If you are a player, do you want to lose that way?

For me, I have to question whether the guys in that locker room were happy with a squeeze call.  Lefty at the plate, he does not bunt conventionally(he slashes his bunts hard), 2-0 count, tie game top of the 9th, season on the line, the guy lined out to deep center last at bat, and got the game winning hit the night before.  That tells me my manager has to come up with a gimmick for us to win.  The odds are much better to let him swing away, than go for the squeeze.  

I also question Willits in right, and why Oliver didn;t come in to face the lefties ... but those are typical Scioscia moves ... and not as frustrating as the squeeze.

Overall, an all around failure by the whole team & staff.  Although the starters did do an amazing job considering the defense and offense failures every inning.
