The Broxton defenders will say that Jamey Carroll cost Brox the game with his error, but the reality of the situation is that Carroll had to
charge it and “hope” that he could come up with it. He didn’t!
But Broxton did put 2 runners on with walks (1 intentional) and allowed two hits. Broxton has been extremely lucky up until today. He had 5 saves, but his 4.35 ERA is much better than he has pitched. He’s awful.
Blame it on Carroll, Blame it on Jone Torre. I blame it on Broxton. He is toast. Closers have a short life, blah, blah, blah – quit making excuses! The guy is bad. You think it’s physical.
I think it’s mental. If Ned had traded him 3 years ago, like I requested, we’d be much better off.
The Dodgers should have won this game. How long will they stick with him?
People in the know call him a “second-tier, closer, but a great set up man.” In my opinion, I think he’s not even close to second-tier – more like 4th tier, and I’m no longer sure he can set up.
OK, Broxton Basher Bashers: Have at it!
