Joe Morgan: Well, he [David Eckstein] is hitting .182 and Encarnacion is not hitting well either, but you know that these guys are going to hit. I know definitely that Eckstein's gonna get on base 'cause he'll find a way to get on base and Pujols, although he's 0 for 7 in this series, he will get hot again.
What happened to David Eckstein's magical ability to find a way to get on base in 2003, when he OBPed .325? Or 2004, the following year, when he willed himself onto the basepaths 33.9 percent of the time? I'll tell you who really finds a way to get on base: a dude like Brian Giles.
