Bunting with two outs, down two, with runners on second and third? Pokey! We know you know better. And look what happens. We don’t catch up. The game ticks on. Next time your slot comes up with ducks on the proverbial pond, you’re pinched and we have to send Cesar Crespo out there to replace you. And that costs us a run. Swing away.
PS: If you hear anyone whining about the decline of Pedro, tell them he looked just fine to me.
