It wasn't Roberts call

October 15, 2021 08:50AM
it came from "higher up" management (aka Friedman) on the plane ride up to the Bay area. Baseball is more of a chess game today than ever before and decisions are being made by those who did not play the game. The thinking was to force Kapler to switch his lineup to more left handed hitters to face the 1st two righty pitcher for the Dodgers thus by bringing in Urias later Kapler would have to switch to right hand hitting batters who would then face right handed relievers Blake Treinen and Jensen and turns out Scherzer. The left hand hitters for the Giants would be gone by then.

Here is a story on how data driven the Dodgers are and this time it worked.
