Re: Should Dusty have punted Game 1?
Never give away a playoff game. Dusty did the right thing. Its amazing how some are already planning for a game 5 and doubting this team. Ive done it at times this year myself but history has showed us that this team bounces back from any adversity it faces. Why not tonight? Leake beat Cain with a complete game effort in SF earlier this year. The Giants offense is looking like us in September and in case people havent been watching were up 2 games to 1. it seems like all our starters bring their A game when the crowd is into it and we have a packed house. I predict Leake will be brilliant tonight and if he isnt at least we can hope he pitches evenly with Zito. Our bullpen is better than SF. We just need to come up with a big hit. It will probably be a 2 out hit with RISP and I have a feeling Stubbs(call me crazy but weve been drilling this guy for 2+ years. Hes due IMO) will get that hit. 3-2 Redlegs and on to the NLCS.
