Your "Heroes of Concentration" Phillies/Reds Open Thread


Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto beat the Phillies 7-3 in Cincy on June 28. But then, they lost a game in Philly 10 days later. This is his first playoff game. Says Cueto, "I just need to concentrate." [Cincinnati.com]

The Phillies are up 2-0. Cole Hamels, the 2008 World Series MVP, is pitching. Says Hamels, "I've learned that you can't try to be a hero in the postseason. You just have to play your game. If you do that right, then you can become one." [Philly.com]
