It was obvious Meek did not have what it took to get out of that inning. Even Hurdle was quoted as saying the reason he kept Meek in the game was to see if he COULD get out of a bad situation. In my opinion Hurdle left Meek in a bad situation to fail.

That's where I agree with BB. Not when the game is on the line and especially after Meek was called back up from Indy.

I would think you would want to ease Meek back into the role of being a successful reliever.

Hurdle should have pulled Evan after there was first sign of trouble. And that should have been after the first or second walk he gave up.

This. I had no problem with him being brought out in the first place. I had the problem when Hurdle had a chance to give his team a better chance to succeed after Meek put them in a dangerous situation. That would have meant bringing in Cruz. Even if Meek would have gotten LaRoche out, I would have questioned the move. So it's not about Meek.

The Bucs are going all the way, all the way this year!
