For those regular readers, sorry for the lack of posts but I attended last night's game and had a quick turn around to work all day...
Onto the seventh inning, now, if the group I sit with in the nose bleed section could figure out that Jerry Manuel was managing the seventh into a disaster, how couldn't he figure it out. There was mild criticism of pulling Johan, but when Parnell gets two outs with a man on second, everyone was screaming to leave him in, work carefully to McCann with an open base and if you can't get him, go after Diaz.
The entire section had more confidence in Parnell, then anyone not named Putz or Rodriguez. Bringing in Feliciano felt like over management and we would have been completely wrong if Reyes doesn't boot the ball, but there was absolutely no way you leave in Feliciano to pitch to a righty, even with Anderson ready to pinch hit.
