What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Lee has gone 8 innings and has thrown 115 pitches. Who do you want on the mound?
Is Harden available?
Wilson if it's a lefty up and Ogando if it's a righty. Could consider Feliz for last out if necessary. Think it's more likely to use Wilson in eighth inning if Lee is running low on gas. Don't think Wash has the guts to throw his best wherever he NEEDS it....this would include PH, PR and defensive replacements. I don't care if someone's ego is bruised, they'll get over it if they get to keep playing.
But then i ask, who's batting for TB? If Longoria is leading off, and I need to get that one tough Righty out. I'm going with O'Day. Then bringing in CJ to get Pena and Joyce. And I let both pitchers know ahead of time instead of surprising them.
Cliff Lee if there's a lefty up, otherwise its got to be Feliz
Feliz, although I'd like to know if this is the top of the lineup coming up or what.
Let's say it's Crawford (L), Longoria (R), Zobrist (S).
Lee until his arm flies off unless, of course, Wash checks past records and finds Lee has never pitched more than 115 pitches and never pitched the bottom of the 9th. Then, we would all assume that it can't be done and we forfeit the game.
Mo Rivera....oh you mean, of the players actually AVAILABLE to the Rangers Tuesday night? Well then I would put Feliz out there if it is a RH batter or Wilson if it was a lefty.
In a move that stuns the baseball world ... Nolan Ryan!!
In reality ... if it's Crawford, Longoria and ... CJ faces Crawford, then Feliz faces Longoria and whoever ... Zobrist won't be batting behind Longo ...
OK RANGERS ... time to gore Sonnanstine and the Rays ... no mercy tonight !!!
