This is also my understanding of why Cash pulled him

Russillo had some interesting thoughts on his pod last week on manager's making moves like this. Said it is pretty widely accepted by people "in the know" in baseball that in many organizations, the managers sole responsibility is carrying out the gameplan that is passed down from the front-office. Meaning pulling guys in certain moments was pre-determined before the game started. Certainly seems like that might have been the case with Cash here -- although he would never say that publicly.

It is also why many MLB managers are paid very little relative to head coaches in the other big US leagues.
