Man, Joey is just trying to do too much. I'd probably be the same way.


And I am so sick of hearing about this *dynasty* we are witnessing from The Phillies. People said The A's were a dynasty in 1990 and they were DONE by 1991. We'll see.

Rolen with a basehit! Whoa!

Like game 1, what the Phillies offense does now does not matter as long as the Reds bats are dormant. 1-0, 2-0 or 15-0 - it doesn't matter.

This game is still within reach, but only if the offense wakes up.

Yep..

We gotta score some runs to win this one boys and girls....

Oxilon
10-10-2010, 09:37 PM
The only way Stubbs catches that is if the seats are completely vacant. Than, maybe Stubbs can extend his arm back far enough without anything in his way. But either way, I still doubt he gets that. Nope, no Steve Bartman sighting in Cincy tonight.

The Operator
10-10-2010, 09:37 PM
With the way our bats are going, this feels like a 10-0 deficit.

Poor JC. Pitching his butt off and the offense (and defense in the first) refuses to do anything for him.

There is no way Stubbs can get that, unless he climbs the wall.

He did, and while it's hard to be definitive, he seemed to be under it, over the wall when BartmanII reached for it with his glove. It was over the wall, so no interference, but Stubbs had a chance if the idiot didn't try to catch it.

Am I the only one furious about that play? Stubbs was probably not going to get it, yes. But you are sitting in the first row in the first home playoff game in 15 years, an opposing player hits one to you, the Reds CF is tracking back right at you - how dumb do you have to be to try to catch that ball? You see Stubbs running at you, you clear your butt out of the way and let him have a chance.

Also if waving white towels is suppose to help your team, then wouldn't moving out of the way and letting Stubbs try the miraculous be common sense? I doubt he gets it, but a GROWN MAN with a GLOVE at the BALLPARK prevented his attempt
