Well, as I pointed out earlier Miley is death on lefties. It made all the sense in the world to let him sit and not stuggle against Miley. Bochy is a smart man,

He's not Clayton Kershaw, but Belt has been struggling regardless and I don't disagree with him being sat. It's just funny to me that he double switches him in an unfavorable matchup.

On a side note I think Belt is 1/2 with a double vs. Miley.

No he isnt Clayton Kershaw but he has given up just 1 HR in his career to a lefty so far. The double switch was an obvious move. Arias had made the last out in the 8th inning and Arizona had a rhp in the game at the time. Bochy did not put Belt in the game in an unfavorable matchup when he made the double switch.

1 for 3 with a K actually. But meaningless with that small of a sample size
I know it's early, but this 2013 team is giving me the warm and fuzzy feeling already. Hoping our starting pitching picks up some slack soon.

Bochy benched Belt against a lefty twice in the last three games for a right handed batter matchup and will do so again tomorrow from what he said today. How is letting him hit against a lefty not unfavorable? You're just splitting hairs here.

Were you watching the game? He didnt pinch hit him. He put him in the field as part of a double switch when he brought Romo in the game in the top of the 9th. I am not splitting hairs. I am telling the situation as it was. There was NOT a lefty in the game for Arizona when Bochy put him in the obvious double move switch.

Jeez man.

Jeez man.

I edited it, ref**kinglax. What I'm getting at is a) the irony of him sitting against a lefty starter and the getting the winning hit against a lefty and b) Bochy not lifting him for right hander in that situation.

And yes, I saw the game and saw the double-switch.

I am perfectly relaxed. Was just correcting you and trying to put it out why the double move was obvious. By the way, the only 2 RH batters on the bench were Quiroz and Sanchez. Thats it. Hardly a situation where Bochy would have hit for Belt in the 9th. Anyway.. moving on
