To take a line from one of the greatest comedy routines ever "Who's on First", tonight's game was one of the most interesting scenarios I've ever seen in baseball. A sport that truly defines every week that something new can happen, has happened...at least for me. I've never seen a pitcher moved to another position for one at-bat just to be preserved for later in the game. And it worked!
I have a feeling this might not be the only time Lou does this during the season...in fact, the genius approach might have other managers scratch their heads and realize that a specialty pitcher can in fact stay in the game after one at-bat.
But that isn't the entire point of this post. I thought during the All Star Break we can talk about some of the strangest things you can remember a manager on the Cubs or another team has done.
The only other oddity I've ever seen was a Mets game in what had to be the 90s when they had 6 infielders for one at-bat. Wish I could remember more to the game.
So share, I bet there are some strange moments we can all recall!
