Colin, Tom and Matt react to the Mariners 4-1 loss to Pittsburgh. Hypothetical: Would you pinch hit for Justin Smoak with Kendrys Morales if it was still a one-run game in the 9th?
Based off the hypothetical above, Tom and Matt would pinch hit for Smoak while Colin would let him hit as it's more important for his development. Callers weigh in.
More calls on what leash you would give Smoak in a "game on the line" situation. It seems like callers would rather see what Smoak can do, as one caller says "the Mariners are not a playoff contender, so one win in May isn't that important".
