From yesterday's AP game summary:

"The whole infield came to the mound, everybody was real positive telling me I was going to get out of it," Sonnanstine said of the bases-loaded, no-out jam in the sixth. "It made me believe."

We know the Tampa Bay infield isn't real accustomed to seeing pitchers work out of these situations - the D'Rays have been abused with the bases loaded more than any other team in the league. We also know the Tampa Bay infield isn't psychic, because the Tampa Bay infield is terrible, and you'd think that psychic players would position themselves better before each play. So what we're left with is that the Tampa Bay infield is either really supportive or a bunch of liars, and Andy Sonnanstine is gullible. What's that, Andy? Yes, of course I've taken good care of your place while you were on the road. No parties or candlelit dinners with your girlfriend at all. Would I lie to you?
