It's way dumber than that. First, all of this is happened with 1 out. So the game is tied and guys on 1st and 2nd with 1 out. Melvin takes out Axford. Okay, Axe was abysmal tonight, but he bring in Scrabble to face Beltre. Instead of going with a righty on righty or something, he orders Scrabble to IBB Beltre, thereby putting the winning run at 3rd base with only 1 out and loading the bases again. Why would anyone do this unless it was Barry Bonds up? I love Beltre more than anyone and he's been hot but putting the winning run at 3rd base with 1 out??? And why bring in Scrabble to IBB him first? Scrabble hits Odor with the first pitch..... Odor gets mad and rushes the mound and floors Scrabble with a right uppercut and knocks him out. Game over.
Okay, that last part is untrue, but it might as well be.
