Can't really disagree, but it's much easier to sit in stands and second


guess. But you are correct at least in the 7th when he struck out last 3 on the same pitch. However, as you get later in the game and continue to struggle, it's only natural to keep chasing and pressing even when you know better and try not to.

Same thing had been happening until last night with Trea Turner whom had been excellent most of the year but got into a slump to start at 0-17 in the series and it kept making him chase more and more and I was yelling at him to just take 2 or 3 pitches every at bat and force at least a strike out and stop giving it away in key moments. Baseball is so mental like that (I can relate with my golf game) and it can be maddening.
