Pulling a cruising Stewart after 5 (not even at 80 pitches), with two outs and no one in scoring position, is a dumb move, no matter who it's for. To pull him for a struggling Reddick is outright lunacy.
Yeah, and it's not like they were hitting line drives at people. Stewart was dominant. Just out and out dominant, and his stuff was electric. Best change I've seen all year and freezing lefties with his tailing 94 mph fastball on the inside corner. One of the best non-Clayton pitching performances I've seen all year. Plus, it's not like we had second and third one out. It was a runner on first and two out. Just idiotic.
Watch for Chavez to revert to normal now.
