The problem with being patient against Carpenter was that he was throwing strikes on almost every first pitch. We were getting behind on the counts and then his curve was killing us. He was similar to Kenny Rogers in that respect. I thought that we should have been prepared to swing at the first pitch a lot more often after he showed that he had the control. It was almost always a fastball down the middle. Also, I don't really understand the criticism of Zumaya's throw to third base. Why was that such a bad decision? He just screwed up the throw... and it didn't matter anyways because we didn't score a run.
