Bases loaded, one out, Chacin up. What is Walt Wise doing sending him swinging? Where's the strategic whiff strike out?
Yeah, yeah, it worked out good. And yes Chacin can hit for a pitcher. But why WHY would you risk hitting into a double play in this situation?
With the bases loaded and one out and the pitcher up you either swing away, bunt, or take the pitch. The play is to swing away even if the pitcher is not a good hitting pitcher. If you don't something, I would not like Dickerson effort running to first base after swinging at a ball in the dirt that kicked away from the catcher on strike 3 against the Dodgers last night.
