On the Ross hit
Neither Pete Mackanin nor Bronson Arroyo had any problem with the Mike Cameron-David Ross collision.
“I looked like to me on replay that (Ross) stood right in front of the base path,” Mackanin said. “Base-runner has no other choice. I thought it was a clean. . . You can choose to go around a guy or slide, but when a guy’s blocking the plate, you're taught to knock him over.”
Arroyo saw it the same way: “(Ross) was way up the line. He was in a place he shouldn't have been.”
