Just miserable stuff for anyone who invested the nearly four hours into tonight’s extra-inning choke job in Toronto. At least the Sam Fuld show kept up the entertainment value.
You just knew Sean Rodriguez dropping a perfect pickoff throw at second base in the seventh inning was trouble, combined with Dan Johnson’s inability to make a high school throw from first to second.
Casey Kotchman anyone? At least as a late-inning defensive replacement for a guy hitting .121.
If Johnson can’t hit or field, what the hell’s he doing out there? Joe’s really never understood why a 31-year-old journeyman needs all this rope to hang himself.
Ben Zobrist’s odd angles and decision making were the icing on Triple-A night in the field.
Four runs and a quality start has to be enough for these Rays. It wasn’t.
Put this on the list of painful losses Rays fans can reference in September.
