Evan Grant: Ninth Inning Bullpen Management "Inexcusable"

Evan Grant has a post-mortem on the various and sundry mistakes from last night's loss, and in particular, lays into Ron Washington, Mike Maddux, and Jackie Moore for not having Neftali Feliz ready to face Adam Rosales as the second batter in the ninth inning, calling the mistake "inexcusable."

Grant is also critical of the decision by Washington to bunt with Elvis Andrus in the fifth inning, and Andrus's decision to ignore the swing away sign and bunt with two strikes that inning, while also examining other decisions and mistakes (whether physical or mental) from yesterday's game.
