Re: Postseason Scoreboard watching....
People say a strikeout is like any other out.
If Drew Stubbs fans 200 times, these are no worse than 200 pop ups.
But if Drew Stubbs hit the ball 100 of those at bats, that would provide 100 additional opportunities for success.
The point is not the IMPACT of the strikeout. It's the lost OPPORTUNITY when you don't hit the ball.
Folks should read Verducci's stuff. He quotes Votto in one of his pieces. At least one article is on-line, it's very interesting. It discusses making contact, particularly with two strikes, and winning playoff games.
By the way, despite their victory over the Reds, I'm rooting Giants in this Series. I usually root for the NL and this is no exception. Giants have a well balanced team IMO. Not a great offense, but a good club and VERY well managed.
