Game 89: When I said we would have more garbage to complain about, I wasn't lying (48-41)

Taking out Pat Burrell for a pinch runner when the game had a good chance of going into extra innings is certifiably insane. Geoff Jenkins had two at-bats in that spot and did shit. If Pat Burrell stays in the game the Phils still may have lost, but it would have been a lot less likely. On that note, I'm going to bed. I can't take this crap anymore.

And why would Durbin allow Tatis to danced down the third base line without a fastball in the next guy's ear? He's just as spineless as his manager.
