What's this? Someone promoting accountability

Jeff Bagwell is demanding accountability from the few guys who actually get on base - meaning Carlos Lee doesn't have to pay attention in this part of the team meeting.

"I expect guys to run the bases. Their job as hitters is not done after they reach first base. Their job is done when they reach home plate. That's something I'm going to be on the guys about, going from first to third, because it's going to help the hitter behind them. That's important to me. There's a certain way the Houston Astros play baseball, and I want to make sure we're playing that way."

And that sound you hear is Drayton going from six to midnight.

"You definitely don't want to disappoint Baggy. He's kind of like your dad — you don't want to do anything to disappoint him."
