Baseball mafia on the job helping out Trevor, as always
- For example, he says Rudy Seanez came into the game after Trevor and 'blew the save.'
- According to Game Day, Trevor had blown the save as well, but Bloom only says Seanez had a blown save.
The soreness was a key reason why Bochy didn't go back to Hoffman in the 10th inning of Monday's 11-10 loss to the Dodgers, and instead went with veteran right-hander Rudy Seanez, who blew the save and the game by allowing a walk to Kenny Lofton and Nomar Garciaparra's two-run walk-off homer.
"I asked, but Trevor's been dealing with some tenderness in his shoulder, and we decided it wouldn't be wise to push it," Bochy said. "He only has a certain amount of bullets to use, and we decided not to use them.""
- So, Bochy's not at fault BECAUSE HE ASKED TREVOR TO THROW MORE, BUT TREVOR MENTIONED THE SHOULDER PROBLEM.
- BUT TREVOR'S NOT AT FAULT BECAUSE HE'S A SAINT AND WOULD NEVER USE ANY KIND OF EXCUSE.
- BUT BOCHY MENTIONS THE FAMOUS "BULLETS," WHICH MEANS EXACTLY HOW MANY PITCHES IT WILL TAKE TO WIN AN AWARD.
- THIS WHOLE THING IS A FRAUD--THE GUY HASN'T THROWN MORE THAN 1 INNING IN 2 YEARS, HAS BEEN ADAMANT THAT HE WON'T DO SO, AND THE TEAM HAS HIM THERE FOR THE 'ENTERTAINMENT VALUE' (per Sandy Alderson) of going after a cheap stat.
- Even Kevin Kennedy today expressed doubt over the use of Hoffman, that there's too much emphasis on his going for a stat. Too much? That's all he's there for, it's right out there in the open.
- STOP ALL BASEBALL WRITERS FROM VOTING ON BASEBALL AWARDS IMMEDIATELY.
