“There is a long line of great players including Hall of Famers (Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays) that went 1-for-55 in the big leagues,” Epstein said Tuesday. “We almost expect young guys to come up and struggle. That is part of the growth process. It doesn’t make it any easier to go through, but it is a natural step in the player’s development.”

This game is lost. Harrell is too, too "on". He's so efficient out there that he's not even been made to work up a sweat. [ Note to self: .....remember this is all "audition".]

Have seen this Lendy show before. Now park his ass on the pine and leave him there for the rest of the year.
Not out of the inning w/32 pitches.

Poor Sveum. He has to endure "managing", watching and making sense out of all this shit.

He can claim victory with Jackson getting the hit. And he got to see why he used Camp and Russell so much.

Well at least Todd Hollingsworth's singing is "on". But......will his appeal for runs fall on deaf ears?
