Hanging slider. A bit too far for Stubbs to have a chance.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
There is no way Stubbs can get that, unless he climbs the wall.
Like game 1, what the Phillies offense does now does not matter as long as the Reds bats are dormant. 1-0, 2-0 or 15-0 - it doesn't matter.
This game is still within reach, but only if the offense wakes up.
When did Bartman move to Cincinnati?
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
~ Mark Twain
When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
This will not be reversed.
Stubbs had a pretty small chance on it....but a fantastic effort.
Baseball is like church. Many attend, few understand
Official HR, as expected
Great effort by Stubbs.
5 IP, 1 ER and he's going to take the loss. Heck of an effort by Cueto tonight. He really showed me something.
This place use to be fun
