Notes From Sunday's Game (UPDATE)

  1. Great defense. Now we'll see more calls for Sherrill to take over for Broxton. Unwarranted calls. (UPDATE: Call # 1 for Broxton's head)
  2. Clayton Kershaw only lasted 4 innings in his first start in almost a month (2 ER, 4 Hits, 4 K, 1 BB, 2 WP, 79 pitches - 49 for strikes), but he must start in the playoffs. To do anything else would be foolish. Granted, foolish is Joke Joe Torre's middle name. And first name.
  3. Bullpen: 4.1 IP, 4 Runs [3 ER], 7 Hits, 5 K, 3 BB [all IBB].
  4. Orlando Hudson (Single, 2 BB [1 IBB]) reached base 3 times, while James Loney (2 Singles) and Ronnie Belliard (Double, Single) each reached base twice.
  5. The offense drew 4 walks while striking out 5 times.
  6. 2 Errors, plus a botched double play by Furcal in the 9th. So really 3 Errors, all in the 9th inning.
  7. Magic number is still just 1.
  8. The Cleveland Show was atrocious.


  1. I didn't think the Cleveland Show was that bad. The American Dad season premiere was funny. But the Family Guy season premiere was horrible. I don't think I've laughed less at a Family Guy episode.

  2. I'm not a big Jonathan Broxton fan, but to remove him as closer would be stupid. It was one bad outing, with some bad defense behind him.

  3. I love American Dad, it's been better than Family Guy on the whole since it premiered.

    I thought Family Guy was pretty funny, a couple of blah moments, but solid overall.

    I thought there were about 5 funny lines in The Cleveland Show, and 4 of them were said by the Family Guy characters.

    Yet I'll still probably watch next week's episode.
