Villarreal folds under pressure, Ray is old and has a crappy K/BB rate (though his ERA is OK), so why not this other guy? Why not pull Smoltz from the rotation again and save the wear on his arm?
Pulling Smoltz from the rotation would be great for fantasy baseball, potential suicide for the Braves. Give that one up, not going to happen.
And McBride is more than just a lefty specialist, he's been going 2 innings at a time. He's easily my personal favourite for the job since Boyer went down, but he's had control issues since returning from injury so I'm not to sure he's in the right sort of form to take over as yet.
One things for sure, Reitsma's toast. Bobby doesn't pull a player unless he's seriously p***ed.......
