The good- Sitting in Section 111 in the 5th row.
The bad - Hotter than hell and muggy to boot.
The ugly - everything else. To put it in perspective, I left this game early (after the 7th). I never (NEVER) leave a game early and I was forced to leave this one by my disgust. Fortunately, my girlfriend and I laughed on the way home as we heard that the Reds would not be staging the mother of all comebacks in the 9th.
I cannot say what I felt like at this game without uttering a string of expletives that would make JD rather perturbed at me. But a few questions leap out at me, many of which I'm betting came out in the game thread.
- Why in God's name did Narron leave the Lizard in to get his head caved in like that?
- What the hell happened to the Reds pitching staff? The newly acquired Franklin pitched well at times, and lousy at others. Coffey pitched just like Coffey always has...wildly inconsistent.
- Why did we get Franklin and the freaking D-Backs get Livan? Are we not good enough to get Livan?
- Why is it that the Reds ALWAYS seem to choke games like this? (Yeah, I went to the one game playoff in 99. Yeah, I'm still bitter.)
Time to up the meds.
