    Ortiz is the worst bunter in Major League Baseball.

    I really don't think there's another contender for that award.

    I don't think I've ever heard Marty go off on a player for lack of performance like he did for Encarnacion's first-pitch pop out after LaRue walked on 4 pitches. He said some people will be apologists and cite the fact that he's a rookie but that doesn't matter. He should know better than to swing on the first pitch when a pitcher is struggling to find the zone.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Aurilia dealt by this time tomorrow. But I don't have a problem giving him props while he's still in a Cincy uni. Reds don't beat the Pirates the other night without his 2-out double in the 9th off Mesa. (And they probably get no-hit by Derek Lowe on July 25th, if not for RA's single in the 5th)
    Never overlook the obvious

    White Sox lose again, 8-6 to the Rangers.

    They had Griffey tunnel vision and refused to look at other possible ways to improve a struggling club.

    Meantime, the Devil Rays knocked Curt Shilling around tonite and lead the Red Sox.

    I didn't say it was a great bunt--I said that it wasn't a bad bunt. If the catcher doesn't make an off-balance SS-type throw (a play which frankly I didn't think he could possibly make), then it would have been successful.
