"I talked to an advance scout that told me if Joey Votto and Albert Pujols were on the same team he'd advise his team to do the unthinkable...pitch around Votto to get to Pujols." - Buster Olney, ESPN
The whole Stubbs situation is why Dusty would love it if he could hit leadoff. This team would be so much better if he could.
Marshall on to wrap this one up
It's kinda nice to have a big lead, seems like everything has been a close game this year.
Grrr ... I was hoping Joey would get to hit again tonight.
I never heard of hitters not wanting guys to steal until about 10 years ago. I'd like to believe Votto would have that tunnel vision on the pitcher and not let Stubbs bother him.
Bruce finally ran into a double.....but with 1st and 3rd and no outs he swings at a 1-1 pitch at his shoulder and then takes a strike 3 fastball straight down the middle???
Who will be in the OF tomorrow? Dusty will have Luddy in LF against Moyer. I bet Heisey with his 3 RBI, 2 runs, 2 hits and 3 times on base gets the sit.
Rondo is taking over. Terrible game 7 but the Celtics are gonna win.
Where would we be without this bullpen.
