Thanks Curt but I just default to KK getting the loss in every game he pitches. Sometime I would like a tutorial on which pitcher gets the W and the L or neither. Anybody got a good link? Bub, how tall is your coffee table? Bub?
I feel for McLouth cause clearly he’s hurt and I hate that. However, everytime they show the replay it looks like Heyward woulda had that ball. I love McLouth bustin it to get there but the kid had it. Not sure what coulda shoulda happened and it doesn’t matter cause it didn’t.
That folks is about the worst way to lose a game. That’s 4 losses out of the last 6. I see a bad moon arising.
And watching that play now 400 more times is that it’s McLouth’s ball. Heyward ran him over. The center fielder has the play if he can make it andit was in his glove, or thereabouts, before he got dump trucked by Heyward.
Bad, bad loss. Time for Peter to get skipped a few times in the rotation.
I haven’t seen a team lose on an inside the park home run since I played little league. Thanks Pete. McOut probably could have avoided his headache and mine had Moylan not thrown a mid 80s pitch down the middle of the plate. It’s probably a situation where Bobby will continue to use him in clutch situations because of Pete’s success in past years. It’s the same logic that keeps Chipper batting 3rd, McOut starting in CF (barring injury), and Omar on the bench. Tough loss.
It looked like McLouth never called him off, which is odd given they almost ran into each other earlier in the game. As if McLouth thought he had worked something out with Heyward about balls in the gap. Phils got rained out so just down a half game for now.
Leah, congrats to you sister’s brother in law. That’s awesome.
Riding on minimal sleep and heading out West. DOB’s postgame quotes need some editing on the profanity. He must be sleep deprived, too. Kind of disappointed he didn’t ask McOut about being 0-15 with runners in scoring position and leaving 6 on base last night. I don’t buy The Perfect Storm flyball theory. They make it sound like it was an unavoidable disaster. It wasn’t. Also, hit balls with guys on and that play doesn’t cost them the game. Now McOut will be coddled even more than he already is.
I also don’t buy that no one had time to call it. If you think you can catch it and you play CF you scream “I got it.” McOut is a moron. He can’t throw home. He can’t hit. He bunts with the pitcher hitting behind him, and he can’t call a guy off a ball. If you can’t run and say “I got it at the same time”, then my guess is we might see those two collide again. Reading those postgame quotes grinds my gears even more than the result of the game. Stop feeling sorry for yourselves. They scored 1 run against the D’Backs. Pathetic. Bobby seemed more focused on The Perfect Storm fly ball theory. Bobby, it was really more like an episode of when dumb athletes collide. Splitting with the D’Backs is embarrassing, and they still have to win one to accomplish that. The Twins and Rays are going to punish the Braves.
Sorry to be a grouch, but reading that garbage on the postgame quotes and thinking about who we’re about to play is disturbing. I get chills thinking about the way we’re pitching and hitting and the 2 lineups and pitching staffs we’re about to see. I will be thrilled if go 2-4 in those 2 series.
