Course, Dusty never has his third base coach give the take sign. Never.
Oh well, let's go win this game.
Btw....this is exactly the kind of thing I was talking about in the other thread.
The pitch was a strike...the closest strike during the entire at bat to being in the middle of the strikezone. It turns out that the count was ACTUALLY 3-2, but even if it was 3-1...the point stands. Don't you want your hitters to look for a pitch to drive? This kind of comment looks to me like you're looking to take a walk. Like that's your goal? Simply don't get that line of thinking. Looking to hit there is, in my book, the very definition of smart baseball.
