I'm not overlooking it. Just sitting back/going back and looking at these three games and seeing where the majority of the blame lies. First off - losing your ace Cueto hurt us big time. IMO, we'd be in the NL Championship came if that hadn't occurred.
Secondly - it's with the players and their own lack of execution.... they committed errors in very critical situations that allowed SF to capitalize... they had countless opportunities with RISP and failed.... and a certain pitcher has to learn to keep his cool, and not allow his emotions to take him out of a game. I"m gonna start to call Mat Zambrano.
