Ok, so that really stung. I guess we learned that Matt isn't ready for these big games. At least not this year. I love the dude, but that was devastating. And Millar - what a disappointment today. That was horrible base running. I understand why Tito went with him (as you know, his record against Contreras is pretty good, but I am guessing that this was BEFORE he found his 2 seam fastball action that put us away this afternoon), but way to give a gift out to the White Sox, Kevin. Honestly, I don't know if Olerud would have fared better. Contreras was just so damn impressive today. At least the game is over and we've got stronger starters going in the games ahead.
It is only one game, and so long as mlb doesn't institute the gap penalty during the '05 playoffs, we can just shake it off and look forward to tomorrow. Also, we should have better luck in the evening slot. I am convinced that these weird 4:00 starts doom us.
And why am I torturing myself with Buck and McCarver right now? Blah blah blah, A-Rod for MVP, blah blah blah. (Mrs. Joey - are you throwing bricks at your TV tonight? Hopefully, you aren't torturing yourself with the Yankee game).
