Have heard from two separate sources now that Jose Tabata’s benching was directly related to a play in which Austin Jackson dove for a fly ball, and Tabata failed to back him up as the ball rolled past Jackson and the runner got all the way to third.
Just reporting stuff as I hear it…again, I wasn’t at tonight’s game. I believe it’s team policy for the most newsworthy things to happen at games I’m not at. I’m now batting .500 on being at “Jose Tabata discipline games.”
I know a lot of people who attend the games post here as well…if anyone can describe the play in question, I’d certainly appreciate it.
