I swear, sometimes this team looks like they're trying to lose. Mr. Defense out at shortstop has a pop fly go off his leg (I wasn't even sure that was possible). They have the 1-2-3 hitters coming up with runners on first and second with no outs, and they can't even move the runners up a base, let alone get them in. Frustration is setting in.

The fault on the Mr. Defense play lies squarely with Mr. Arthritis, who fucking lollygagged in from left, and still would have been in a position to catch the thing (as all incoming outfielders are supposed to do), if he hadn't have basically slowed to a walk while O-Cab was waving his hands around in panic.

At least Scioscia pinch-hit for Finley with the pigs pregnant.

Yeah, I noticed GA on that play, too, but I was guessing that he loafed because he was under the impression that OC had it. Either way, terrible lack of communication, and there's enough blam for both of them. Of course, it didn't matter because they can't hit.
