"Last night, down one again, bases loaded again, Cora did it again. He put Perez into an incredibly high-leverage spot, and Perez allowed not just one of the runs to score, but all of them, turning a 3-2 game into a 9-2 final. It’s a weird blind spot, or maybe a couple of them, that has Cora going to a mop-up man in spots where his team still has a very good chance to win. That’s a leak he needs to close."
