A franchise known for its postseason flops switched to fast-forward this time.
Brooks Conrad has been benched one day after making three errors at second base that left the Atlanta Braves on the brink of playoff elimination.
San Francisco rallied for a 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Brooks Conrad's third error of the game to claim the lead in the NL division series Sunday.
Sadly, history doesn't forget days like the one Brooks Conrad had in Game 3, when he committed three errors, including the one that led to the go-ahead run for the Giants in the ninth.
Smoke, mirrors and a never-give-up attitude brought Bobby Cox's Braves and Tim Lincecum's Giants into the National League playoffs. Think the Phillies are scared? (Neither do we.)
It took Brooks Conrad a long time to experience the kind of elation he did Thursday -- about 4,000 at bats ... in the minors. Plus, the data on declining performance by age will surprise you, at least if you believe PEDs weren't significant.
