2010-10-06 10:00:002010 Playoffs Day OneThe announcers were just saying that CC has to regroup and hold 'em, which is of course easier said than done. I saw this interview with Jerry Koosman about one of his starts in the 1969 WS, and he gave up three runs early in the deciding Game 5. He said he came back to the dugout and said, "That's it, they're not getting any more. I'll hold them here. You do the rest." (I paraphrase). That was exactly what happened. But I always wonder, how could Koosman promise that? He couldn't be sure. How would the rest of the team have reacted to him if he had allowed more runs? (Steven Goldman)
