    This story by Tim Brown on last night is fantastic, wow: http://tinyurl.com/z857cre

    I've been trying to read every article about last night lol. LA Times has a few great ones as well but Brown's is the best

    An interesting part from that article and a post game interview I saw: Friedman had no idea Kershaw would do that. They went over a game plan but Kershaw never came up. Man

    A lot of hit batters, but just pitchers using the whole zone - not two teams trying to show who has a bigger dick. In fact, Joc was HBP and it wasn't even called.

    Possibly related, one of my favorite moments last night was Zimmerman's walk/waddle after Urias pitched him up and in with a scary fastball.

    and Zimmerman responded with the ill-fated double down the LF line.

    I find that interesting. The article also said Honeycutt and Roberts both told Kershaw "No way" too. I think before and during every playoff game I post something about how Kershaw should be available to pitch in relief, maybe it's just the kid in me who remembers the '88 playoffs when it seemed like Hershiser pitched every inning. Or when I look up boxscores from the '65 and '66 series and Koufax's name is everywhere. We see other teams do this all the time.

    I'm actually surprised that with all the times we've been in the playoffs recently, that this was Kershaw's first save and Kenley's longest outing. I was fist-pumping when Kenley came in in the 7th and bouncing off the walls when Kershaw was walking to the bullpen. Win or Lose, that game had to end with Kershaw on the mound. Nothing else really made sense if you truly think about it.

    perhaps you're overlooking the shitty throw to the plate by Reddick where the runner was safe by 15' whereas Puig would of had him out.

    Best part of Toles is that he's competent at nearly every aspect. He got to the ball quickly, fielded it and threw to the proper player. He's quick on the bases. He's shown a good BA so far, enough power. His arm was adequate but not in the catregory of Puig's cannon. So what?

    Puig's weakest muscle is between his ears.




    One of the sadder shots of the night was Puig being recalled back to the dugout

    To say he was bummed would be an understatement.

    It was certainly the way to shut up the rabble rousing doubters

    I think you're short changing Toles arm. He has a gun, especially for a LF.

    Not in the Puig category, but a gun nonetheless.

    Reddick normally throws well, too. Just not last night.

    Nah, he ripped a double but it ended well for us with Werth getting thrown out. Just watched the replay again, and Werth looked slow all the way around the bases.

    Yeah I agree that Werth looked gassed and wanted to stop at 3B

    Think that coach keeps his job this winter?

    Don't care, but wouldn't mind paying him in the off season for that call.

    Probably gassed from diving at so many routine fly balls.

    I hope that grease ball Werth tweaks his entire body doing one of those soccer drama catches in the outfield.

    Ethier or Kendrick don't cut that ball off before it hits the wall IMO. Toles is who we want in LF man, the guy finding a way to get on base saved our arse.
