe start the inning with a clean slate and see what he could do. Yeah I know there were a couple lefties coming up, but Lowe was setting up for Putz, so see what he can do.
(He didn't get an out, so maybe we did see what he could do) :-D

King Felix asked to be taken out, the disruption to his normal throwing routine left him fatigued after giving his team 8 innings.

The only thing you can argue about is whether he should have sent Lowe out there at the beginning of the inning. Considering Lowe was a situational reliever until about 3-4 days ago, it makes sense to go w/ the leftie-leftie matchup until he was really needed. The simple fact was that Lowe was in a situation where he could have closed the game and he blew it.

From a guy who has no allegiance to the Mariners, I don't see how it was "THAT" stupid.

A bunch of lefties coming up, a tired starter and no clear option to close the game.

Look to your bullpen, grab a lefty and hope for the best.

Assuming King Felix had to come out, what else could he have done?

Play in a QS league instead of a W league.

McLaren is the mgr. He knew he had no Putz. Felix was pitching on his normal 4 days rest. He should have told Felix to go start the 9th, and see how it goes. No sp is probably feeling 100% after 97 pitches. If Felix asked to be taken out, that is infortunate. A true horse needs the mindset to go 9. McLaren is still the boss. He could have asked, or told Felix, try to give me more.

I would be asking what the _____ O'Flaherty was doing pitching in the 9th.
He's not good enough to have the game on his back.
1.41 minor league WHIP is pathetic.
