Poopy Pitchers

Yesterday we discussed Fergie and urine. Today we deal with number two...Chipotle Bob just brought this piece from the Chicago Sun-Times to my attention:

"Cubs manager Dusty Baker vowed before Thursday's series finale in Philadelphia that Wednesday night's embarrassing 4-3 loss won't be forgotten.

After pitchers Jerome Williams, Glendon Rusch and Mike Remlinger all failed to cover first base, Baker said he and pitching coach Larry Rothschild will be certain to emphasize those shortcomings, among others, to their players.

'Somebody is going to have to pay,' Baker said. 'Somebody is in trouble. It was like doo-doo on the mound or something.'"

Well said, Dusty Bottoms. Doo-doo on the mound.

the really astounding part of this is that the pitcher covering first base has to be the most over-practiced part of the game.

every team i've ever been on, spends hours on this the first couple practices of the season-- it must be in the "coach's guide to tricking your fat pitchers into running a lot (forward by david wells)"

And still they're doo-doo on the mound...go figure.

How bout throwing to first? Anyone see Ramon Ortiz throw the ball away going to first THREE times in the same game, with Juan Pierre on first every time? Unreal!
