2. Our Brandon Phillips of course yesterday. Ouch!
3. Stephen Drew just now after driving in Coco Crisp to put the A's just one back of Det. If the A's lose this game and thus exit the post season, this will be singled out (not so fairly) as the reason why.
What's up with the eager rookie and two seasoned vets making these baserunning mistakes? They're amped up, sure. But they're trying to win, right? New trend or happens every year like this?
I saw all three & I'm still trying to figure it out...What surprised me is Brandon said when asked would he do it again & he said yes..."that's who I am"
Seriously Brandon?? He just couldn't own it....
