#Hot Corner

Cowboy Down

Cubs-Reds, top 9. Cubbies have tying run on first (Fukudome) with nobody out. Darwin Barney (.324/.345/.429 in 111 PA) tries to bunt twice and fails. Works count to 2-2. Then hits a line drive right back through the box that Cordero blindly catches and tosses to first for the double play. Jeff Brantley:

"That is why you get the bunt down."

↵

Yes. That incredibly flukey play -- that 1-in-1000 stroke of terrible luck -- is the reason you should have sacrificed an out for no reason with your 3-4 hitters coming up.

I have no jokes for this. I'm just irritated.

How is everyone else doing?  You guys okay?
