    Yeah, I know Bike Mike. And its funny, I even thought about Fred Merkle but didn’t figure anybody on the forum would probably know what I was talking about.

    But still, what a tee-total complete idiotic move in the midst of a pennant race.

    Dexter singles between 1sr and 2nd, infiekd single. No play safe at 1st + 2nd. Chased the pitcher!

    Yep, that it was Rat. Dan and Tim were speculating on whether or not the second base umpire may have impacted DeJong’s concentration a bit. Hard to say. You just hope we don’t look back on that wonder “what if?”.

    Meanwhile the club is making a furious push to tie the game again.

    Like that aggressiveness of Goldy, going after the first pitch when he saw one he could put a good swing on.

    We have done everything wrong tonight, and we have the lead. That is why you always want to advance the runners. Now that we have the lead, are we going to use legitimate pitchers and get the win?

    He is better as a Pro than he was at Vanderbilt. I never thought he would make it this far.

    I just don’t get bringing in Carp to replace Edman. It’s the 8th inning with a lead. Defense is the priority!

    Now Gallegos gives up a bomb and the lead. Has it turned midnight for him? Too much sloppiness tonight to deserve a win.

    The two strengths of our team, defense and bullpen, have been atrocious tonight.

    Will have to win it with the bats.

    Seems like this guy’s name should be Joseph Corban.

    It’s not possible to be as good as he has been permanently. He’s a good pitcher but we’ve probably seen the absolute best case scenario for him in the middle of this season.

    Why is the stadium half empty? They may have sold 41k tickets but there are a lot of no shows or people left early.

    It’s hard to blame the ump. The easiest and obvious play was to go to 2B and that’s what the ump was probably anticipating. He’s got to move somewhere.

    DeJong’s focus seems off a bit defensively lately. He didn’t snare the liner earlier tonight. During the Reds series, he forced a guy at 2B on a bases loaded grounder with one out when it was obvious he didn’t have time to turn two. He could’ve easily thrown out the lead runner at the plate to prevent a run. It could be a simple matter of reminding himself before each pitch what the easiest and best play to make will be when he fields a grounder, liner, etc.

    Just pulled up game on ESPN on the computer- no TV. We just had 1st and 3rd with 1 out and now runner at 3rd and 2 outs. Review that ended up with Wong out instead of safe?

    This game is still in contention, it could go either way
