Questions That Shouldn't Need Answers

Q: How do you lose a close game?

A: You let Craig Hansen try to protect a one-run lead!

You may have suspected this was true, but John Russell conveniently just verified it for you. Suspicion confirmed!

Russell does get style points for using four consecutive pinch hitters in the ninth, then pinch running the last one after he got on base. Hey, if you've got a 40-man roster, you may as well use it, right?
