I was going to do a post about how, no matter how microscopic his ERA, no matter how dominant he has been, no matter if he’s struck out everyone he’s faced, no matter what the stats
say, that if you need that ONE BIG OUT, Jon Broxton won’t deliver. I was going to write that the bigger the game, the smaller he becomes. I was going to say that when JB came into the game, I said it was over, but, I decided not to. I decided not to trash Jon Broxton, because, after all, he’s the best and the stats prove it, right?
Too many people would vilify me, castigate me and use big words and long numbers to prove that Broxton was the best closer in baseball, and I’m not going to go through that again, so I’ll bite my tongue.
I just wonder if the Dodgers can actually beat an AL team? I really wonder if Broxton can really deliver on a big stage?
Manny looked like a Spring Chicken – a stolen base? Maybe he should lead off!
Let me spit this bitter stuff out of my mouth…
