[QUOTE]A-Gon knows he isn't fast or agile, he doesn't try to do things he knows his body can't produce. Once again, I know people want to see "hustle" but if Pedroia can't beat out most infield hitss, than what really is the point of A-Gon trying it
? If he pulled a hammy or hurt his foot trying to stretch out for the bag that only hurts this team having him out of the line up. Trust me I understand the value of hustle and I always dug it out in hopes I could get an infield single and I always got dirty, but not everyone plays that style of baseball.
You basically are upset because your not getting what YOU want, YOU want to see him hustle, YOU think his head is not in the game, YOU think he is terrible even though his production through out this slump is impressive considering the circumstances
. Want to talk about having your head in the game along with Beltre, who you think is somehow better because he runs a little harder, that guy took out 2 of our own players. Hustle is nice if you know what the hell is going on around you
. Adrian will not run hard when he knows there is no chance to make it
, it's just how the river flows, so get over it because it's not changing.

wow you are are really proving my points
* why try? wow. if that is the case then all ground balls are automatic outs - just head STRAIGHT back to the dugout
* everyone SHOULD play that style of baseball
* Who woudn't want to see that style of ball? Do you really think he's head is in the game after watching him last night? I am not critizing his ability to hit a baseball - for the third time, that is NOT the point
* Yes, I don't think Adrian always understands what the hell is going on around him as evidenced on how he ran the bases last night
