Protesting

In the bottom of the 7th inning in today's game Florida manager Fredi Gonzalez sent Alejandro De Aza to pinch hit for pitcher/9 hole hitter Renyel Pinto. When the 8th inning started Gonzalez called in Leo Nunez to pitch, while being slotted for the leadoff spot. However, Chris Coghlan, the original left fielder, remained in the game for one pitch. Girardi then protested the lineup moves and de Aza was sent out to left, only to be replaced by Jeremy Hermida. The game was played under protest and the umps filed a report, so we may end up resumig the game from the top of the eighth on a return trip to Miami to replay the last two innings. This is all pending a decision by majore league baseball.
