Photo (The Buffalo News) Some called it a lazy play.  Others called the play boneheaded.  And some said that Anthony Gose fell asleep in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday evening against the Gwinnett Braves.  His manager Marty Brown doesn’t think any of those descriptions fit what his talented center fielder did to cost Ricky Romero his first win as a Buffalo Bison. The Bisons lead 4-0 on Wednesday evening and lead 4-1 when Romero exited the game after seven strong innings where he gave up just one un-earned run.  The Braves got within one in the top half of the ninth as a bloop single by Todd Cunningham to center field looked like it was going to be fielded cleanly by a shallow Gose. Jose Yepez rounded third and was seemingly headed home but Gose’s strong arm was poised to keep the one run lead.  Gose unnecessarily rushed and bobbled the ball allowing the tying run to score. To add insult to injury, Gose inexplicably lolly-gagged the ball into second base where no one was and as the ball was coming in to eventually hit the dirt, Jose Constanza scored the game-winning run. “I don’t know if I would call it a brain cramp,” said an irritated Brown following Wednesday’s game.  ”There’s no call for that to happen in the ninth inning and Anthony knows better than that too so we’re going to have to get his head removed from some place it shouldn’t be.” Brown was then asked as a follow up if it has been a struggle with Gose since he was sent back to Buffalo from Toronto after a short stint in the majors.  Brown’s answer, very easy to understand. “Yeah,” said Brown. “I’ve had some players that have really been challenging as a manager,” said Brown.  ”Anthony is one of the most talented players I’ve had as a manager, but sometimes it’s difficult because he doesn’t apply that.” “Hopefully he learns from it and understands you have to be accountable for  stuff like that when it happens.  Those things can’t happen, at this level or the next level.” After Gose’s first game back in Buffalo on June 7th, also a Romero start, he didn’t seem very  pleased to be back in Triple-A. “We’re not even going to talk about it (being back in Buffalo),” he said. Gose did not play Thursday in a series finale loss to the Braves and it is uncertain if he will be in the lineup Friday when Jose Reyes makes his debut against Durham.   Feature photo courtesy of http://assets.nydailynews.com The post Marty Brown Irked by Anthony Gose’s Recent Play appeared first on Queen City Sports.
