"Look, the game management realm is 100 percent the manager's purview, and I'm not going to stand here and second guess any decisions he's making. Obviously we all have the benefit of hindsight right now in evaluating a decision. Our conversations in private are about the conversations that lead up to the decision or the thought process that leads up to the decision. And from my standpoint, it's important to make sure that process is sound and that he and our coaches all have the right information when they're making a strategic in-game decision, and I'm very pleased with where they are from an information standpoint and from a process standpoint. But it's not my place, certainly publicly, to second guess in-game managerial decisions."
But it is your job. It's exactly your job. Maybe not publicly, but it's your job. Do it.
