    • andeux andeux Oct 1,2020 12:43 pm || Up

      I disagree.
      Don’t let it get out of hand, of course, but if Fiers can go 5 innings, 3 runs, or something like that I’ll be happy.
      There are just way too many things that can go wrong trying to do a full bullpen game, especially with Hendriks struggling and barely available.

      • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Oct 1,2020 12:48 pm || Up

        It’s just so hard to know exactly when to make the move. If Fiers stops commanding the fastball, as it has looked intermittently today, he can get hurt bad fast. But he can also settle down and limit damage. Very tricky decision to make.

      • lenscrafters Oct 1,2020 12:51 pm || Up

        I think he’s an iffy choice to begin with to start the game, and he hasn’t shown much if anything on the batted balls that became outs. The pitchers in the bullpen are simply better and we need all hands on deck.

        • sslinger Oct 1,2020 12:53 pm || Up

          I’d say this is the right time. As much as I wanted Fiers as the starter he just is looking like bad Fiers today and we can’t afford to get too far behind.

        A big part of my concern with a bullpen game was that if you use enough pitchers, there’s too good a chance one of them will be wild or just not have it that day. That seems to have bit Chicago in a big way, first with Rondon, then bringing in the new pitcher with the bases loaded.
        I’m still worried about it on our side as well, but I’m glad we’re the team on our 3rd pitcher in the 5th inning, not our 6th.

        After yesterday’s gaffe, Bob made pretty much* all the right moves today, while Renteria showed how easy it is to stupidly over-manage.

        *Trivino was puzzling, but we don’t really know how much any of the relievers have in the tank on a given day, so I’m giving him a pass on that one

          Maybe he was hoping for a miricle inning and therefore saving soria for the 9th if it were tied.

            Ideally you get a little more out of either Montas or Wendelken so you can skip Lou, but we don’t know whether that was realistic or not.

                We could probably survive without one of Machin, Orf, or Kemp. I guess the question is whether that is worth carrying Weems. This series was tough because their righthandedness took McFarland and Minor out of play.

                • 5Aces 5Aces Oct 1,2020 7:14 pm || Up

                  Yeah, I would be shocked if we didnt get more than 2 innings or so out of Minor, McFarland, Luzardo, and Manaea in the next round.

              I dunno, it’s true we don’t know who had what available today. But we did know that Hendriks would get in, we did know that he was awful yesterday, and that you’d want at least some other option if he ran into trouble again with everything on the line.

              So maybe burning Lou and JBW so quick after Frankie was worth that no Plan B risk. It did work out. Felt horribly risky to me.
