I don't want to talk about it.

...except to say that it did not go unnoticed that the momentum of the game swung not long after Juan Pierre entered.

I don't know what mystical forces he presents, and the logical side of my brain says that this loss gets pinned on Nomar and, to a much lesser extent, Kent, and, to an even lesser extent, Broxton. But I can't be sure Pierre had nothing to do with it.

Just to be safe, maybe he should sit out an entire game.

I thought the exact same thing. When I saw Gonzales stay on the bench I started yelling a Grady Little, "What are you doing, you idiot? Why would you weaken our defense late in the game?" Sure enough, the cooler came through for the Padres. I've never rooted for one of my boys to suffer a career ending injury before, but this guy's really trying my patience!

I hope Pierre doesn't get injured. Besides the fact that rooting for an injury is seriously bad karma, Pierre does have value: he should be benched and used as a pinch hitter/pinch runner. I bet he'd be very good at that. It is his proper role.

Every season has a loss like this.

Why our awful loss always seems to happen against the Padres, I don't know.

What was really painful for me was that I DVR'd the game (I had to do baby-bed prep stuff), but forgot to add that extra hour. When Broxton started the inning I only had ten minutes left, but I said to myself, no worries. If he goes 1-2-3 that will fit in ten minutes.

It was 5-2 with bases loaded when I lost it. Reading about it online did not make it easier, but I suppose there was less loud swearing.
