Ever been pickled? (Why did every drunk in the room immediately raise their hand?)
I mean pickled like in baseball terms...stuck between first and second (or worse yet between third and home because of lousy base-running) about halfway to nowhere, because you realized too late that someone on the other team had read/stole your "steal" sign, and there you sit - froze up because the grinning second baseman already has the ball. What to do...what to do???
Could try and run SB over and make em drop the ball - he aint really that big (probably just Sheeple in a Yankees' uniform...), or try the other option of getting back to FB, but the odds bite either way.
Anybody whose been in that situation or watched it play out from the cheap seats will have some idea of how shorty is feeling right now - especially with Demand playing SB, and Supply playing a very hard nosed FB.
So shorty, do you try and run SB over by shorting even more, or do you try and get back to FB even though Supply won't give an inch?
Buy AND SQUEEZE - shorty would love it if you dropped the ball for him, don't.
