    Steve Smith - 3rd base coach

    I would have thought (by this time) that he would have knowledge of each player and how fast they are. But from what I have seen, he doesn't. The guys are told to run, so they run. And too many are thrown out - easily thrown out. I guess they could refuse, knowing their own speed better. Which is worse to Mgr. Price - a player that doesn't do as he is told, or a 3rd base coach that doesn't seem to know his players?

    Add to that Price's comment that they're not going to "curb it", and the stupidity is just going to continue, apparently.

    I'm very disappointed in Price for that comment. He doesn't have to throw Smith under the bus, but he apparently thinks sending guys with no outs is actually a smart move.
