    They had their chances. What is it about Latos? That’s 2 starts in a row he has gotten us, and he came in coming off of two brutal starts. Glad JJ didn’t get the loss. Once again, losing the first game of the series. Must stop doing that. Particularly against the Padres, and especially on a night where you could have gained on everyone.

    Would it have been crazy for Bobby to put Gorecki in to pinch run for GA in the 9th? No sarcasm. I honestly don’t know. Sad sad loss.

    Curt Says:

    Gorecki was already running for McCann, but it seems that a pitcher or someone else could have been in running for him. Given that Gorecki was in, you had your replacement outfielder in the game.

    Leah Says:

    I guess I’m confused. I thought that happened in the next inning. Um…Chipper? Any thoughts?

    Chris in Boston Says:

    Of the pitchers, it’s JJ who’s called on to be the pinchrunner. I’m sure if he had not been pitching, he would have been running for Anderson. As it was, the others guys are probably as slow as Anderson and not worth bringing in.

    Are Chipper and Lowe together making 25% of the payroll? Good thing they’re in the last year of their contracts. :(

    Sky. Is. Falling.

    Taylor -The Man Says:

    The Schafer surgery doesn’t scare me very much. I am actually a grad student getting my DPT degree, and I feel like this surgery will be pretty mild compared to what others have gone through and been successful. Surgery might have been avoided if maybe he didnt try to gut it out and gotten proper attention earlier.

    Chris in Boston Says:

    Right, Taylor. It really doesn’t seem like that big a deal. Actually, the fact that he needs surgery makes me feel better about his season. The kid was really hurt; his problems didn’t stem from a lack of talent or so much from an insufficient amount of time in the minors. He may not be Grady Sizemore, but he’s going to be good player.

    Steve is always right. He is never wrong. I will never doubt him again…ever! Huddy, where are you?

    Leah Says:

    Oh…and I hate baseball. And let’s hear more chatter about next year. I’m starting to enjoy it.

  11. 36
    Bubdylan Says:

    Next year, no Bobby Cox. I can feel it. “It’s his job as long as he wants it” is Wrenspeak for “… uh, Bobby, I’ve decied you don’t want to manage anymore.”

    Can you FEEL IT??

    Can you?

    Me, either.

    Anne Says:

    Perhaps now is an inappropriate time to bring up…I was always a postseason hope meter 3. Ya lemmings!

    Bubdylan Says:

    Anne, that’s no brag. Three? Why so high?

    Anne Says:

    Touche, Bub. Toosh…freaking…shay. :-(

    Bubdylan Says:

    This is like watching Old Yeller… if Old Yeller had been shot in the knee caps.

  16. 41
    Leah Says:

    Again…thanks for the laugh Bub. I turned it off in the 8th. I’m cutting coupons in complete silence which is better than baseball tonight.

  17. 42
    Curt Says:

    Given that I am the eternal pessimist, I truly believe our season ended tonight.

  18. 43
    Bubdylan Says:

    Curt, the season ending tonight would be eternal optimism.

    We have to watch this sh*t another month.

  19. 44
    Steve Says:

    Great line, Bub. Yeah, people – my faith is absolutely shaken at this point. I realize that people have been saying the season is over since back in May, but this really feels like the team is careening off the tracks (although, as I write this, in the back of my head I’m thinking – but if we win Thursday and then sweep the Phillies, we’re back in the thick of this thing!). But, I’m not feeling it too strongly right now. Chipper having fallen off the face of the earth and Prado having come back to earth and no McLouth – %!#!@#!&^!#@!

    Leah Says:

    …and McCann looking like he can’t find his glasses so he has a snowball in hell’s chance of finding the ball.

    Leah Says:

    Deafening silence on the comment feed…

    *only the sound of thumb sucking while curled up in the fetal position*

    Bubdylan Says:

    The cold wind blows.
    The dark cloud covers the moon.
    The buzzard takes flight.
    The Bobby Cox is pacing, pacing, pacing…

    Will Says:

    Oh, ye of little faith.
    It is always darkest before the dawn.
    A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.
    An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
    some other stuff…

    9-1 stretch…I CAN FEEL IT!!!

    anyone seen my pill bottle…i cant seem to find it
