MLB  > Philadelphia Phillies  > Trading Shane Victorino
November 2, 2010, 05:53 PM
If you really take a look back over the last three seasons, and you hear the name shane victorino, you will think about the grand slam vs CC, and the Game tying homerun vs the dodgers in game four... both coming in 2008, but after that he has not really done much. In my opinion he played the biggest roll in not winning the 2009 world series in game three when andy pettite who was already down 3-0 walked Cole Hammels on 4 pitches, then walked Jimmy Rollins on 4 pitches, and then shane comes up and swings at the first two pitches which were in the dirt, and then swings at the third and pops it up... in my opinion when you have argubly the best post season pitcher of the last 15 years on the ropes in a game 3 of a series tied 1-1 you need to take advantage of that situation. Shane also made a huge mistake in game 6 of the NLCS this year vs the Giants in the 8th inning when he was doubled off on a line drive by Carlos Ruiz, if that ball gets through he walks home backwards with no problem....
