An interview with Dale Sveum
Manager discusses challenges after losing first two games
Do you plan on any lineup changes or any batting order changes for tomorrow?DALE SVEUM: No. We'll go with our left handed lineup against Moyer. Rickie will be in there and Billy will be in there, same spots. The offense obviously has been struggling the last two games. What kind of approach is it going to take against Moyer? DALE SVEUM: Well, I think it's evident what you have to do against Moyer -- you've got to work the middle of the field. You can't try and pull him, simple as that. But obviously that's easier said than done sometimes. How do you talk to these guys about taking this as one game instead of looking it as a whole of three? DALE SVEUM: Well, I think it's just -- they know the message. We were just going through that before the playoffs started. That's what I emphasized when I first got here and especially that last week of the season when we were -- I think we were three games back in the loss column going into the last seven or eight games of the season. It's one game at a time. You can't think of anything else except the game at hand that day, and obviously we're in that spot right now.
