Why all the Theriot hate? Last night's recap focused on Theriot's TOOTBLAN and I have often been frustrated by Theriot's seemingly mindless baserunning. However, the constant berating of Theriot seems misplaced. He is at best an average player; to pin the disappointment of this season on Ryan is unfair. Yes, he was thrown out, but I think the aggressiveness stems from a sense of urgency in terms of trying to score runs, even outside of smart baseball. Notably absent from the recap was the fact that Nady, Castro, and Lee failed to register a hit. Shouldn't we be critical of them?
