GFBB Note: This same thing happened to me tonight. After taking a 5-0 lead in the 2nd against the Padres, the SF Giants proceeded to lose the game in the bottom of the 12th…….. their 4th loss in a row. And to be honest with you the minute the Padre hit that double in the 12th I turned off the TV so I could clean up the kitchen, which I did. I notice on the internet the Giants did indeed lose in the bottom of the 12th. I knew they would. I just didn’t want to watch it. But let’s face it, we’ve had our share of victories recently so I’m not always a fair weather fan. But c’mon, four in a row? Just wanted to let Jed McKeehan know he’s not alone. It’s something we baseball fans have in common. Good read ~ thanks for writing it!

Ah, I remember it like it was yesterday. Actually it was three days ago. My Cubbies are playing away at Cincinnati and clinging to a 2-1 lead going in to the bottom of the ninth. The Cubs starting pitcher, Carlos Villanueva with his incredible mustache, has pitched a phenomenal game. If you know anything about the Cubs, you know what happens.
Mistake Number One: They send Villanueva back out for the ninth to face the top of the order. First batter walks. “We’re still okay,” I tell myself. The next batter lays down a sacrifice bunt and advances the tying run into scoring position. “That’s alright, only two more outs to go,” I pray.
