Fletcher is the perfect leadoff hitter with his remarkable ability to get on base. He isn't a power hitter but does have speed on the bases.

You gotta laugh at the how the manager always pulls the guy RIGHT AFTER he blows the game.

He made the trip around the bases TWICE last night... that's a lot of exertion for a guy his age.

Seems like Maddon treated the situation too casually and let it get out of hand. With a three run lead over a losing team he thought they could just coast the rest of the way. 

These are the games you need to have the opposite mindset. A killer instinct to bury the opponent and secure the win. Especially this 60 game season.

Exactly this.

My rant about what just happened...

Madden is known for wanting to give guys opportunities and making moves to make moves -- fine,  whatever.   Yes, they had a three run lead and it's early -- but if you're going to pull the SP that was pretty much grooving after he let a runner reach base -- why don't you go to a guy you can trust to get you out of the inning and then be the guy that gives everyone playing time when nobody is on base.

Maddon's tendencies weren't the issue for me so much as his going with a guy with no history of success and an established history of giving up base-runners and hits.  Mayer has never completed a season where he gave up fewer hits than innings pitched in his four short MLB seasons.   Just stupid.

Im gonna laugh if Service pulls Shaw right here and they get out of the inning.
