Dammit!

OnMyOwn 09-20-2013 10:26 PM

Yea...it'd be nice to have a closer nowadays

Limp into the WC game

DaBadGuy7 09-20-2013 10:26 PM

Game, Votto home run.

87and71 09-20-2013 10:28 PM

This team simply can't handle pressure. It's unreal. This must be what Red Sox fans felt like for all those years lol.

Big McLargehuge 09-20-2013 10:28 PM

Bannister is really ****ing us over with his pitching decisions.

Wilson available and you go to Kyle ***ing Farnsworth in the 10th?

Ugh.

As a Red Sox fan, this is exactly what it felt like. As a baseball fan, ive been rooting hard for Pittsburgh all year and this just sucks.

A red better get plunked tomorrow

mikelvl 09-20-2013 10:32 PM

Kyle Farnsworth equals wave the white towel, disgusting.

Mondello 09-20-2013 10:33 PM

...and there are idiots trying to woo after an inning like that. Why doesn't that surprise me.

Thank God I had to work late and didn't make the game.

Mondello 09-20-2013 10:35 PM

Three K's by Chapman in the bottom of the 10th. Bank on it.

Ugene Malkin 09-20-2013 10:35 PM

When the games matter, really matter, pull out the worst set of plays to lose it.

DaBadGuy7 09-20-2013 10:42 PM

If there is any sense of good irony, McCutchen takes Chapman deep out of the park but that's not likely

Big McLargehuge 09-20-2013 10:46 PM

There isn't enough whiskey in the world to drown the sorrow of this loss.

Ugene Malkin 09-20-2013 10:47 PM

I'm not liking how they're finishing off the season.

They're now tied with the reds.

sniugneP 09-20-2013 10:47 PM

Jordy's error cost us big time.

mpp9 09-20-2013 10:48 PM

I blame Dan Bylsma

As of right now that was the biggest play of the year. An easy grounder and a slow runner...rushed throw gets airmailed.

Melancon isn't instilling a lot of confidence in me right now...but he got his 3 outs without harm, it's the defense that blew the lead.


The worst thing is...if Hurdle isn't thrown out I don't think Mercer is there. He already talked to Liriano, so that decision was already made...but Clint loves his defensive replacements late in the game. How many times does Mercer start the 9th inning at short with Barmes on the bench? Almost never.

DaBadGuy7 09-20-2013 10:50 PM

Pressure mounts, team will make the playoffs, but looking doubtful they win that Wild Card game if it's a tight game late. Either a fanastic outing by whoever is pitching or a offensive explosion like yesterday will get the job done.

td_ice 09-20-2013 10:51 PM

uuughhhh......gutted.

Big McLargehuge 09-20-2013 10:52 PM

Salt on the wound, I was at a place that the bar was filled with Red's fans. In the freakin' North Hills.

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Pissed me off.

vodeni 09-20-2013 10:58 PM

the pathetic response to hitting Cutch again is one of the biggest mysteries in sport for me. If I were them I throw 100 mph straight to Baker's head. Unbeleivable

Yep. My buddy, who was at the game, texted me that exact thing shortly after it happened.
