2009-10-12 15:00:00Phillies/Rockies Playoffs RoundtableJoe, you're right of course, but what they're going to look at is that they played .640 ball for Tracy, which is up there in Bob Lemon' 78 territory. The call to let Street pitch there is as bad as there is, but it doesn't negate that turnaround... Though one suspects it was coincidental to Tracy. It seems as if the biggest "change" Tracy made was that Tulowitzki started hitting like crazy. (Steven Goldman)
