For god sakes, why didn't Mike switch HK for Vlad in the 10th?



Its bad enough Scioscia didn't pull him earlier, but for God's sake, when Vladdy got that lucky hit off of Rivera in the 10th, why didn't he have HK take his place and do a hit and run, bunt or steal a base?????????????????????

I really felt that Mike squandered a run-scoring opportunity there.

If you want to beat the Yankees, you have to take a deep breath, slow the game down, and execute strategic baseball circa 2002 Anaheim Angels.

Bench Vlad, put in Kendrick or Napoli as DH.

Eff the loyalty bs, Mike. Focus on the team.

If the Angels lose this series, then Game 2 will forever be remembered as the Halo Waterloo.
