MLB Playoffs


Recommended Posts

The Dodgers have moved into the pathetic zone.  Really, Kershaw, back to back hanging sliders?  Yes, you might want to check the Nationals' bats to see if they have lead in them, but how many golpher balls can you throw?  It's like the old days when the Dodgers would win the NL pennant and face the Yanks in the series.  The Yankees demolished them until 1955.  

Spoke to Sandy Amoros once about why he was playing so close to left field line for Berra, who was a notorious left-handed pull hitter. The conversation was fascinating. That play saved the series for Podres and the Dodgers. Three runs would have scored and the 1955 Yankees would have won the World Series.

Managers so often over-manage in the playoffs. Last night was an example of that.

Aaron Boone hopping on the over-managing wagon.

Absolutely. Taking out a pitcher who is pitching really well is managing by a book rather than by what’s actually happening. Of course, you get away with it if the next pitcher doesn’t immediately get hit out of the park.

 

Exhausting game, which could very easily have been won if not for that move.

The bullpen did a fine job, by the way - whether they were "needed" or not, the fact is that Boone didn't want to let the game get away from Paxton, as it easily could have; it's not like he was blowing the Astros away.

 

You still have to score more runs than the other team,  a team which had scored only 2 thru 9.
