Nobody complained last year when Millar emulated Olivo's stance and suddenly starting hitting again...

Olivo is a career .225 hitter, and was hitless in his last 27 at-bats - I don't care if he's getting batting tips from Ted Williams' ghost, we ought to be able to get him out.

Iain, the problem isn't one player emulating another's batting stance, it would've been an 'oh well what can you do' kind of thing if Olivo had made the adjustment on his own. The problem is that Millar told him to do it, right before a game in which Olivo could use this information to batter our pitching.

As for the second bit, well, yeah, that's a problem. But we all know how it is with Wake-- some days he's got it, some days it's a struggle. Blech.


Did I unwittingly start something celestial when I chimed in slightly over a week ago and thought outload, "do you think the Yankees are about to reel off 80 in a row?" ...and I have to say that Beth was the one who wrote when the season opened (paraphrasing) "bringing back Tino Martinez worries me b/c of his history in NY..." oh well, like we all said, it's more fun if they don't totally suck...


It's all part of Millar's growing "Improve Players From The Dominican" programme - he's a true philanthropist ;-)
