Time for a recap of tonight’s titanic struggle….
FINAL – 11 innings
WP: Morales (3-0)
LP: Masset (4-1)
S: Street (28)
–Six losses in a row. Twelve losses in thirteen games. Since the All-Star break: 3-14. Last place in the National League Central. Things just keep getting worse.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“The snowball just keeps getting bigger, man,Ã¢â‚¬Â starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“The good teams find a way to stop these slides. We just keep finding ways to lose.Ã¢â‚¬Â
This team is a disaster. At least our general manager is optimistic; he thinks this team is one aged third baseman away from being a contender in 2010.
(Some actual, non-sarcastic, good news: it appears that Scott Rolen is okay after getting hit in the head by a Colorado pitch. No blurred vision, etc. We’ll keep our fingers crossed that everything is alright for him tomorrow.)
