Scene opens with Mike Scioscia starring out at his collection of mighty mites and calmly addressing the team. "Okay, we are turning the page here boys. Time to lace up the cleats and get to work. We got Danny on the bump and that gives us a shot at winning. We need a full team effort today, cause we've got a tough lefty to face. I know it's a day game in Arlington but the baseball gods have blessed us with a beautiful day to go out and get ourselves back on the winning track. I can't emphasize this enough, a win today is key to our hopes of being the team we think we can be. Now get out there and give it all you got."
"Jeff, a moment, (pause) if you don't get at least two hits today so help me I will beat you with your bat till you think your back in Kindergarten. Now go get 'em kid!"
(at least that is how I envision the pregame for today going...)
