BS on the basepaths


What the hell is going on with this team? Time and again, we've had bzarre plays on the basepaths. The stupid plays have been written off as the players being stupid. Watching some of these plays, though, I've seen one player after another look at Nick Leyva during the play.

Today we have this courtesy of the Trib's game account, where Marte says he was told to run. Hurdle blames Marte. Marte appears to be blaming Leyva. No matter, it looks like the Keystone Cops. See key quote:


“If Starling could’ve shown a little more patience, I think that play would’ve worked for us,” Hurdle said. “In the heat of the moment, he fired a little bit early.”


Marte said he was instructed to break when he did.

“They told me, ‘Go!’ ” he said.

Something isn't working here.
