    I’m glad to see that Hurdle is all about accountability! John Russel talked about it, but never managed to implement it.

    Managed..the key word. Something JR didn’t do.

    Opposing teams are putting 7 guys on the right side of the field and Pedro is still trying to pull pitches 8 inches off the plate. Sounds like a recipe for a .150 batting average.
