No sorry you're only partially right, because despite the crappy pitching we still had a golden opportunity to win the game, but due to extreme managerial incompetence we had no bench players available with the bases loaded no outs in the 9th, so we had to use a pitcher who was instructed to not swing with the bases loaded.

That Arizona game falls squarely on Tracy. I've watched baseball since 93 and I can't ever say I've seen a manger blow it that hard, how in the world do you use every possible bench player before the 9th inning? 2 of those bench players didn't even take an at bat (Herrera and EY) and were pretty much just wasted.

That was the biggest joke I've ever witnessed. That game should have single handedly cost Tracy his job.
