View Full Version : Brenly made a very dumb move last night

He should ofpulled Schilling after 5 innings. It was 9 to 1, and Brenly said that Schilling might have to pitch on three days rest. So what does he do? Lets him go 7 innings, and pitch 102 pitches. One of the dumbest moves I've sen by a manager, but of course they don't top ol Jerry!

It would have been nice to only have Schilling go 5 innings, but then you also need to get 4 innings out of that bullpen! I don't think Brenly has long enough fingernails for that. That pen is not exactly deep or consistant, but they are known for giving up big innings! I don't blame him for keeping Schilling in a few more innings. If he pulls Schilling after 5 & the Yanks somehow come back, the series is over.
