…. Desperation

It had to come to this, didn’t it? A team so flawed, so marginally successful; could hardly have been expected to follow a smooth progression to the promised land.

Alou had whittled his relief corps down to Brower, Eyre, and Hermanson except for the most dire circumstances; and all three had finally run out of gas, and once more, the bullpen exploded in our faces.

Blame Sabean, or more accurately, Magowan. Saving a million dollars here and there left Alou with no bench, no middle relief other than Jim Brower, and no margin for error (Thanks for the memories, Cody. Good luck at Safeway).

Tonight, it’s our former Cy Young candidate against the six-time winner, Roger Clemens, in two places at the same time. Do the Rockies have any of the balls left in them that led them to three devastating September wins against the Giants? I doubt it.

As for Barry, he reached base 3 times yesterday, and as many of you noted, his season total now stands at 375. He needs four today to tie the record, a possibility, but not much of one, as the Dodgers have no reason not to pitch to him now. The real chance lies in the one-game playoff, if the Giants can get there.
