Questioning Buck Showalter for bringing in his closer in a tie game is stupid.

1. How many times is Showalter going to have to make the right decision before people stop questioning his use of the bullpen?
B. Jim Johnson has been one of the best — if not the best — closers in baseball.

Johnson just didn’t have it on Sunday night. It’s okay, it happens.

Even ESPN’s Keith Law tweeted that he believes Johnson “is a ridiculously good reliever who didn’t have it tonight.” Right on.”No need to add a narrative after the fact to explain it.”
