Russell's April Game Management


Was it just me or was anyone else incredibly surprised to see Evan Meek warming up in the third inning after No Relation looked to be completely imploding like he did in Arizona?  However I almost have to like the way Russell was gonna have no part of a huge disaster inning like the Pirates have managed to have in a few of their losses.  It was like Russell was saying we have an early lead and I'm not about to let this on get away from us.  He knows the bullpen is one of the strengths of the team so far in this young season and he hasn't seemed afraid to use it.  I've liked some of the moves Russell has made this year so far, after the last few years where he has seemed to have no feel for when to pull a pitcher.  Thoughts?
