Big Willie Style

Big Willie Randolph gets a lot of flak for his game management skills. He's not a brainy dude and and eschews the 'so-called-percentages'. Like the 'so-called-percentages' that say unless the pitcher is up, its better to have a man on 1st with no out than a man on 2nd with 2 outs?

But I am not here to pillory Big Will. It was a minor descrepency and we won the game. Plus how often do you see a 12th inning rally that features 2 bunts including a walk off drag bunt?

As long as we continue to pile on wins, I will allow Willie to use his 'I have confidence in my guys' excuse for all of his blunders. But bare in mind, Mr. Randolph, that come playoff time I may not be so forgiving.

Good use of fangraphs, Kenny. Also- thank G-d we're so much better than the freakin' Rockies.
