Leake's pitching? He's an emergency starter.
Rolen's error? Nobody's going to accuse Scott Rolen of choking, he's played in a million big games.
Reds have a home run offense. They aren't consistent hitters, except for Votto who is injured this year. So now they aren't scoring and they are falling behind. They can rectify it with a couple of long balls.
(Not bad for my 10,000th post.)
Sorry, but it would be a choke job to go up 2-0 and lose the series 3-2. It's never happened before in the NL!
Now, I'm not rooting for that and I'm not declaring the series over. I still have some faith, but it would be sad and a choke job if it were to come to fruition.
