Seriously? two dribblers through the middle by the minor league callup catcher and minor league callup pitcher, and a missed pitch due to a slick mound. Do you seriously think that Cueto just mentally checked out as a very likely explanation there? Is it maybe just possible that this is a random game full of unpredictable craziness that makes us sit there for hours day after day and wonder what's going to happen? Why does it always have to be "inexcusable, mental lapse, get their heads out of their butts?" Can't it just be that sometimes things happen in this game that are unexpected, even when you do the right thing, like get an 8 and 9 hitter to hit weak grounders?
Ok, sorry for the rant, this kind of conclusion just drives me ABSOLUTELY batty.
