Frazier, all season long has come up big in big games.
This is Dusty being Dusty...loyalty to the veterans...who had one error and should of had another error if it were not for Phillips saving his butt. 0-4 at the plate too.
Little League WS bigger than MLB playoffs? You are kidding, right?
But you know that Rolen is easily the better defender on a day to day basis, those were some tough plays that he tried to make. Really not fair, its not like he airmailed easy throws.
Like it or not, you have to lean for the D, just like Stubbs. If you are going to rely on pitching and D, you lean toward the D in the playoffs, where runs are likely scarce anyhow.
