Anyone who says "worst loss of the season" for any game going forward should be perma-banned.

I'm still disheartened.    That's the only word I can think of  ...   There's no anger, disappointment, etc ..  simply a kick in the gut.

Me, too.  I also worry about what happens next.  Will they rebound from this or take a dive?

I'd almost rather have Phillies supporters sitting nearby (tbe ones we get in the sections near TBSITH really haven't been that bad) than Ted 'n' Jane's army of militant couch potatoes.


To quote the Beatles, "What they need's a damn good whacking."

I'm glad we have Davey, personally. How we respond to this will be huge.

I was out on the deck a minute ago and the thought crossed my mind ...  Wonder how DJ is going to work this in the clubhouse this morning?    Do you let it go?   Do you mention it  ....  simply a note on the board?     It would be interesting to know.    Speaking of which, walked by the MASN "booth" in CF on the way out last night.      Noticed that Ray thumped the desk a few times during JH and his back and forth.   Anybody got a synopsis on Knight's "feelings" about the game in the post-game roundup?

Ray said you let a loss like this go immediately and don't think about it again.

If you think about it, we've had a ton of games where we've come from behind late, and a lot of games where we've held onto close leads. While this was a terrible loss, it really shouldn't shake the team's confidence and mark some change of momentum like Braves fans are hoping.

How appropriate for that game!

Didn't get one myself but the ones I saw didn't look that insubstantial (and many were, of course, immediately pressed into service)...but I guess that's what one can expect for 'free'.

Mine was certainly "used".    Hit the RF Coors $5 beer stand early (and often) in the evening.   :)

They steins clear, so you can put the glow-in-the-dark praying hands inside to save space

Were they any good, I saw a bunch of them but didn't look up close, the mantle in my trailer has an empty spot that I'm looking to fill.

On the radio, I heard Davey say he blames the loss on himself.  He had never lost a lead like that and felt he could have managed the pitching better.  Frankly, I don't think he could have done a damn thing but blaming himself and taking the loss away from his team is admirable.

After we got up 6-0 I figured the game was over and went out and got hammered, luckily I missed the ending.

...just like the entire pitching staff.
