They deserved to lose that game.

And they will lose this series because of this. Teams don’t recover from blowing back to back game like the Phillie s have. Have to consider firing Thompson when they lose this series

Hitters who won't swing at strikes and pitchers who won't throw strikes with a manager who over-manages in the later innings.

Thomson not with his best effort in this one.

Dominguez had settled in and you had to maintain that 5-2 lead.

Yeah I can’t have a manager that just sticks to a script in the post season, no matter how someone is pitching.

Especially if you are going to pull your starter this early where you will need 19 outs.

Find the relievers that have it going and try to ride them.

Don’t pull Dominguez just because uhh your script. Horrible

Thompson isn't getting fired.

But you do have to ask why Walker and Lorenzon have not been used this series. Especially tonight

You can’t waste Hoffman in the 3rd inning.

He is by far their best RH reliever. Not even close.

If they aren’t going to pitch; why are they on the roster?

To the point he has overworked the entire bullpen and basically needs another dominant outing from Wheeler due to the offense scuffling.

He did this last season in the playoffs and by the of the World Series the pen was on fumes. Thompson didn’t learn anything obviously. Pathetic that he turned to Kimbrel this game.

Back to back games, Thompson bullpen usage and has been brutal
