Yep, it was against us...and luckily I missed that one

That's what I'm talking about. I love traditional baseball. I love the hit and run and the bunt just as much as the long ball. I love the gamesmanship. That's why I don't complain when a guy steps out of the batter's box or throws over to first. It only makes the game drag if you let it. Games only average to be about 20 minutes longer than they were 50 years ago.

I also realize I could have just copied and pasted that trite quote from Crash Davis, but...I'm too cool for that.
