Agree about Freddy bunting. He's such a good contact guy and hits so well to the right side, that should have dictated hitting and maybe he gets a hit or moves him over.

But still, when asked to bunt, you have to bunt well.

If we're patient with this young kid, he will not last.


Freddie wasn't trying a sacrifice bunt. He was trying to bunt for a base hit. Shortened up late and tried to push the ball on the first base side of the diamond. I'd be willing to be serious bucks that he tried that on his own and it wasn't called.
Nice to see the Bucs take advantage (somewhat) of this young lefty. On McLouth's steal, he didn't look back at second base. The kid looks like he can hardly wait to throw the next pitch. He is in a big hurry. Monroe helped him out on the 3-1 pitch and Big LaRoche tried to pull a pitch that should have been hit to the opposite field. Let's hope that stranded runner doesn't come back to bite us.

I know the weather is bad, but there must be fewer than 1000 people in the park.

We're making it too easy for Miller.

There isn't alot there tonight but alot of people stay up near the concession stands when the weather is bad. More are coming back down if you look behind home plate.

Two innings-- Miller has 47 pitches, 23 strikes 24 balls-- be patient, he'll self destruct.

Andy with a fine play on Bonifacios bunt and Jack making it difficult plays look routine. Nice defense in the third.

Ohlendorf doing a nice job of working inside to outside. His change looks pretty good but I'm wondering what happened to his 95 mph fastball?

I've eviscerated Jack for his offense on this board, but his defense is a thing of beauty. This last play he made from shallow center going to his left would almost certainly have been a base hit past-the-diving Jeter.

Man what a throw by Jaramillo to get Ramirez!

And Ohlendorf finishes off Uggla with a wicked circle change.

I believe the Aflac trivia question is the Marlins in 1997 and the Diamondbacks in 2001.

They said three teams, add the Mets in 1969 and 1986 and I think we have it.

EVISERATED -- impressive

Was a great throw to second

Adam LaRoche is painfully slow.

I'm talking Willie Stargell circa 1979 slow.

How could the Diamondbacks not be one of them?
Was the question what 3 expansion teams have won 2 world series since 1969 because if it was just one then there are 4 teams?
I forgot about the Blue Jays all together.

Miller has now past 80 pitches in 4 innings. What two more innings or less??

Pirates are running maniacs tonight. Everyone but Adam who moves somewhat like me.

According to Wiki, the D Backs only won once, 2001.

Like to know what No.9 thinks of those two wild pitches. IMHO Baker should have stopped both. Is his catching weak??
