I know what the idea was. I'm saying it was a stupid idea. You don't take the bat out of the hands of a former Silver Slugger winner to set up an RBI opportunity for Mr. Journeyman Backup Catcher.

Honestly, this team is good enough at making outs. They don't need any help from the manager in that department.
