    I guess I don't get the sac bunt in the first inning. And if you're doing that because you're afraid of the double play, or something else, then maybe you should find another two hole.

    Really not trying to be negative, I just don't understand the strategy this early in the game.

    Ask the Brewers, they did (or attempted) the same thing.

    and I don't get it when they do it either....that early in the game. Why would you give away outs that early?

    The strategy was likely because of the rain.

    Baker wanted an early lead thinking a small lead might hold up in a five inning game ended by rain.

    Of course bunting in front of Votto is an invitation to an intentional walk. But here, they pitched to him and he fanned.

    Gallardo is a good pitcher, but surprised to see both Votto and Bruce fan there with RISP.

    Does everyone on the Brewers need to step out of the batter's box between every pitch?

    Interesting....Rickie Weeks is struggling so he's been dropped to 7th in the order.

    they were talking about that very thing on the broadcast, suggesting they're trying to get Cingrani off his game....slow him down, get him out of his rhythm.

    So now the Brewers have the SS hitting second.

    Dusty keeps Cozart second to have L, R, L, R, L. This game the entire lineup is L, R, L, R, L, R, L, R up to the pitcher.
