Re: 5/12/12 -- Nationals at Reds
When we talk about luck being a part of ERA and you are having your doubts, remember this game. Latos walking the balpark, gives up a dinger to the 8 hitter and lets the judy lead-off guy take him off the wall. Pretty much doing everything that DIPS theory would make him have a high FIP. Those two fly balls should have been two runs. The first one should have plated the runner on third and the second would have plated the runner on second after he advanced on the first one. Then a great play by Phillips saves the runs for good. LUCK.
Now get somebody up in the pen.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
