    Some hard (or maybe not so hard) choices need to be made in the off season.  I'll preach it again, but the way they are structured today is not fundamental on offensive side of the ball.  It's homer or bust.  Come playoff time it is bust.  The "Bomba" mantra has too many guys looking to hit a 3 run homer when no one is on base.  Can't happen in playoff baseball.  Mgr moves were head scratchers, so is that youth at the helm or relying way too much on analytical data.  
     
    Eduardo Perez play by play talked about how Dusty Baker (can't stand Baker, wearing wrist bands and OJ Simpson gloves as a manager fashion statement) talked during todays game about Dusty managing game one more on gut that the numbers.  Sometimes your gut tells you the better moves. The shift in certain scenarios led to runs being scored, when runs are a premium in playoffs.  Kudos to weak seeing eye singles, but they should have been outs and no damage.  
     
    Walking to dugout on ground balls (Rosario) and not getting benched, mind boggling. Severe lack of plate discipline by most hitters, not all is fundamental.  Bunt a guy over, force the other team to play defense, doesn't happen.  
     
    Times a changing, turn the calendar over and now time to hit the links and head home.  Crappy way to end the season

    Either Wade or Gonzales would be a vast improvement on defense and more dependable at the bat. We've got plenty of guys that can hit the bombas, keeping one in the lineup simply hoping he can catch a mistake 1 out of 30 times is not good management. Especially when the other 29 times result in at least 20 strikeouts.

    It's too late now to have anything resembling a "real" season. A legitimate World Series title cannot be claimed this year and while the exhibition scenario may provide some entertainment- it ain't Major League Baseball. Coupling that with the potential risk to players and coaches leaves only one sensible choice- cancel the season! It'll be tough on those who depend on income from MLB, but plenty of other industries are suffering the same plight.
