See, this is the problem.  Runners at the corners, two out...and up comes friggin' Carlos Baerga.

Unless this changes we're doomed.  Bring in Guuuuz to pinch-hit!

edit: At least Baerga knows how to get hit by a pitch.  Now up comes the offensive powerhouse of Esteban Loaiza!

When the situation calls for a clutch bat - perhaps a 2-out bases loaded situation, or a tricky double-play threat - Guuuuz is your man.

That's why he's my hero.

I see that Vidro is taking over Guzman's double play duties.

So much for that bag o'luck...either that or you're sprinkling it on the 'Stros and not on us.

*sigh*

Well, at least I got into a good law school yesterday.  I count my blessings.

It's time to stop the easy outs.  This is ridiculous.

We give up homers to guys who aren't exactly tearing it up usually (remeber Closser yesterday). But no nat has any power, this is truly ridiculous.
