If they're complaining now, think of how they'll feel 11 years from now on the back end of the contract when he's all they have left and the result is no WS titles.
I've got a bunch at my parents house you can have; I'll just have to take the clothespins off of them and remove them from my old bicycle tire spokes.I'm about to stress buy baseball cards
I did the same thing after being displaced by Hurricane Katrina. It helped me get through some PTSD. Bought a bunch of 1975 cards that my mother had thrown out when I was a kid. I feel better now...really.Hey man, I'm going through my mid-life crisis, and it just happens to be baseball card buying. Forgive me for finding an excuse to spend more money on them.
As an aside, I did buy a Mookie rookie last night, which I'mexcited to get in a few days.
They said there’s no chance Fried goes on short rest, so it will be 3. They might even start Tomlin (!!!).From -12 to +8: I'm guessing there have been bigger run-differential turnarounds in back-to-back playoff games, but there can't have been too many.
I was absolutely ready for the series to be tied 2-2 after that game, but Bryce Wilson, take an absolute bow. The Braves needed him to go six innings even if he gave up 16 runs, just to revitalize the bullpen; for him to out-pitch Kershaw and give up only two baserunners in six innings was simply extraordinary.
So, if you're Brian Snitker, what is your starting pitching plan for the rest of the series? A few potential ideas:
1) Fried (short rest), Anderson (short rest), Wright (probably on full rest after his short outing in Game 3)
2) Fried (short rest), Wright (probably rested enough?), Anderson (full rest)
3) Bullpen game, Fried (full rest), Anderson (full rest)
I have no idea which option makes the most sense.
I was intending to come here and ask if there was really as big a difference between his season vs. his post-season numbers, but then Mlb Now on mlbn did a whole segment on it. It's real and it's spectacular(ly noticeable). He is not the horse you are looking for a la Schilling, Johnson, was the conclusion.Playoff Kershaw.
Lester, maybe, in his prime?Forget about the all time greats like Gibson or Koufax or Schilling. How many pitchers from his own era would you pick to start a must win game over Kershaw? Bumgarner, Strasburg, Verlander, Wainwright, Scherzer. And that’s just off the top of my head.
Charlie Morton, tooForget about the all time greats like Gibson or Koufax or Schilling. How many pitchers from his own era would you pick to start a must win game over Kershaw? Bumgarner, Strasburg, Verlander, Wainwright, Scherzer. And that’s just off the top of my head.
