For my 2nd game recap, I bring you a game that Gwaza quite accurately calls "a steaming pile of suck".
Both Mike Matheny and Yadier Molina made questionable moves with the game on the line. Yadi's crucial at bat was a display of over-aggression. And Matheny's moves were a labyrinthine maze of uncertainty. Made all the more frustrating by the Cubs bullpen trying to give the Cardinals the game.
This game was rife with not only questionable managerial moves and player performance, it had plenty of truly awful umpiring. The strike zone was having a bad trip tonight. Gabe Morales is not an ump I would like to witness behind the plate again, to be blunt. It truly was some of the most horrid umping I have ever seen.
