Another day, another (hopefully) nine innings

Juan Pierre is taking bunting practice on the field, with Rob Flippo pitching tohim. Chin-lung Hu is down there too, standing between the mound and first base and using his bat to try to stop the balls JP is hitting so no one will have to walk very far to pick them all up later. … Now Hu is getting into the cage himself, also to bunt. … No news so far, but I’m guessing it’s DeWitt back up and Nomar to the DL, based on what it sounded like last night. Padilla covering again tonight.
