Wtf, Joe?

I don’t know if the move was as bad as Torre bringing in Weaver during during the 2003 World Series, but bringing in Alfredo for D-Rob is pretty close.

D-Rob is good. Like really good. He led the league in K/9 and it was no fluke. In the 11th, he got two outs with ease. Notorious Yankee killer Howie Kendrick was coming up. Joe said he took D-Rob out because Kendrick hits the fastball.

What?

D-Rob k’s bitches with his curveball. Have him throw curveballs to Kendrick then. If he walks him, he walks him. The next batter is Jeff Mathis. He sucks. I know he ended up doubling, but there is no doubt in anybody’s mind that Mathis does not get a hit off a D-Rob who is on fire.

Just a horrible, horrible move that highlights a bunch of shitty moves from Joe over games 2 and 3.
