The only way Stubbs catches that is if the seats are completely vacant. Than, maybe Stubbs can extend his arm back far enough without anything in his way. But either way, I still doubt he gets that. Nope, no Steve Bartman sighting in Cincy tonight.
That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
With the way our bats are going, this feels like a 10-0 deficit.
Poor JC. Pitching his butt off and the offense (and defense in the first) refuses to do anything for him.
I don't have any confidence now for the Reds to be able to score 2 runs.

Am I the only one furious about that play? Stubbs was probably not going to get it, yes. But you are sitting in the first row in the first home playoff game in 15 years, an opposing player hits one to you, the Reds CF is tracking back right at you - how dumb do you have to be to try to catch that ball? You see Stubbs running at you, you clear your butt out of the way and let him have a chance.

Front-row fans should be given a baseball IQ test.
