I just don't know how this team competes offensively against elite teams in the post season. They rely so heavily on their pitching it's hard to imagine them winning more than a game in a short series. Just throw a tough righty at them like tonight. They've proved they can succeed in the regular season, just like 2010.
Doesn't Dickey count as a "tough righty?" They took care of him pretty good Wednesday night. I bet scanning game logs would show some other handling of tough righties also. I'd say Harvey benefitted from his first time through the league with above average stuff.
I imagine they will handle it like they have in the season as an elite team themselves.
