Thanks Bobby Cox

Intentional walk to Lastings Milledge with the game tied in the top of the 14th with runners on second and third, one out and Elijah Dukes on deck? Hey, I understand you're trying to set up the double play, but please god let every manager make that call. Even if Milledge gets the sacrifice run in, you're still better off facing Dukes down one with two outs and the pitcher's spot up next and taking your shots down one against Hanrahan than you are setting up the big inning by loading the bases for our very best hitter.

Now, now. Are you trying to deprive guys like Joe Morgan of their fun?
