Rangers vs. Rays Update

Did I just see that?

With a man on first and nobody out in the 6th inning, losing 8-0, Ron Washington just had his #3 hitter, 2010 AL MVP Josh Hamilton sacrifice bunt.

I... can't even put into words how bad baseball that is. That's not smallball, that's stupidball. They only had 12 outs left to make up 8 runs - and Josh Hamilton gives them a better chance than anyone with the possible exception of Mike Napoli to get them back with a single swing. And he wasted that out to get a guy to second base?

Predictably, the Rangers now only have 9 outs to make up 8 runs.

I'm officially changing my prediction. Rays in three.
