Too bad he didn't impress Torre enough to let him start the 9th last night. But that was the lesser of Torre's egregious errors last night. In extra innings after they score a run, they had a guy on second with two out. He lets Trancoso come up to bat. WTF was that? Can anybody out there in KIA land 'splain that to me????
JB: Kershaw is the real deal. I wouldn't trade him for anybody, including Halladay, Hershiser or even Osteen.
I was also puzzled by Torre keeping Tranman in but it sorta made sense. Torre and LaRussa both often go against the grain and that's why they're so successful, although Torre's had great players through the years.
It was a dam if you do, dam if you don't story with Kershaw pitching the 9th. I probably would have brought in Broxton too. Man, with 2 out, no one on, 2 strikes on the batter, I would have bet my life it was "Game Over."
Dam Cardinals - they figuratively own the Dodgers. Next time I see Bob B, I'm going to beat him just on general principle.
