The Stupidest Manager In The Division: Indians 6, Mariners 5
Think about this. White has either allowed inherited runners to score or has given up earned runs of his own in six straight games, including his last three appearances with the Astros, and McLaren continues to use him. U.S.S. Mariner:
John McLaren simply doesn’t understand how to manage a roster. In game strategy isn’t everything, but it’s part of the job, and he fails at it.Thank you, John McLaren, for the Angels' 5.5-game lead in the AL West.
The main obstacle in such usage is the save rule, which in my opinion was stupid to begin with.
See, this is the kind of thing Seitz is on about. Sure, McLaren made a stupid move last night, but the major reason the Angels have a 5.5 game lead is that they've just been better than the Mariners, especially when it counted most. Give credit where it's due, man.
You misinterpreted the sentence, sean.
