guys, I think Frank KNOWS we have the worst offense right now. His point is 2 runs is about all we can muster at this point, and that should have been enough. He's being a realist, albeit a pessimistic one.
Ayala...next time you're in that situation, make him put the ball in play. You aren't going to strike out A. Jones...and I'd rather see the game end on a hard hit single, then on a bases loaded walk.
