Thoughts, lists and other compulsive bits about baseball from comedian filmmaker television producer/Red Sox fan Paul Francis Sullivan....
feel free to call him “Sully.”
The funny thing is how often a team misses the playoffs by a game or two and any fan of that team will be able to describe several game they "should" have won. As an Indians' fan, I remember an interleague game against the Reds. Scenario was bases loaded in extra innings at home with no outs. Somehow we managed to lose. We ended up missing the playoffs by one game. While that game stuck with me, there were at least a dozen other games they should have won. Vizquel is one of my favorite players of the last 20 years, but I still fixate on his failure to get a run in that day.
I missed this play but if I saw it live I would probably been pissed off all day, so maybe it was a good thing. At least it wasn't a perfect game blown call
