    Why was Dunning pulled after 15 pitches?

    As soon as he pulled Dunning in 1st it he couldn't offered to apply that same short leash to our best bullpen arms, especially after Crochet got injured. If it is a bullpen game he should expect our best arms like Bummer to get at least 2 IP and not pull him because a few guys get on. We went through our starter and 3 best bullpen arms before the game was halfway over.

    Crochet's arm fine

    I'm not sure what is worse, he needs Tommy John surgery or he is fine and they took him out for no reason other than his velocity was down. Did he give some type of signal to the dugout that something was wrong or did Ricky and the trainer come out on their own because they were curious about his velocity?

    Not relevant. I was responding to a comment that said fans would go ballistic if Dunning wasn't pulled and gave up a 3 run homer in the 1st.

    Edit- Never mind

    Wrong, no one was expecting Dunning to get pulled in the first if a couple guys got on. If anyone were to go ballistic over the fact that Dunning wasn't pulled after allowing a couple guys on they should have been going ballistic about Dunning getting the start in the first place.

    He he has never got lit up. His last outing was his worst because his lack of control, the game before that wasn't as bad as his numbers looked, 4 IP 4 ER most damage coming from a 3 run homer from Ramirez. The outing before those two was 7 IP 3 H 1 ER against the Twins.

    I am mad at Ricky, I was suspicious of pulling Dunning so quick but once he pulled Bummer I knew he had no idea what he was doing. Once Dunning is pulled you have to expect our best bullpen arms to go at minimum 2IP. A couple guys on should not result in Bummer getting pulled in the 3rd. We have the entire game ahead of us and a limited selection of good arms. He is managing the early innings like we are in the 7th.

    Ricky was managing these early innings like we were already in the 7th.

    Some fans were praising the short leash on everyone forgetting we have entire game to get through and not an unlimited supply of good arms.

    Nonsense. Bummer can't get a few more out but we can rely on Rodon who has barely pitched at all and we have no idea what we will get from him? Ricky has been managing these early innings as if we are towards the end of the game. We have too long to go to keep pulling good arms so quickly.

    We are going to be especially screwed if this game goes beyond the 9th.

    Ricky's short leash on everyone is going to screw us in the long run. He is pulling guys left and right as if we have unlimited amount of good arms in the bullpen. Bummer should have been left in to get more outs.

    I'd rather Grandal at 2 than 3. Even though he has looked good the past 2 games Grandal is not a good enough all around hitter to keep getting the 3 spot. That should always be for one of the best hitters on the team.

    A couple of weeks ago Dane went 7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER against the Twins. People seem to have short term memories and forgot that the majority of his games he has looked really good. if he is looking good he doesn't need to be removed after 1 time through the line up.
  15. Butterfly effect. The entire game happens differently which could have resulted in the A's scoring even more than 5 runs.
