This is about as mad/frustrated as I think JoePo generally gets when he writes. Almost every writer I know of who follows KC baseball day in and day out (Poz, Mellinger, Rany, etc) has seriously criticized Hillman's irrational preference for Professor Tatersworth. That preference has already cost us two games at least, and the season is barely two weeks old.
Most frustrating (to me, anyways) is the fact that yesterday made it abundantly clear that Hillman has learned nothing from the Opening Day debacle, as it was almost the exact same situation: having Farnsy pitch to the heart of a dangerous, HR-hitting lineup in one of the best homer-hitting parks in the AL, in an incredibly high-leverage situation.
Man, that's depressing.
