On winning teams, someone always steps up to contribute in key situations. On losing teams, it's the same, only the step is down, not up. Tonight's key contributor was shortstop J.J. Hardy. When he bobbled the Nationals' Cristian Guzman's routine double-play bouncer in the sixth inning, Washington sent six men to the plate and turned the error into four unearned runs, changing a 1-1 tie into a frustrating 5-1 loss for the Brewers. Boxscore.
They are hard to watch. I think Braun was right. They just expect bad things to happen. They certainly don't act like they expect to win.
Everyone is allowed to make mistakes we are human, it sucks though that this one happened to cost us the game. JJ Hardy is a great shortstop and he just had an off day like almost everyone has at one time or another. I don't know why people expect athletes to be perfect because they aren't. They make mistakes too!
