This Week in "Dewey Defeats Truman," FOX4

Fox4Tweet.jpg
I didn't sleep a wink last night -- kept replaying over and over the myriad mistakes made by Ron Washington and the Texas Rangers last night, twice one strike away from Winning It All. They're recounted below, blow by painful blow; how Sam gets it up for tonight's Do-or-Die preview and open thread is beyond me. We also touched on this tweet seen above, the screengrab of which was sent to me during the ninth. Deadspin's right: It's not FOX4's fault the Rangers lost -- not unless Steve Eager made the call to pitch Ogando and Oliver, or Heather Hays was butchering balls at first. But ... come on, people. Get your shit together.

Cmon boys, like romo said, if that's the worst thing in life that happens to them....j/k but I have a good feeling about tonight. Its fucking game 7, and our Texas Rangers are playing in it! 12 hrs from now will be the best time of our lives

Is anyone else depressed today? I feel like I got punched in the gut last night and I'm going to get my ass kicked tonight. I don't know if I can watch it live. Methinks I'll take the kids to Chuck E Cheese and pick up a sixer on the way home. Wife is out of town so I can't get trashed.

I Elvis'd my tv last night with the kids automatic chain fed Nerf gun. I'm glad they weren't awake to see their dad break down.

It's quite obvious, duh! That David Stern and his illuminati are at it once again, rigging the finals(just like he does with the NBA), so him and his ilk(the sports merchandising industry & the like) will make the biggest profits....since we all know there are more Cardinal fans displaced throughout the U.S. Hello!

when the #bullpenis letting you down, that's the way baseball gonna go. I haven't been able to find it anywhere, is Mike Gonzalez hurt?

The first few innings - errors all over the place, both teams - and the inability of the bullpen to get an out - well, Wash didn't cause those.

Was Wash perfect? Nope. But this was all on the players.

Tough game. The toughest. Ranks up there with U of H vs NC State as far as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom pain goes ...

I was super pissed - not even about the alert itself but because when I very nicely called to let them know I'd received an erroneous push alert (I work in PR and have the newsroom number in my phone) the guy who answered was really rude and hung up on me!

On the Facebook, someone suggests I shoulda gone with the headline: This week in "Laura Miller schedules parade"

Wow.  That's damn funny, though I'd be pretty pissed were I a Rangers fan.

This is such a good point. Look at the evidence. Look at every single World Series that goes 7 . . . oh, wait, 10 years since they had a game 7? Oh, but look at the NBA and the huge ratings they got for Game 7 between Dallas & Miami . . . oh, what? That ended in 6? Well, ignore the evidence when you have a good conspiracy theory!

Of course, but Wash should know that Ogando has had it, he's been a total bust his last few starts, don't put him in that position. And Wash should know that Feliz is STILL a better option for the 7th, 8th, and 9th hitters than frickin Darren Oliver with the game on the line. You gotta put your players in position to succeed.

I got a couple of goats I would donate to the cause. (Really)  I'm blaming freaking Hicks foor being there...WTF dude? Nobody likes you Tommy, nobody in Texas..nobody in England (or wherever the soccer team is located)..crawl back into your hole Hicks!

Can we find out how JWP cost the Rangers the game then? Lots of problems solved there.

Apparently he's been at all the home WS games. He didn't sound like Lucifer when Gordo interviewed him either. I'm so confused now between Hicks being more likeable to listen to than CJ and Game 6's clusterfuck.

Maybe Wai-Wize has some "equity" in the Busch Stadium concession business.
