"What is there to explain? It's very simple. When you don't play defensively well, and you don't get good pitching, you're not going to win ballgames. That's how you explain it."
(Frank Robinson, via Washington Post, 9/11/2006)
Hey, at least they didn't make an error. Frank said it all. We have nothing to add. Rockies 13, Nationals 9.
Although we could discuss how Soriano missed out on the 40-40 club after the official scorer made the right call on defensive indifference in the 9th. But since there's really nothing left to discuss (unless you're Davey Lopes) since the official scorer got it right, we'll wait it out for another day as Soriano's price tag goes a little bit higher.
