Re: The Turing Point
For me it was when Broxton put guys on 1st and 2nd with no outs. I was in the stands that day and realized we were in for a collapse. There is just no way a team with a WS championship under their belts doesn't cash in on such a crucial mistake. Before that inning started I figured all they had to do was survive with Broxton on the mound and we would eventually do what we've done all year and win it with late game heroics. When the run scored on the error I don't think anyone thought we could win that game. The bats went cold after the 1st and what are the odds both teams go from hot to cold in the 10th inning?
I've said all winter — they talk about this team winning the division — and my comment is, they won't win it because, at the end of the day, they still are the Chicago Cubs, and they will figure out a way to screw this whole thing up. - Marty Brennaman
