WTF was Matheny thinking. I'm frustrated that Boggs was, well, Boggs. But, I'm furious with Matheny for using him in that spot. It blows my mind that this chain of events led to him being used in a 1 run game in the 9th:
-Loses closer role because he sucks
-Sent to AAA because he sucks
-Inexplicably called up from AAA despite sucking at AAA
-Sucks in his first outing after being recalled because he sucks
So, let's put him in a high pressure situation when Maness and Kelly are available. Even though I disagree with some moves Matheny makes, his results have largely gotten him a pass from me. But, that was completely indefensible last night IMO.
In any case, Boggs is in AAA and we called up Keith Butler who A) has worse AAA stats than Boggs (only 5.2IP though) and hasn't had success higher than AA despite being 24. Boggs needs to not be on the roster, but I fear we are solving one problem by creating a second.
