Did Tony La Russo make the right decision here?

Intentionally walks Trea Turner on a 1-2 count and 2 outs after Freeman gets to 2nd and 1st base “opens.”

Muncy immediately hits a 3 run bomb to take the lead by 1.

LINK to The Score with some Twitter videos


Muncy celebrated by yelling to La Russa, “frick you, bitch!”

Terrible decision by LaRussa.
1 ball 2 strikes. You can waste 3 pitches out of the zone. He may have struck out chasing 1 of those.

No.


With a 1-2 count you had the hitter at your mercy.

Now if count was 2-1 or 3-1 yea i would of walked him and faced the lefty

Surprisingly happened to Turner last year on the same count and 2 outs as well against the Rockies. Lux stole second on the ball that made the count 1-2

The thing is analytics has been a good in sports to a degree. It works out a lot or ppl wouldn't use it. But at the same time you can't manage or coach a sport solely on that. You have to know your players and all the gut feeling part to. You cannot take the human element out of it also.

Bro. I guarantee you analytics did not suggest walking a guy on a 1-2 count.

If your read La Russo’s explanation that’s exactly what he did. He talked about Turner’s avg with two strikes and Muncy’s avg against lefties or some retarded crap.

The idea that this was a call supported by analytics or that TLR is a big analytics guy is hilarious.

I have a hard time believing his average with two strikes is better than his average with zero strikes, when they were pitching to him.
