In the bottom of the 7th Eric O’Flaherty appeared to have Shane Victorino struck out on a called 3rd strike. Ok let’s cut the shit, it was a strike and this minor league ump, who was called up before the game, missed one big time. If this call had went against the Phillies I’d be losing my mind right now. But instead I won’t focus on that, instead let’s focus on the Phillies winning and Fredi Gonzalez’s epic managing.
The Braves dropped 4 sacrifice bunts tonight. 4. I think every time the Braves got a runner on first they sacrificed him over. Now, Fredi Gonzalez recently went to a SABR convention and last time I checked a sac bunt is a wasted out according to their species. Let’s check in with SABRbabe Bill Baer from Crashburn Alley:
Gonzalez must have been taking a dump during that presentation.
