So yeah, it was a bit of a letdown, I guess we had a giftwrapped inning last night and they had a giftwrapped inning tonight.
Hard to analyze this game in a unique light, as each game can be reduced to:
Great starting pitching, timely if slightly impotent offense, a few make or break plays decide the outcome and, oh yeah, we are in first place with Steve Finley as a starter.
I do think Shields pitched actually okay, so I wouldn't go blaming him in any manner of intensity.
So there is your goddamn analysis, don't forget it is a day game and then on to Suckass Seattle, where Team Frapuccino awaits our vengeance.
