That is just about the most horrifying thing I can imagine.  I mean, every time I think a loss can't be more painful...it is.  To blow a save in the 9th against the Braves and then lose it in the 10th as the winning run is WALKED home.

Life is full of pain.

Not one of Ayala's pitches to Jones was close to being a strike... Ayala's arm is gone bye bye...

I'm totally demoralized...that was the toughest loss I've watched since game 6 of the 1986 World Series.

I have the gift/curse of being able to compartmentalize, which is the only thing that's gonna save me from weeping spontaneously throughout the day tomorrow.

Hey - still got two more games!

Since Kenz is in Montreal, I'm guessing he watched it on MLB.tv.  

The radio announcers made it sound like a highly questionable call.

i just saw it on video....it was close for a 3-0 pitch. i mean they usaully give that one to you on a 3-0 count.....but we din't get the call.

ayala just has a dead arm right now......time for a stint on the DL.

So how much of a bribe did Ayala get to throw the game?

I just caught the highlights on Comcast.  Man, this really sucks.    Two straight games we completely wasted great efforts by our starters.

Hey, good news!  John Patterson's on the mound tonight!  That means we'll probably waste THREE straight games of great starting pitching!

How is he pitching already?  MLB and the paper lists Loaiza as the starter.
