Re: NLDS Game 2 Reds vs. Philly
That was disgusting. Absolutely demoralizing. The Reds absolutely HANDED those runs to the Phillies. The first error on Phillips...I'm not sure it should've been an error as it took a horrible hop. The second one (on Rolen)...pissed me off. It was a real shame because Bronson had it rolling. 2 unearned runs that shouldn't have ever happened. Then 2 hit batters the following inning after Bronson's walk that loaded the bases. Two more gift baserunners. Bruce losing it in the towels/lights and Brandon droping it on the transfer. 2 more "gifts".
I know that Halladay no hit us....but this game hurts MUCH worse. Not only do we lose Cabrera with a oblique re-injury, but the defense simply implodes.
Btw...TBS didn't really show a decent replay, but that play at second base when Rolen went to second and they called the runner safe (when Phillips & Baker argued it)...to me he looked CLEARLY out due to his poor slide. Did anybody else have a better view?
Anyway...I'm ticked off (and I'm rarely mad) and I'm extremely upset for Bronson. He DESERVED a win there. The Reds simply handed the Phillies a win they had no right to. Atrocious.
Okay, I'm better now. I HAD to vent some. *sigh*
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
