Feeding the gopher

In my best glass-half-empty mode, I will note here that Ryan Pressly and Addison Reed have become disturbingly gopher-ball prone. ... Both have histories of allowing long balls, so it's not as if this is unexpected.

And what happened Friday night? Pressly pitched the seventh, and gave up a two-run homer to turn a 2-1 lead into a 3-2 deficit. Reed pitched the eighth and gave up a solo shot.


That we can see this coming just adds to the irritation when it happens.
