I'll eat my shoe the day Wilson does something clutch.

What a useless excuse for an outfielder.  He should be benched.  I don't care what we paid him.

With all those home runs we had...I really REALLY thought this was going to be a much-needed relaxed game.  Boy was I wrong.   :roll:

Runners on first and second nobody out and we don't score? Please let this not be another bad rerun!

Thing is, had it not been for freak umpiring, we'd all be relaxing.  That's what makes me curse to the heavens.

And Ensberg gets another hit.  Jesus, we're going to let this slip away.

Regardless of the bad call at second...there's no excuse for the complete choke-off by Guzman on the next play.   :x

Its a good thing Wilson missed about 20 games this year, can you imagine how many times he would had struck out had he played those 20 games?

true he should have been called out on the one play but Luis did his job on the next one and if Guzman makes the routine play then we're still out of the inning without any runs.....

uh oh Stanton is in

He's one of the few players who actually has won me over after starting off on a bad foot.  And to be fair, the bad foot (aka The Balk) wasn't even his fault, just the result of another crappy umpiring call.  

He's an old pro.

We need to do three things:

1.) Get an insurance run.

2.) Get another insurance run.

3.) Hold on through the 8th.

I'm worried about sending Chief on with another 1-run lead.
