Prosecutor wrote: I'm really down on Nixon and Dellucci right now. It's looking like Shapiro threw his money away in signing these guys.
Prosecutor wrote: By the way, what was Joel Skinner thinking when he waved Dellucci home in the 8th inning last night? It takes one hell of a fast baserunner to score from first on a double into the left field corner, and Dellucci is not fast. Skinner waved him in on Blake's double and Dellucci was out by a mile. If Skinner holds him at 3rd the score is tied with one out and the bases loaded (after they walk Hafner with first base open).

Prosecutor wrote: It didn't take two "perfect" throws. Dellucci was out by ten feet.
Prosecutor wrote: With the score tied, one out, and your cleanup hitter due up, it was stupid to try and score Delooch from first.
Prosecutor wrote: Grady or Gutierrez could have made it, but not a 32-year-old italian guy.
Prosecutor wrote:As for being behind only Grady and Josh in terms of foot speed, that's not saying anything. So he's faster than Victor, Pronk, Michaels, Peralta, Garko, and Blake. Wow, what a burner.
NEOLeo wrote:Dellucci isn't a burner or a base stealer, but he is a good runner.
NEOLeo wrote:Off the top of my head, I would rank him behind Sizemore and Barfield in terms of foot speed in the starting lineup.
