Grounding into multiple double plays, getting screwed by close calls by the umpires, continued reprehensible base running by Jacque Jones and lame excuses by Dusty Baker, and yet they had the tying run on before losing in Arizona.
You will remember that the 1999 season died after Lance Johnson got picked off in the first game of a series in Arizona, and that was during the same time that Rick Aguliera began blowing saves and Ron Santo had his heart attack. Maybe the comparison is bad, as this team has lost Derrek Lee, but the pitching has been bad.
I notice that Bob Brenly is softening his subtle criticism. Is he getting ready to move downstairs?
