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.
