Re: Should Dusty have punted Game 1?
Nope. Took some bad luck and a complete lack of offense in innings 2-10 to lose last night. Any offense whatsover and dominant Homer would be the toast of the town this morning.
Not walking Arias is the one that smarts. Would have taken out Romo, used up the last Giants position playr, setup a force at any base and forced the Giants to use Lincecum last night (making him unavailable for Game 4).
Baker played Saturday night perfectly.
Ironic that a team that made 161 starts is left scrambling for a 5th starter in the 4th game of a series. That's why baseball is so maddening but incredible to watch the ebbs and flows of a playoff series.
