Worst coaching decisions, playoffs not including two guys getting tagged out at home on the same play edition

Watching the Twins/A's game today, Ron Gardenhire made a move that made ol' Johnnie B. look good by comparison.

Exhibit A: The Twins' 8-9-1-2 hitters in today's lineup hit a combined SIX home runs this year in 1,594 at bats (1 HR/265.67 AB). For comparison: Carlos Zambrano (still a pitcher) had six home runs in 73 at bats (1 HR/12.17 AB).

Exhibit B: The Twins, with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, sent Nick Punto (1 HR in 459 AB) to the plate as the tying run in a 5-2 game. Punto had the third worst home run rate out of 162 qualifying major leaguers this year, trailing only Jason Kendall and Willy Taveras. More perspective: JUAN PIERRE was more than twice as likely to hit a home run in a given plate appearance than Punto. Juan fuckin' Pierre!

Exhibit C: The Twins had not made a substitution yet, and as such had Phil Nevin (22 HR/397 AB) remaining on the bench. Now, I'm no rocket surgeon or anything, but he was 25.6 times more likely to hit a game-tying home run than Nick Punto!

Exhibit D: Ron Gardenhire is a moron.
