This is from your Kuwait correspondent:
I have seen this before. The A's have the green light to swing on anything, including the kitchen sink, but do not have the green to run the bases.
Are they afraid to be thrown out?
Are they unable to run that 90 feet?
Are they too proud because they know they can make it?
Whatever the reason, the real sad part is that the A's will once again make it to the playoffs without filling the one area they have so needed:
a bunt and a steal.
How much longer must I watch A's baseball and get excited about the opportunities to make it to the playoffs only to be slapped in the face by another team who can bunt and run better than we can?
How much longer must I dream of the perfect bunt to be laid by the A's, either going down the first or third base line?
We have the lumberjacks how about the termites to do the real damage over the long haul.
We need small ball in A's Town.
Chaplain says, Pray for help. The A's need it.
