Steve Phillips thinks they should walk the bases loaded...and now Morgan joins in...
I can't really tell whether you are chastising their logic or not, but when the game is on the line and you are facing one of the best hitters in his generation, you make somebody else beat you. korea played with fire and got burned. they had an open base and a significantly weaker hitter behind him.
Obviously that doesn't guarantee you get the next guy, but you are playing the odds.
