This was a week of historic failures in baseball, with both the Boston Red Sox and Atlanta Braves completing September swoons that saw them go from playoff locks to also rans. Boston manager Terry Francona lost his job because of his team's collapse, but he might not have even had the worst week.
On Wednesday night, Braves rookie closer Craig Kimbrel blew the save in what would be his team's final game of the year, giving up two runs to complete Atlanta's fall from a 8.5 game wild card lead at the beginning of September. According to one source, he then proceeded—perhaps not surprisingly—to get completely hammered before going home with a young lady friend. Whereupon he left his wallet at her house, and whereupon said young lady, being the classy dame she apparently is, took a picture of it and posted it to Facebook. All of which might make Mets fans feel a little bit better...if their star shortstop hadn't pulled himself from a game to preserve his batting average earlier in the day.
