    It would be nice to score at least one run today.

    C'mon Dozier -- any kind of hit kills the shutout.

    At least Doumit killed the shutout.

    ---Yeah he doesn't seem to have the greatest feel for when to send guys, does he? He's held up a bunch of runners I thought should have been sent this year, why he decided that was the time to be aggressive I don't know.

    Some things: bunting is always stupid with a guy only on first. But it is insanely stupid if A: one is down by 4 runs, B: Drew Butera is on deck, and C: if the batter can actually get a hit, esp. and extra base hit. Dozier is smarter than that. Blyleven calling that a rookie mistake is asinine. It's more like a freshman in high school mistake at best.

    Did Little actually send Plouffe, or did Plouffe do that on his own. I didn't see a wave from Little on the replay.

    Dempster is very good.

    Swarzak is not very good. He and Jeff Gray need to go away and I have said that since the beginning of the season.

    Bremer said that he sent Plouffe, though I didn't actaully see the replay.

    Yeah, that bunt by Dozier was really dumb. Thankfully, he does seem smarter than that, so I'm hopeful we won't see that mistake repeated.

    I was at the game and Plouffe was slowing up to stop at third and Liddle definitely sent him. It might have been worth a try down by one run with a speedier runner but not in that situation.
