What?  Both those players absolutely suck. 
Unquestionably so.  But if you watched the second game in the Giants-Braves series you would have seen Farnsworth get the win with two scoreless innings (however horrible they were) and Ankiel hit an absolute monster of a home run to break the tie and give the Braves the lead in the top of the eleventh (albeit on a pitch in the dead center of the plate).  The postseason is short enough that fluky things like that really do matter.

Wow, I just saw the "Reds commit four errors" video. What a total embarrassment. I can't imagine how they feel, knowing they torched Oswalt for a 4-run lead and then blew it all away by dropping the ball, missing catches, and losing grounders.

Ankiel and Farnsworth won a playoff game. Trade succeeded. QED.

Why ISN'T there a definition for a check-swing?  That makes no sense.

Because it isn't the rule. There is a definition for a strike, and it is a judgement call by the umpire.

Ankiel crushed that ball. (Still amazes me that he is allowed to play when he admitted the use of HGH.)

Morning reflections:

1) I hate umpires. They freaked up both games last night. There's no sugar coating it.

2) I have never seen a team give up mid-game worse than the Reds did. Not even the Nationals!

The last time I saw anything like the series of Reds giveaways was the Tiger pitchers melting down with errors in the series against the Cards.

(Of course, the Cubs collapse after the Bartman incident was pretty pathetic.)

Tampa Bay deserves to get swept the heck out of the playoffs, and they were the AL team I was rooting for. Two hits through six innings so far. Their offense is just pathetic. And still talk about the king of the kings of offense, Pena, coming to DC. Yeah, no thanks.

Dear Mike Rizzo. Going 1 for the playoffs does not earn Pena a contract from the Nats.

Too late, I can smell the toner in the laser printing, outputting the contract proposal.   :?

However, Crawford's play should.
