Sure it is, base runners are 10 for 10 on Lo Duca.

No they aren't they were 8 for 9 coming into this game.

Oswalt is going to shut us out the rest of the way.  We need to be patient and run up his count.  Our only chance is to get into the pen.

Whether he is slow to the plate or not, Lo Duca still has not thrown out a base runner all year.

Nieves has one of the strongest arms at his position, and he hasn't even been that successful. He'd proabably be perfect right now if it weren't for our pitchers' long deliveries/lack of focus from the stretch.

Btw, Wiggington really was out at second. I wish they'd show it again. His foot went up before hitting the base and Felipe tagged him on the back.

Pena really has no business on a major league roster.

We just gave Oswalt a 4 pitch inning.  This one is over.

They are because LoDuca threw out Kelly Johnson on Opening Night. Correction, Kelly got picked off 1st base.

They put up the graphic here, too, that he was 0 for 10, but he really was 1 for 9 coming into this game.

I've seen Matt LeCroy catch, so I've seen worse.

Dukes hasn't decided he wants to catch yet.

Zimmerman stayed back on that one nicely. Hopefully a good sign of things to come.

Terrible first pitch hitting.  We just bought Oswalt an extra inning.  Have patience guys.  The only batter that inning with patience was Zimm, and you see the result.
