It's been very frustrating to listen to this game today. Even when our defense isn't making errors, they're throwing balls into the dirt, missing routine plays, pulling the first baseman off of the bag w/ their throws. I think I heard four consecutive plays last inning that contained either a defensive blunder or a mental error or both. Sounds like we've given them a number of gift runs. Luckily, it's early and screwups are expected AND a number of guys are playing out of position for the sake of experimentation. So far, they've only recorded one actual error, but Farmer has noted that we've given the DBacks several gift runs.
