Yup. Pitchers striking out and bunting is so fun to watch. %-6

Every pitcher on the cardinals starting staff is a better hitter than Jose vidro, why should he play half a game?

21 Bradley, Milton TEX
15 Floyd, Cliff TB
48 Hafner, Travis* CLE
17 Huff, Aubrey BAL
16 Kubel, Jason MIN
55 Matsui, Hideki* NYY
34 Ortiz, David* BOS
3 Sheffield, Gary DET
24 Stairs, Matt TOR
35 Thomas, Frank* Oak
25 Thome, Jim ChiWS
3 Vidro, Jose SEA

how many old/washed up/one dimensional players do you see?

yeah, I want to see no strategy at all in a baseball game and on top of it see Jose Video hit...yay

and on a side note, why not a designated runner? I dont like seeing Yadier Molina run the bases, thats BORING, why should I see him run the bases slowly and without skill and just get thrown out? Why not get a talented track star who can run the bases for him? It would make the game much more exciting.
