We got nuthin!

Wilkie and Wilson did their jobs by striking out on balls either in the dirt or at their ankles.  Vidro barely even ran down the line up on his chopper to second.  

There is no way we generate a run against Hoffman in the 9th.  For the record, if we go to the bottom of the 9th down by one run I predict:

Church - strikeout
Castilla - one hop ground out to third (probably on first pitch)
Bennet - will have a good at bad but line out to RF.

I can tolerate Wilkie's strikeouts, outrageous as they are for a leadoff man, because at least he does give us other things - he's an underrated CF, and he gets on base often enough.  But Wilson is a disgrace in the field (he missed TWO outs tonight that would have been gimmes for any semi-competent fielder) and darn close to one at the plate.  A useless acquisition that's done nothing except curb playing time for Church.
