News and Notes: Happy First Opportunity to Complain About the 2024 Cleveland Guardians Day!

April Fools! There really is something to complain about while rooting for a baseball team EVERYDAY if you look hard enough.

But, the complaints are particularly numerous after the Guardians fell 4-3 to the Oakland Athletics in a walkoff loss:

- Why did the Guardians try a safety squeeze play with runners on first and third with nobody out in a tie game late with a player who has had two successful sacrifice bunts in the past four years of his professional career at the plate?

- Why did manager Stephen Vogt pitch Scott Barlow for a second inning in a row and then bring Eli Morgan in for the third out of four games with the bases loaded instead of closer Emmanuel Clase?
