    I get that, but KK homered off Kershaw in game one and is hitting over .300 in the WS, plus at least you move the lineup.

    Having KK lead off the next inning with no one on just set the lineup back one spot.

    I tend to agree, but, if it had worked, it would have been heralded as genius... I think I heard it would have been the first succesful World Series home burglary since 1955.

    Taking Snell out was a panic move. Dodgers will win this game. It's too bad really. It would have been a good game 7.

    I can’t believe Cash took out Snell. I get listening to the analytics and following what you’ve done all season ...but it’s the WS and Snell was on fire. The top of the line up was 0-6 against him.

    He's made a lot of good decisions this year but I'm afraid that one might end the season. Inexcusable in my opinion.

    This is where the coach has a history of making a lot of great moves and almost becomes a little conceded only to be humbled by one of the worst decisions ever in a game six World Series. Snell was dominating and had already struck out Betts twice making him look silly. Ryan Anderson has been getting shelled this entire series. Just an absolute and historically, one of the worst moves in World Series history.

    That was indefensible.

    Down 3 games to 2, a self-inflicted turning point in the game. Defies explanation

    I like Zunino, especially since he was a gator, but this guy can’t frame a pitch to save his life. He is not helping the umpire of his pitchers.

    Friggin Rays bats are dead. Where is Pedro Cerrano with some Vudu stuff?

    Whelp, unless some magic happens I’m afraid Cash “managed” the Rays out of the World Series.

    Joe Buck and John Smoltz gushing over the dodgers bullpen is so annoying. The Rays have no plate discipline and literally swing at everything. They have made every pitcher look good this year.

    Pulling Snell was a dumb move but they scored 1 run, Snell wasn't going to toss a shutout, the O gets a lot of blame here as well.

    If you just saw the graphic before the commercial break, the rays five, six and seven hitters are combined 0-9. Yikes!!!

    Pitiful way to end the game/season. Last two hitters watch strike 3. Major league defense with minor league offense.

    Wasn't that he pulled him, it was the when. Really poor timing.
