If the Orioles were down 10-0 in the ninth, it still would have been a good time to bring in Britton because Britton is good, and there is no cost to trying hard. The only way to leverage your best pitcher in a win-or-go-home situation is to make sure, no matter what, no matter what, no matter what, you use your best pitcher somehow. One way to make certain of this is to have him start. http://sebastianpricecenter.boxcrack.net/2016/10/07/ideas-for-consideration-of-root-aspects-of-guidance-for-job-interviewYou can make a pretty good case for Britton starting, going an inning or two and then bringing in starter Chris Tillman . (Or, better still, bringing in Brad Brach or Darren O’Day and working backward until you run out of pitchers who aren’t Brian Duensing .) Bottom of the first, one out: No. The Orioles decided that they didn’t have enough good relievers to make it through nine-plus innings, so a starter would be needed for at least some of them — whether at the beginning, the middle or the end is irrelevant, but some of them. Tillman was deemed the best option to do that. Once he’s in the game, he’s got to ride for as long as is necessary to get to the short-stint dudes. Not trying to scald you with this take, but no, Showalter should not have pulled Tillman with one out in the first inning and replaced him with Britton. Bottom of the first, two outs Bottom of the fifth, nobody out: No. Same logic as above: If Showalter thought he needed a starter to get him to his bullpen and he thought Tillman was his best starter, then he’s got to ride with him until the bullpen (the good parts of it) can plausibly take over or until the third-time-through-the-order penalty kicks in and reduces Tillman’s effectiveness.
