Bochy has been a great October manager, but....

...but why did he put Strickland on the WS roster after he was a human launching pad in the Washington series? And why use him in a situation like this where a long ball pretty much means "game over"?

Re: Royals / Giants

Wow, I wonder what the Giants bullpen stats would be like without Strickland in there. Scary.

Re: Poll: What's up with the Cowboys?

The less Romo throws, the better. And they've built a team that is allowing that to happen now.

But it all starts with a vastly improved O-line, arguably the best in the NFL now. That means more of the running game, less reliance on Romo's [more]

Re: AJ, Dallas is coming around??

I think they may have the best offensive line in the NFL now. That will take a lot of pressure off of Romo, especially given how well they are run blocking for Murray.
