Championship hangover my ass! I had a feeling this crap would happen because the team would be stuck in 2005 and wouldn't be used to wearing the bullseye on their backs.
HOWEVER, a championship hangover doesn't include botching routine plays and playing dumb. This whole defense issue needs to get right and in a hurry.
I know the whole thought process of not giving up outs on the road, but why in the hell wouldn't you bunt two guys over in the eighth with no outs and the middle of your order coming up?
