Riverbrian Old-Timey Member Posted Tuesday at 01:06 AM Share Posted Tuesday at 01:06 AM The Twins are currently down 4-0. The top of the 4th is just getting started. The Giants used on opener in the 1st inning with right handed John Brebbia. Left handed Sean Manaea entered the game in the 2nd inning. After a 1-2-3 first inning. Rocco reacted to this by pinch hitting Solano for Julien before he even swung a bat in the cleanup spot and then later in the 3rd inning. Kyle Garlick pinch hit for Alex Kirilloff. Here's a note for opposing managers. Start an opposite hand opener and Rocco will over react early. I understand why he did it. He shouldn't have done it. Yeah Manaea splits are worse against Right Handed Hitters but let's face it... Manaea has an ERA of 7.81 this season... so how many innings did you think Manaea would throw? Did you just fall for Gabe Kapler saying "Hey Look Your Shoes Untied" because I'll bet a Right Hander is in the game before the 6th and you've... well... whatever. I hope he wasn't expecting Junis in the 2nd because he just threw yesterday. Where did he think Kapler was going after the opener? Rocco has just wrapped up the Over Managing Manager of the Year Award. Nobody else will top it. He can start writing his acceptance speech immediately after the game. I've been on his side... He may have lost me tonight. Brazilian Twins Fan, UpstateNewYorker, lukeduke1980 and 28 others 31 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
