    The team ran into bad luck at the worst time. They also played the last few weeks as if they just needed to show up to the park and win. That does reflect on the manager and staff to a degree.

    I like Dusty, but it is hard to ignore 1-10.

    Side note: I don't believe in bean ball, but they just hit the heart of the team after laying a GS on the Reds. Time for a Giant to take one in the ribs.

    An overwhelming, vast majority of the blame goes on these players. Period.
    A team is a reflection of their manager agreed? 1 and 10 in clinching games.
    If you can't be a good example... then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...

    Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels...

    I personally would've rather seen Frazier in the spot over Heisey, but I don't know if it would've mattered.

    Yep. There's good and bad to it. Unfortunately, we just saw the bad.

    It's like a co-worker (who happens to be a Giants fan) says, Dusty can get you to the post-season but he rarely gets you any further.

    This will go down as one of the greatest meltdowns in NL playoff history.

    Phillips lines a double to right center. 6-2 Giants.

    Reds are definitely looking like they'll make history either way. If they lose, first team ever after going up 2-0. If they win, I'm sure it will be an improbable comeback by some measure that will make history.

    Two runs in on the Phillips double. Not dead yet.

    are we good again?
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Phillips drives in two runs and something in my brain just kickstarted into some kind of bipolar disorder.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
