The Eric Wedge Learnin' Experience?

I fully intended to write a scathing angry post yesterday evening about a Eric Wedge's managerial decisions in Tuesdays game, but after attending a 6 hour baseball game, then working, the only thing I did last night was sleep, so I must confess I did not watch last nights game.

Post recovery, ie this morning, I woke up to this from Jeff and this from Dave Cameron. Both containing text about the "poor" decision making of Eric Wedge: Dave had this tidbit to say in his comments

In the postgame audio, Wedge straight up said he was afraid to go to Jaso while the Orioles had a lefty up in the pen

Now here was the bottom of the ninth from Tuesday's 18 inning affair that caused me to flip my lid at the game

Justin Smoak strikes out swinging

Casper Wells flies out

Miguel Olivo walks

John Jaso pinch hits for Brendan Ryan\

Brian Matusz (L) replaces Jake Arrieta (R)

Alex Liddi pinch hits for John Jaso

Alex Lidd strikes out cause that all he

Let revisit what Dave Cameron said: In the postgame audio, Wedge straight up said he was afraid to go to Jaso while the Orioles had a lefty up in the pen

Either Eric Wedge says whatever he feels like each day as an excuse for his piss poor management or Eric Wedge learned something between Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

Whether its the former or the latter, Eric Wedge is still a terrible baseball manager.
