The kid's name is Joshua Houston, and he's at 3B right now and may in fact have been there when I thought he made that sweet dig at short. JRW up 6-5, fielding top 6th.

Not that it would excuse Eaton's poor field awareness either way, but yesterday at the Cell (1:30 CDT in early August) where would the sun have been in the sky? Would it have been about where Eaton was tracking Rosales' home run ball?

On Eaton's play at the fence yesterday, Adam Rosales' shot was so clearly headed out of the ballyard that I had time to say, as the play was unfolding, "'Pull up.' [slight pause] 'Pull up.'" Crash. Effing Spunky.
