Wow… After friday nite’s 9th inning I didn’t think Sunday’s game could possibly be worse… and then it was.
Frank Francisco went Benitez again by immediately allowing the first 3 batters to reach with no out before going crazy on the ump over balls strikes. Acosta almost got us out of it until Giancarlo (?!?) Stanton launched a 2 out, walk off grand slam.
OK Terry who’s next in line for closer? Because Francisco clearly needs a break from his duties at the moment.
FrankFranc lost control of his emotions out there and I gotta believe that convinced TC to make a change.
Collins had the acumen and class not to announce anything during postgame but change is definitely afoot.
BMF loved the TC quote “ I’m not going to address that right now, when emotions are running high.” That was a brilliant look into Collins’ mindset.
Terry also said there are ” 8 options” to close - my money sez Jon Rausch gets the nod. I mean if you have an 8 foot tall pitcher he should be closing for you.
