Mantiply was not the focus of my original consternation (although later I did indicate I would have let him go longer). I would not have had Burke come in in the middle. Let him pitch a few Sunday. Then bring in Markey, who has come in like that previously. I think Burke was put in an unfamilar position, and he did not respond that well initially (yes an error extended an inning but he gave up 8 hits or something in two innings). Hopefully, he shrugs it off going forward.
In the end, Tech won, and I hope they win 4 more regular season games.
agreed that markey has a little more experience coming out of the pen. i think that was the second time this year for burke, and neither has gone over well. despite it being less than ideal, i like the idea of having one pitcher on short rest instead of two. it's kind of unfortunate that we had a two game series before a thursday series. it shook things up a bit.
It's not that you are ignorant, it's just that you know so much that isn't so.
