Anybody else notice Danny Santana whips his bat through the zone really fast?

Major League Baseball is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side.

Now whip it
Into shape
Shape it up
Get straight
Go forward
Move ahead
Try to detect it
It's not too late
To whip it
Whip it good

Yeah, agreed- I didn't get that move at all.

 

I was worried Millone was going to try and live on the outside corner all night, but he's changing location fairly well.  Coming inside a little wouldn't hurt, though.

If Schaffer* were in center, and Santana at short, nothing would have happened. I wouldn't have typed the sentence I just typed. I wouldn't have typed the one I just finished. My whole world would be different.

 

*I don't want to learn how to spell his name because that would mean I believe he exists.

If he doesn't exist and he is playing center, does that mean the ball would have not been caught?

OK, that's two errors from our shortstop and two balls our centerfielder at least could have caught.  I was hoping for at least 9 runs in the second inning.

 

Come on, Milone, move somebody's feet a little bit.

Well, it's really three errors now, though they might rule it a hit.

 

He laid back on that- he let it take a bad hop.
