Brooks had a very bad day

Yeah yeah yeah... three errors including 2 that produced runs in a 3-2 game.
Lest we forget he ALSO screwed up a sacrifice bunt in the 8th inning.

I feel very bad for him.
9 years in the minors... he scrapped and clawed his way to the big leagues.... he played 5 different positions in the minors trying to get a big league shot... He gets to the big leagues... hits a dramatic walk off grand slam earlier this year... and now finds himself starting in the post season.

It should be a feel good story about a guy who just wouldn't quit.
And now he is going to be remembered as a post season goat.

I can't help but feel bad for the guy.

A silver lining? He plays in Atlanta which isn't exactly an intense baseball town. If he did this in New York, Boston or Philadelphia, he'd be burnt in effigy.

    I'm really hoping the Braves advance to get this guy of the hook. His journey getting to the big leagues reminds me a lot of Darnell McDonald and Daniel Nava. I'd feel really awful if this had happened to on of them.

    Atlanta, Win It For...Brooks Conrad!

  2. If he gets the bunt down...he probably isn't playing 2nd in the 9th. I had a feeling that Cox may have messed up when they announced Glaus as a pinch hitter only to replace him with Hinske. Yeah, Hinske homered, but you lost a defensive sub without giving him an at bat.
