In Wednesday afternoon’s game 5 of the NLCS Craig Counsel did something that may have never been done before. He pulled his starter Wade Miley after one batter, Cody Bellinger. Not because Miley was injured or anything along those lines. From what anyone can tell it was a planned, strategic, move to get the Dodgers to set their lineup for a lefty starter and then end up facing a right handed pitcher in Brandon Woodruff. In addition Miley is now slated to start Friday for the Brewers.
Is Craig Counsel an evil genius making a move like this one or is he just delusional thinking this gives his team a leg up on the Dodgers?
