Maybe all he has to do is hit two instead of one.

After the way Hercarmo pwned us twice earlier in the season, it was good to knock him out early.

Agreed, but in a game where Fister misses his spots and Span makes a costly error it may not make much of a difference.

If the mere presence of Espinosa in the lineup causes 5 guys not to hit (and I don't believe it does), we have a problem.
