More Poor Tactical Decisions

I know the Nats are short on quality relievers, but why MacDougal Saturday night, down two in the ninth with the bottom of the order coming up? Sunday is a day game, so rest will be shorter if they need him to go more than three outs in the heat. Yes, he has only pitched once since June 20th, but all the more reason to get him into the game Sunday, like with a chance win.

I'm not sure who calls the shots keeping the bullpen fresh, but Hanrahan's arm is dead (more on that shortly) and Tavarez is likely to be the next to start getting fatigued.
