Tough loss to swallow. Then again, what loss in the World Series isn't tough?
Game 6 back at home. Likely Pettitte versus Martinez. Today we saw that seeing a pitcher a second time is big for our lineup. 5 runs against Cliff Lee is huge.
People are going to point Burnett's horrible start to pitching on short rest. I doubt that was it. AJ is always imploding and throwing gems and imploding every other week. I feel Andy will give us a solid start tommorow, he's always been consistent. He may be old, but I don't think he'll suffer too much from getting one less day of rest.
Great fight in this team. Can't say I am angry that we threw Coke out there, he seemed like the right choice with Marte pitching a lot, but it backfired. Good news is that we saw good things out of Robertson, Aceves, and Hughes.
Honestly, I expected AJ to dazzle us and outduel Lee tonight. Something similar to Andy vs Smoltz. It didn't happen. We'll be fine.
By the way, let's NOT pitch to Chase Utley anymore.
