If they do lose the division, there is no doubt this is a choke job. Up 3 with 16 left has got to be a franchise record ... maybe even a city record.
I've resigned myself to losing the division. The loss on Thursday against KC when they blew the 3-0 lead and had two baserunning mistakes inside 3rd base was the dagger. They've not played well since.
"Out of gas" is just a nice way of saying "choke."
