CJ Wilson was decent enough to eek out a win. The Halos bullpen made it much more eek worthy than needed.
Recently it seems that our manager has no idea how to manage a bullpen (I know I am being redundant). Mike's new plan is that every bullpen clown gets to face one batter and then move on. I don't know how this play's into awesome strateegery; but it almost cost the Halos another game.
Great game by Chris Nelson: A solo home run and then a grand slam. Of note; "Denny's" started the "Grand Slam" in honor of Hank Aaron.
Also of note... If you have not heard; MLB is going to broaden their instant replay next season. Of course, the example they are showing on ESPN is today's game where Conger "caught" a strike three foul tip and the batter was called out. Where was this new fangled media back when the Halos were playing the White Sox in the playoffs?
Baseball is weird. I think this is a good step forward, but somehow I think MLB is going to make this whole process more complicated than it needs to be. For example, do you get more challenges in extra innings? Can you still argue calls? If you argue a call can it be reversed minus replay?
Baseball is weird... MLB has to go all in with the owners, the players, and the umpires; it cannot go half ass. All the partners have to pick their poison; replay or no replay, and move on. The cynic in me thinks this whole replay idea is just a gigantic red herring.
Just get the call the right.
