Or at least pay his own air fare.  His at bat in the 8th was horrendous.  Not only did he look lost trying to lay a bunt down, but we removed Loaiza for him.  Esteban could have gotten the bunt down and stayed in to pitch the 8th.

2 killer losses.

Having him bunt with two strikes is what really perplexed me.  You don't do that unless you have very little faith in your batter, never with a pinch hitter  -- if you have no faith in him why is he pinch hitting? And if he fouled off two bunts, what is the likelihood that he'll bunt the next one fair?

Don't blame the hammer (hitter) when the guy holding it (Frank) uses it as a saw. I pray daily that Frank Robinson, his staff, P.T. Bowden and his cronies aren't there next year.
