This game is more than simple stats. Everyone thats ever watched the Cardinals play knows Lynn could piss down his leg if things don't go his way. Okay, so you ignore that and pitch him based on his stats over the last 4 games. I could see that decision based on pure stats.
But, after he gets 3 runs on him, has pissed down his leg and has to bat the next inning........to leave him in, during the playoffs. That was managerial malpractice.
