    Quote from Astro: “What do you think (some think bush league, some think pretty smart)? Definitely not as bad as A-Rod yelling I got it on a pop-up. 3B should have know the situation and gotten a double play. When coaching I always told player know the situation and what you are going to do if the ball is hit to you. mlb.com/cut4/lorenzo-cain-s-tr…llies-with-a-finger-point ” great play by cain!
