pup wrote:The end of the first roadie of the season. Against a team that can pitch it pretty well. Hitters seemed to lose their discipline of the strike zone and started to press. A lot of pull happy swings as the game went on.It happens. Get back home. Get a good day of work in Friday during BP and come out ready to go.

peeker643 wrote:If I'm questioning Acta on anything it's starting a struggling young catcher coming off reconstructive knee surgery and not giving Marson yesterday's start.Santana is about ready to grind the handle into sawdust and could have used the day off for sure. I know he has today but you could have bought him an extra mental health day and day to recover physically. Then to have that game go extras and be forced to stick with him because removing him eliminates another catching option behind Marson just compounded the issue.Despite how we see him he's still a young kid and this is the first 'epic' struggle he's seen at the dish (IIRC).Should given dude the day off and most of us said it before yesterday.The game itself was multiple little fundamental issues already discussed adding up to costing you runs on both sides of the scoreboard. That shit happens and good teams will limit the number of games in a season that it occurs.

No way in hell was he the best option.Who was then?Germano and Herrmann have given up runs in just about every game they've pitched in, and you've got to keep Raffy Perez in tow in case you need to close the game out later. Realistically, he had no great options left, short of bringing in a starter to pitch an inning.Once he blew threw his top relievers (rightfully so) the Tribe was vulnerable, but he played it straight by putting a veteran out there rather than his long man or Herrmann who is struggling similarly.Rock and hard place.
