Deja Vu All Over Again

New, comment

Last night's game reminded me of this game.

The parallels are striking.

Vicente Padilla on the mound for both games.  Shaky, but gives the team some innings.  In both games, the visitors jumped out with a big first inning, only to let the other team into the game soon thereafter.

The Rangers get a lead late, in part due to bad defense, then the bullpen blows it.  The Rangers then come back with a 10th inning home run to win.

The parallels aren't perfect -- particularly given the first game was a walk-off win, and the second required C.J. Wilson to come in and put out the fire -- but still, those two games seem oddly similar.

And they left me with the same sort of queasy, that could have been worse but should have been better feeling afterwards.
