Some losses hurt more than others
Yesterday was a rough day for me, I had my wisdom teeth out yesterday morning, spent pretty much the rest of the day in bed sleeping. Then finally got up and saw the Cardinals lose a heartbreaker. The game started off all Reds. Chris Hesiey robbed Albert of a solo homer in the first, then led off the bottom of the first with a solo homer of his own. Johnny Cueto was good for the most part, but so was Jake Westbrook who except for 2 solo homers by Hesiey had done a solid job keeping the Reds off the board. The last 3 innings were crazy. The Cards took the lead in the top of the 7th, only to have the bullpen give it away in the bottom of the 7th. Then in the top of the 8th, the best part of the night, Albert crushed a 2 run homer to left to put the Cards up 5-4. It seemed as if the Cards were finally going to do something they had not done since last August, win at Great American Ballpark, then with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th, Brandon Phillips crushed us. He hit a game winning 2 run homer to left field to win it for the Reds. Now most regular season losses are not bad, you say “oh well we’ll get them tomorrow.” But last night is one of those losses that just leaves a really bitter taste in your mouth, not only did we lose to the Reds on a walk-off but the walk-off was hit by Brandon Phillips (who for those of you who may not know, is public enemy #1 in Cardinals Nation.) To make things worse it looked as if Brandon was taunting the Cardinals players on his way to homeplate saying what I’m sure were not so friendly words. But for those of you who don’t know, now you know. Brandon Phillips is an overrated jerk who thinks he’s all that. If he said what I think he said at the Cards dugout last night, that only confirms it.
