The same manager that left Tyler Glasnow out there to die for 112 pitches when he didn’t have it took Blake Snell out of an elimination game when he had a 2-hit shutout going at 73 pitches with the part of the order coming up that was 0-for-6 with 6 strikeouts on the night. How.
"I just want the ball. I felt good. ... I just believe in me. I believe in my stuff."

The next three hitters Blake Snell was due to face -- Mookie Betts, Corey Seager and Justin Turner -- were 0 for 6 with six strikeouts tonight against Blake Snell.
Betts just doubled off Nick Anderson. Second and third with one out.
Turner tested positive and probably spread it to Kevin Cash who lost his sense of snell
Jack Morris, on phone just now, on 29th anniversary of his Game 7:
“Blake Snell was throwing better tonight than anyone I’ve ever seen in the World Series. These analytics guys we have now think numbers are more important than having an ace at his best on the hill.” ...

Everyone: "Why did you take out Blake Snell when he was dealing???"
Rays Manager Kevin Cash joined @Ken_Rosenthal
after Game 6 and explained his decision to pull Blake Snell in the 6th inning.
Mookie Betts' reaction to see Blake Snell leave the game: "Oh, man, it was kind of a sigh of relief. If he had stayed in the game, he might have pitched a complete-game [shutout]. That was the Cy Young Snell that came tonight.''
Adames kept coming up In big situations and failing. A little odd that Cash kept thinking he would come through. In the postseason Adames was 0-for-8 with 5 K’s in last 2 games and hit .136 with .203 slug % (25 k’s in 73 PA). Seemed strange Cash trusted Adames but not Snell.
Lapidario lo que dijo Mookie Betts, en turno cuando Cash decidió sacar a Snell: "Oh hombre, fue como un suspiro de alivio. Si se hubiera quedado en el juego, podría haber lanzado blanqueo. Esta noche vino el Cy Young Snell”. Betts estaba con Boston, cuando Snell ganó el Premio.
Brilante manejo del bullpen de manager Dave Roberts y ejecuciones precisas de varios héroes dieron triunfo a #Dodgers en el juego 6. Polémica decisión de Kevin Cash con Snell para valientes #Rays que nunca bajaron la cabeza.
Best chance to win for Rays was a 1-0 game with Snell going as long as possible. Dodgers ecstatic when Snell came out. That’s something numbers don’t show — other team doing backflips. There’s a chance TB blows it in 8th or 9th anyway. Hard to win with only 1 hitter doing damage.
Blake Snell is 1st pitcher in MLB history with 9+ K and 2 Hits or fewer allowed in a World Series game that his team lost.
What did you think when they took Snell out?
"I was like, 'Whew, thank you!' He was rolling." https://t.co/YxOS7x375J
Coaches are asked if their ideas are “subjective” or “objective”. Subjective thinking would have left Snell in based on the eye test and feel. Objective thinking says the data shows a starter should be pulled 3rd time through lineup. This is the present day MLB coaching quandary.
