    Why was Dunning pulled after 15 pitches?

    1. I would have started Cease and not used him the day before and followed him up with Dunning if ineffective. 2. I would have saved Crochet for the middle innings or with 2 out in an inning and would not have brought 2 rookies in to start a game 3 clincher. 3. Starting 2 rookies in a high leverage situation not to mention a game 3 clincher is ridiculous planning on the Manager and the Management team. 4. Warming up pitchers in the first inning is most certainly a distraction to the starter even if I'm not in his head, and don't take this personal, but I care more about what Frank Thomas has to say than you. Put some Frank's sauce on that!

    Managerial Candidates List

    This could be the Sox way of clearing the way for Hinch by saying Tony didn't want the job. Let's hope not, and the Sox surprise us with Bruce Bochy who's the man to lead us to multiple championships.

    AJ Hinch: does it matter to you that he cheated?

    Not sure it would all be positive, but it would certainly bring attention to the Sox. Not sure where I stand on this because he cheated...actually he cheated that should be enough that nobody should hire him....but someone will, and eventually win it all.

    Offseason Targets

    Not a fan of management but they did put in a bigger bid for Zach Wheeler this year and a competitive bid overall for the Machado fiasco last year.

    Why was Dunning pulled after 15 pitches?

    If the plan was to go with Dunning and then Crochet, at least stick with Dunning until he gives up a run. By warming up Crochet after a man reached base that totally distracted and ruined any confidence Dunning had, and to a further extent it effected the offense confidence. But let's dig deeper into "this plan". 1. Why would you start a rookie who had only been with the team since the end of August in a deciding game 3. Detwiler would have been a better option if they still had that option, so would Gio, or Dylan Cease anyone except a rookie that came up at the end of August. 2. Why would you follow up and inexperienced rookie with another inexperienced rookie straight out of college in a deciding game 3. 3. Why would you start Cease the day before effectively letting the A's know they should prepare for Dunning. I'll stop there, we all know the other strange decisions that followed Crochet's injury or was that how they drew up the plan the night before. Let's just hope the teams overuse of Crochet the last couple of weeks doesn't end up with TJ surgery. The future is bright, make sure to bring your shades to the next game we are allowed in.

    Maybe Crochet got hurt because they used a starting pitcher out of college as a bullpen mule down the stretch and in a game 3 elimination. They wore his arm out, hopefully it's just strained and not in need of TJ. Washington took the extreme caution route with Strasburg while the Sox treat their #1 pick like a rented mule.

    #1 RR shouldn't have shown his hand by pitching Cease the day before, Dunning was the only choice we had left and the A's knew it #2 Having another rookie warming up after your rookie starting pitcher gave up a hit #3 Going with 2 rookies in a game 3 clinching game. #4 They could have ruined Crochets career by using him the way they did the last week and the last 2 days. Let's hope it's not TJ. That set the tone for the entire game. The manager showed no confidence in his rookie pitcher or his entire team of sluggers by warming up Crochet after a hit.

    2 rookies to start a clinching game 3 is not the best strategy. But let's see...I do like this guy
