When Torre formally announced that Kuroda would start over Bills, I knew then that was a recipe for disaster. There's no way you trot a pitcher who hadn't tossed in 3 weeks, no matter how good his past record was. Bills might have struggled down the stretch, but he's the most seasoned power pitcher on the staff, just the kind of arm needed to get past a power hitting lineup.
It's embarrassing to see Torre get outmanaged thoroughly the whole series long.

In a weird way, I like the things they are. It's like watching a family more dysfunctional than yours, as evidenced with the McCourt separation. Then again, it pales in comparison to the Kevin Malone days.
...and you don't have to keep playing Mr. Obvious Wanker like you discovered penicillin when you realize the Dodgers are run by headless chickens.
