I just watched Baseball Tonight's breakdown of tonight's Phillies-Rockies game, which Colorado lost 8-2. John Kruk said that the reason the Phillies can't win right now is that they have bad pitching and bad fundamentals. Fair enough. Then, to make his point, he showed a clip from tonight's game.
In the clip, Pat Burrell is on second base. A routine ground ball is hit to shortstop, and The Bat foolishly tries to take third, where he is thrown out easily. The next batter bloops a single to center, prompting Kruk to say (paraphrased):
If Burrell is on second there, the game is 2-1 instead of 2-0. That changes the whole rest of the game.
You heard it here first, folks. Pat Burrell, in one moment of selfishness, cost his team 7 runs and a win. No wonder an .890 OPS isn't good enough for the phans of Philadelphia to cheer for him.
