    Pitching away from the shift yet again. So damn frustrating, you would think that these stat bozos would figure that part out by now.

    The problem with always pitching to the shift is that you telegraph where the ball will be ... And that gives hitters with power the opportunity to smack one really far .

    Gonna take a guess for the late inning plan here. Harris stays in for Canha, then Sipp for Reddick, then Fields for the rest of the 8th. Then Neshek for the 9th.

    I'd like to think the answer is an easy "yes", but I wonder if it's a given that we'd sell out all playoff games this year. Friday night, enormous game in the last 2 weeks of a pennant chase, and only 25k are showing up.

    Really don't like Neshek pitching against Reddick.
