"It's frustrating, especially to a guy that's one of my really good friends," Skaggs said with a grimace. "We had a few smiles in that first at-bat. But I've seen that for four or five years. He just needed consistent at-bats. He's off to a really good start, so I'm happy for him. It's just frustrating for me."
"In the words of my friend, it was effectively awful," said Skaggs, who refused to say who told him that. "Not going to name names, but it perfectly describes the outing."
