And the rally in the first was created because of the hit and run. Instead of a 4-6-3 DP and no runs scored. We score 3 runs.
If you didn't notice the good in the first, you are not really qualified to be knocking Scioscia.
So Scioscia's "bad" move netted us three runs. This is why most people with perspective don't take you people seriously.
You have no perspective and incapable of noticing a Scioscia move netted our team three runs.
Take away that hit and run and Izturis is 0-18.
You are one of these Anti-Kool-Aid drinkers who wouldn't drink the Kool-Aid if it contained a cure for cancer. Ironically the Anti-Kool-Aid drinkers out number the Kool-Aid drinkers by at least 5 to 1.
"Your a Scioscia kool-aid drinker."
"You couldn't be more wrong"
Oh the irony!
Oh, Scioscia is the reason Izturis is 0-18? And any manager who calls the hit and run is simply wrong.
Thank you for proving my point.
If I were writing a TV show and needed an antagonist who was beyond stubborn and wouldn't listen to reason, I couldn't write him any better than you.
On this issue you are the quintessential TV caricature.
MS puts a picture of Anaheimboob on the batting tee.
He could get Ferris Beuhler to do that.
By calling a hit and run at the wrong time. It happens.
The hit and run is a risky play. It worked to perfection last night and led to three runs.
So you don't know there is a play where the runner from first breaks for second and the hitter is told to hit the ball?
You already know this, batters will go out of the strikeout to swing during the "hit and run".
In this case Izturis got a pitch well within the strike zone.
< You couldn't be more wrong >
Sure he could, he could be you. Anytime you start with something like that no one is going to take anything you say seriously. You just sound like a bitter complainer.
