Gonzalez is the one that freaked up this game. He ruined the momentum by nibbling. I hate wussy ass pitchers that are afraid to throw strikes.

I don't want to see Gio do anything else between now and Spring Training outside of working on controlling his pitches.  No parties, no nothing.  His lack of control was the catalyst for the comeback.

Makes me glad that Drew Storen has a roommate. Wouldn't want him to have been alone, but he can probably take this in stride.

Also he probably needs to delete his twitter for a bit, he's getting some freaking awful death threats from cowards.

That's really f'd up.  I'd like to put these giant wusses in a room w/Drew Storen and make them say this to his face......unbelievable.

Unbelievable. What the hell is wrong with people. I've been on the bad end of some losses as a fan, and I never thought about sending a death threat to someone. I don't get that at all.

I'll bet Obama goes down just like Washington because he doesn't use our(this country's) best people to win.

We got Trump weighing in now.

Which is worse:  our loss or the Reds getting swept in three home games to lose their series after dominating the Giants in the first two games?  The Reds never lost three straight at home all season and they had the second-best record in baseball.

Since I'm not a Reds fan I'd say ours was infinitely worse.

It would be unfair because it would be two against one since Storen's father would insist on being in the room to lend a helping hand.  :?

All jokes aside, people that do this type of crap are freaking losers. Seeing a couple of punks abuse and threaten some innocent cardinals fans pissed me off. To threaten Storen for his epic meltdown is inexcusable. That just goes to show that it's dumb to generalize about fanbases. All fan bases have morons.

don't folks know that twitter can be traced?  I'm pretty sure using the internet to send death threats is a federal offense. Please FBI / NSA, since you monitor everything, go primitive on some of these jackasses.  You'd get better pub than USADA.

Deaths threats over a baseball game? I am even more behind Drew than I already was when I woke up this morning (I think being pissed last night was pretty natural).

I was pissed for like five minutes and I was at the game and had a first-hand look. I even had a Cardinals fan right next to me.

No one on the planet is more emotionally invested in this team than me but I'm over it less than 24 hours later. Life goes on.

Here's a trick. Don't read the papers or listen to media coverage. I'm not even talking about it, except on this board. I'm in complete denial.

Only one team wins the WS, that means that 29 don't.  The fact that we got this far is amazing and not something to take for granted.  Only the most mentally tough can make it through and now we have that toughness.  The fact that we as fans have become this emotionally invested in this team means that this team is worth getting invested in.  Great season, great fans, go nats.  Natitude never sleeps.
