I just won a big playoff game in my fall league. Yeah. Great. And while I did pretty well and everone’s telling me how good I am, I can’t help but kick myself about a few things.
First, though I only gave up one run in 9 innings, I walked way too many guys.
Second, in the last inning, we had a 2-1 lead and I walked the leadoff guy and then plunked the second guy. It was as if I was about to just go and blow the whole season right there.
Then I struck out the next guy and got the next guy on a grounder double play. Game over. But I never should have lost focus and let it get so dangerous in that last inning.
While part of me is impressed with myself for an overall strong performance, another part is frustrated that I made mistakes. This is not to say that I’m a perfectionsit, but I guess I just have high expectations.
Anyone know about the approach some major leaguers take when assessing their past performances?
