youre the manager of the Bucs and your pitcher comes to the plate with the bases loaded and less than 2 outs. Do you:
A- let the pitcher swing away
B- not swing at all
I ask this question because the scenario has popped up in the last couple of games. Both McDonald and Morton have batted with the bases loaded and less than two outs.
IMO, i would make our pitcher keep the bat on his shoulder and either get a walk, or get a strikeout. this theory wouldnt hold water if Lincoln were at bat, but I think you get the gist.
should the team cross their fingers and hope the pitcher batting .047 gets a bloop hit or do we avoid the double play and get the leadoff hitter into the box?
