random deafsports thoughts

DeafDigest Sports editor, as a young man many years
ago, played softball for deaf club teams.

He vividly recalls one tournament game where the pitcher
of his team pitched a beautiful game, shutting down the
opponent. For some reason, the coach, who depended totally
on analytics, outsmarted himself, removing that pitcher
in the last inning.

The relief pitcher fell apart, giving up runs to the
opponent, costing the team the win.

DeafDigest Sports editor asked the coach why would he
pull out the hot pitcher in favor of an ineffective
reliever.

The coach defended himself, saying he did nothing
wrong as a coach.

Look back at Tampa Bay manager doing exactly the
same thing in the World Series against the Dodgers!
