Former Cubs In The Playoffs

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IOctober 11, 2010

I didn’t expect Dusty Baker’s Reds to knock off the Phillies in the NLDS. But I was hopeful Baker’s bunch would at least have a good showing. That, of course, didn’t happen with Philly making a clean 3-0 sweep.

Although the Reds managed more errors (7) than runs (4), there’s no shame losing a short series against the likes of Halladay, Oswalt & Hamels.

Cincinnati, however, was primed for a Game 2 victory before costly fielding mistakes allowed a four-run lead to evaporate. Sorry Baker-haters, but you can’t blame Dusty for losing the ball in the lights!

Former Cubs in the playoffs:

Derrek Lee, ATL: 2-for-12 (.167), 2-R, 0-HR, 0-RBI, 1-BB, 5-K.

Mike Fontenot, SF: 1-for-4 (.250), 1-R, 1-3B, 0-BB, 1-K.

Kerry Wood, NYY: (0-0) 3-Games, 4.50 ERA, 2.0 IP, 1-ER, 4-H, 2-BB, 3-K.

Kyle Farnsworth, ATL: (0-0) 2-Games, 0.00 ERA, 2.0 IP, 0-ER, 1-H, 1-BB, 1-K.
