After DeRosa's double play, the crowd lost it's life and you could kind of feel that the game was over. Sucked.

Sorry Philbert.
And I too am sorry for your team NSW...if things go as they have so far.

Mark DeRosa's at bat was not a bad one. To get mad at him is ridiculous...since all year he has been great. Aramis Ramirez also hit with 2 men on 2 times tonight too and did nothing. So, the blame game? Not worth the effort. Maybe Zambrano should have pitched another inning in the first game? Ted Lilly sucked...but maybe he was tired from having to pitch on 3 days rest to get here. Rich Hill...first playoff outing. Soriano is still in pain, but he didn't do anything in the clutch. NO ONE DID! So see, blame game...not worth it


It was however, typical of what we did this series. Or didn't do anyway. Our team could not get the big hit when we needed it. Arizona did...like they have all year.

But dang is Colorado hot or what?!?

Normally I'm more than anything disappointed by the Phillies, but I'm angry over this team. What a pathetic showing from their offense. Not only did they lack heart in this series, they were flat out stupid. Swinging at bad pitches. Watching good ones go by. Poor fielding. Poor pitch location. Terrible managing. Just a horrible showing.

At least this year the city has some sense and didn't let a massive crowd loiter outside the ballpark in the streets for the entire game.

I actually got bitched at by one of my friends for daring not to root for the Cub and I was *gasp* "on the north side."

I don't think the Cub didn't play with heart, as someone else mentioned. I think they were just exposed as the one dimensional team they are. I agree with you Phil, the blame game is useless.

The Rockies are definitely intriguing.. . .and they do have the best name for a fan section.
I'm surprised by Cleveland too.

I'm not surprised by Cleveland. They have the best 1-2 pitching punch in the post-season, and their middle relief is outstanding. Their main weakness, their closer, has not been exposed as of yet. Westbrook pitches today. If he goes out and pitches a gem, THAT will surprise me.

Sometimes a team gets shut down, despite "heart". I agree with WHA and Philbert that it was not a heart issue.

Rockies are the story of the post-season. And, of course, the viewing public will respond by not watching AZ/Colorado. I'm really intrigued by that match-up, however.

WHA, I keep forgetting to ask my coworkers.....what's the story with the singluar titles?...the Sock, the Cub, etc? I'd never heard that until you posted it, and now I hear others refer to them that way as well.

Ryan Howard, fucking swing, jesus christ.
Why would someone try to hit a 3-1 ball if the pitcher has been wild all night, and the bases were all loaded BECAUSE he walked those 3 guys to their bases.

How is he not a dumbass?

I can't for the life of me understand why you'd want a good hitter to take a 3-1 pitch with the bases loaded. We simply disagree on this one. Regardless, sucked that he grounded into a DP.

what kind of pitch was it? Maybe he was fooled? I dunno...But that's how it went all series for everyone. And all it took for the D-backs was one mistake pitch and BOOM...homerun.

I'm just as disappointed as you are tps, but I think what really happened was the better team won.

Oh, and you could hear that it sucked the life out of the crown on the radio...on which I was listening.

Only about six months until opening day!

I'd like to see a Rockies/Indians world series.
