To wit, the game Wednesday night when Votto, Phillips and Bruce struck out in the bottom of the fifth. It was absolutely a big point in the game, and I can understand why it received emphasis at that time.
However Thom brought it up multiple times in the 6th inning, both before and after Heisey's home run. Brought it up again when Votto came up in the 7th. Again when Bruce came up in the 8th. THen again when it went to extras, and again when they came up in the 10th. If I remember correctly, he also brought it up in the post game.
Was it a big moment? Absolutely. But once Heisey homered, the importance went way down. Theoretically you could say if they had scored in the fifth & Heisey homered, the Reds win in 9 innings, but going back and assuming everything follows the exact same way for over half the game is just silly.
