I'm really not sure exactly where Vogelsong was, and yes, I know he can only go 80 pitches. I'm not really criticizing the move to take him out, necessarily, just the move to not have Affeldt come in to replace him for the vastly better matchup. If he was going to take the right-handed starting pitcher out, he ought to have put in the left-handed reliever for that spot.
