Agree. Poor coaching decision to send the runner. When you need several


runs that runner could score on any of the hits, walks, errors, etc that would be needed to score those runs. That is one where the coach needs to know before the play starts what he/she will do in certain situations. With 2 outs and needing 1 run that is the call, but down 4 and no outs, that one is on the coach. Of course this assumes the coach sent her and not that she ran through a stop sign. I was yelling at the screen when it happened that the play was not a smart one, even though I was rooting for FSU.

I made a similar comment about Pete earlier this year about being a little too aggressive in sending players home when several got thrown out and one got lucky with an obstruction call.
