Lancaster had a team meeting

Eric Smith wrote that Lancaster had a team meeting before last night's game where Lance McCullers and Kyle Smith struck everybody out. Some interesting quotes:

Manager Rodney Linares:
Some guys spoke up and said some things...we can't have distractions on the team. It wasn't like somebody wanted to kill somebody...Maybe the guy next to you went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts...I wouldn't want to hear somebody laughing if that happened.

Dan Gulbransen:
We could have a better environment around here. The work ethic is there but the attitude and concentration can be improved. 

The JetHawks came into last night's game having lost three in a row (outscored 24-10) and five of their last six, which isn't the end of the world. These two comments say a lot...
