Morning pixels: Davey pulls Gio, everyone gets mad


Despite a great outing through seven, Davey Johnson did not send Gio Gonzalez out in the eighth, a move that did not sit well with some of the folks watching at home.

The instant outrage on Twitter was obvious, and many were quick to hand Davey a scarlet ”O” for over managing.

After the game, Johnson explained that he saw an opportunity to tack on some runs, so he pulled Gio for pinch hitter Tyler Moore. But it wasn’t without a conscience.

“I felt bad in the eighth inning when I pinch hit for him, because he was going back out there,” Davey said.

Now, does everyone feel better?

BECAUSE YOU DON’T READ THE PAPER...
* Steven Goff has a great profile on Ben Olsen, who will coach the MLS All-Star team against Chelsea tonight.

* Gio Gonzalez got his revenge on the Mets last night.

* The Olympics have a special meaning for Tennis stars. Andy Roddick sums it up: “You can say you’re a tennis player, and that will resonate with some people. You can say you’re an Olympian, and that will resonate with everybody.”

* The Redskins have to address some issues in the secondary.
