You make the call
Men on first and third, 2 outs, and the 5th run is on third. One guy says put a runner on to load the bases. He says this Is a no brainer and is done always in this situation. Another guy says no. He says the batter in this case is the last man in their line up and will most likely make an out, therefore, we don’t load the bases. In discussion after the inning, the second guy says the quality of the guy batting overrides the “put him on” decision. Thus the question; in this situation is it an automatic load them up or is the quality of the batter the overriding factor. What say you?

Normally, I would sacrifice 1 run to get a good hitter out of the way next inning. But, as with the situations grayhitter lists, different situations where 1 run can make a difference will dictate the direction.
