Yep. I commented during the game that I was surprised Dusty didn't pinch run for Renteria. For 2 reasons, I wanted more speed on the bases there AND I wanted a better defender going down the stretch. But I was proved wrong on the first count...and as for Janish getting to that ball...I'm not sure he does either. It was enough doubt for me to not get upset at Dusty about it.
