I don’t really have a problem with the lineup but to paraphrase NH ‘it wasn’t the ’27 Yankees”. So why wouldn’t Hurdle give that lineup the best possible opportunity to pull out a W? Take out a struggling pitcher before he takes the whole team out of the game.

I find it weird for Hurdle to give Walker and Alvarez one of his patented two-day breaks so early in the season, but I can understand why he did it. They are both struggling to get hits early on, so if there is a time to scratch them, it’s against a lefty like Miley.

- What I found very odd is that even though Wednesday showed the best defensive infield the team can muster (Harrison, Barmes, McDonald, Sanchez), there were still many fielding miscues. Can’t really draw many conclusions from that, but it was unfortunate.

Free money.

Let McPherson or Justin Wilson (and his wildness) cut their teeth as the 5th starter until Karstens or Liriano is ready.

Name 2 starters in the big leagues worse than Sanchez.

It’s OK to admit your mistakes and cut your losses. Sanchez will not win any games for us. He won’t last past the 5th inning, kill the bullpen rotation, and he will suck the life out of me as a fan.

PLEASE end this.

Clint Hurdle lost this game. He knew the lineup was going to struggle to score runs. In the Second inning it was clear that Sanchez wasn’t going to rebound from a bad outing. He should have been taken out when it was still 3-0. He needs to be more concerned with winning games. It’s like he expected to lose and was ok with it. Frustrating.

I think the white flag was being waived the moment the ump got the batting order. Absolutely no reason for Barmes and McDonald to be in the same starting lineup ever.
