wow – there goes Mo. In a big way.
I don’t know what the solution to this is, but it has to be something that doesn’t include Conrad, right? He has done very little at the plate and a whole lot of pooping in the field. Must stop. I am sure he is likable, but so is Steve. And I do not want Steve playing second base. Although at this point, it might be a better option.
What makes it so awful is that Brooks is a marginal player already. This is almost definitely the end of his major league career. It’s not like when Uggla got the yips in the all star game. This will be his baseball story for his entire life: clutch heroics from a Hollywood script during the regular season, and then the Coen Brothers took over the writing for the playoffs.
Hell, I think I’m about to write him a fan letter of support or something. I honestly feel *almost* as bad for Conrad as I do about the game being lost.
