Get Shiddy Wiff It

Blame of the Game:
Chone Figgins

Leading 3-1 with the leadoff runner on in the top of the 6th inning, Figgins threw what was a double play grounder out to Right Field. Two runs eventtually score, Escobar's pitch count goes throught he roof and Shields is forced to pitch for the 3rd time in 3 games and gives up a squibber of a run.

Back to 5.5 games behind Texas because of our allegedly versatile lousy everyday fielder, who has now become an OFF-base machine, specializing in popups, weak groundouts and lazy flyballs. Bench Chone for a week and fire Mickey Hatcher.
