Oh BFD.  They're explaining what made them think they could come back.  So what?  What were they supposed to do, just accept a 0-6 deficit and roll over?  It's not like they're saying, "Hah, that Storen is a choking mother freaker.  Might as well go hang himself."

Sometimes I can't get over how sensy the people here are. :hang:

"sanity"  :clap:

Is the crotch grab real?

Probably. That's what pissed off Ozzie Guillen. Harper held up his bat at him mimicking his ****. Someone else does that to the Nats and people are flipping the freak out over how classless it is.

I've got to agree factoring one thing in. Should they have shut up? No. Because those guys have to face the media, answer them, and are asked the questions a million times. They had to give some answer. I think putting it off to inexperience, the very definition meaning we gained it this year and they acknowledge it won't be the factor it was next year, was the best answer they could give. Jesus, they defiled our corpse on Friday, and face a thousand reporters every day. I think in that light their answers were fine.

Holliday trying to kill Scutaro, on the other hand, wasn't.

Yeah, pretty sure there's a "Send Bryce down till he grows up" thread that has about 1000 responses on this board.

You're constantly accusing the fans on this forum of being incapable of seeing the flaws in their own players. It's tiresome and about a 1000 miles away from being accurate.

I don't condone  what Harper did, and I think the StL players probably could have given more diplomatic responses, but I understand in both cases.  That said, those of you acting like it's somehow surprising that people get more mad about other teams' actions than they do about their own are either clueless or trolling.

Sports fans are hypocrites.  News at at 11.

I think this article is something the Nats need to pay attention to, or at least the management staff of the Nats need to pay attention to. It is another team outlining what our team did to make them feel like they could get back into the game, and then ultimately get back into it and win. What this is telling me is if the team's managers had made a few more clutch decisions, perhaps noticing the same thing the cardinals noticed, they pull Gio a little earlier, talk to the batters before getting into the box, tell Suzuki how to call the 9th, not borderline crap, etc. Maybe they could have squashed what the Cards built. This article is nothing more than some good insight into how a ballclub can scratch and claw their way back into a game they were out of. This is something the clubhouse needs to know so they don't repeat these same mistakes in the future.

This is nothing at all against the Nats, and if anyone takes offense at this they simply don't get it.

In addition to sweeping them, and having thought this over carefully, and culling through my 58 years of watching (and sometimes playing) baseball, next year requires what we used to call "chin music". Maybe there is good reason to give HRod a long look next April.

The Braves game that the Nats gave away mid-season was on all of their minds, probably. But it's not like our players suddenly froze on defensive plays. They didn't get to make any.

I was just thinking about Sal Maglie, and why he was called "The Barber"!

Because he would give hitters a close shave if they stood too close to the plate.

I don't see how recounting their emotions during the comeback can be classified as "trash-talking."  A reporter was asking them their frame of mind during the comeback and they responded.  It's a narrative.  That's it.

When they say that they saw Nats players panicking out there, it's just fact.  There's no embellishment.  Everyone could see that as it happened.  We all saw the beads of sweat trickling down the faces of Gio and Storen.  Why are the Cardinals so horrendous for pointing this out?

They should have re-watched the 9th inning with the TBS Pitch Tracker and realized how lucky they were, how many strikes calls as balls, how many other close calls went their way, before they participated in this column...or they should have just given home plate umpire, Alfonso Marquez, a playoff cut.

Was it Boz who said that the umpires don't object to the TBS pitch tracker because it is notoriously off?
