Possibly the nine worst words you could hear in a close game:

"Bases loaded, two out, and here comes Willie Bloomquist!"

Relatively warm bat or not these days, that's just something you just don't want to hear with the game on the line.

Bloomquist predictably tapped the ball to second for the easy out, the score remaining 4-4. The Angels broke it open in the eighth and won going away, 9-4.

Uber-scrubs like Bloomquist should be relegated to what they do best: pinch running or serving as a ninth inning defensive replacement. And here comes Willie Bloomquist, to pinch run sounds 100 times better.
