And you missed my point. If Pods, Iguchi or Everett would have been in the lineup, perhaps one of them would have done something to spark the team. Maybe Pods gets a couple steals to get everybody going. Maybe Crazy Carl goes deep. Willie went 2-for-3 with two singles. That's nice. Maybe Iguchi goes 3-for-4.
You can spin it anyway you want. A lineup with a top three of Perez, Ozuna and Pierzynski is weak.
