I just don't get it

What in the world was Kevin Correia doing batting in the top of the 6th tonight with 2 outs? With the score 7-5 Nats and only 10 outs left, Correia struck out and then went out and pitched the bottom of the 6th and 7th.

I'm sorry, but it makes no sense to me to let the pitcher bat when you're only 2 runs down in the 6th. The Giants are carrying 12 pitchers right now and had an off day Monday, so it's not as if there was no one left to pitch. At that point, the Giants had Todd Greene, Mike Sweeney, Moises Alou, Todd Linden and Jose Vizcaino available to pinch hit. Even Vizcaino is a better option.

Felipe pulled the same stunt last Wednesday in the 7-6 comeback game at Mays Field, letting Morris hit in the bottom of the 6th even though the Giants were down several runs at that point. It didn't work then, either.

Couldn't agree with you more....I just hope Felipe is occupying a rocking chair instead of the Giants' dugout next summer. Is Bob Brenly still available???
