Have I mentioned how much I hate attempted steals of third base? In the case of Rajai Davis, however, I can’t complain. Somebody, has to try something. Had he been successful, I couldn’t have complained had he tried to steal home. There is no sense waiting around for something that rarely comes, clutch, a run producing hit.
Watching Yoenis Cespedes hit in the clutch reminds of the Tigers – A’s playoff series. He did nothing against the Tigers then and he’s doing nothing for the Tigers now. He swings as hard as he can on every pitch, every at bat, and hopes he connects. Hope is not a strategy. Kinsler nothing. Castellanos takes strikes and swings at garbage. Even though Miggy is not as good as his numbers, nobody is going to pitch to him. Why would they? There is nobody else that is even going to have a good at bat.
Five road games, six runs scored.
Sanchez look good for a change. But pitching isn’t the problem is it.
