This is the 2nd time today that we have tried to advance the runner to 2nd. Both times we hit it right back to the pitcher who goes to 2nd and gets the lead runner.

We cannot bunt! What? We cannot bunt!

Bunting and base running are not covered during spring training.

DAMN IT, Paul O'Neil has 20 stolen bases this year.

Yeah, I expected that. I am listening on the radio to this one and Singleton is on 1st, I turn to my brother and say "Watch him get gunned down trying to make up for his bad bunt." Bingo!

The worst part is ... If Singleton gets the bunt down, we have a man on 2nd ... Clayton singles which would have brought in El Caby

Anyone wonder why we are a .500 team?

I believe that would be:

EXECUTION: both physically and mentally.

Was this team ready to play this year coming out of spring training?

No, we weren't ready & then we got bashed with injuries. Nuff said.
