Froze my tookas off! What a blast from Tony. The crowd was cheering his name! When Timo made the Sac. they cheered him too. I think most of them want to see him as the everyday CF. Then our boy Benitez comes in. You would think he would get Vladdy out. But no. Why him. Let's get the more unknown player to beat us. I have to admit it was a 96 MPH fastball he hit. I guess Benitez put it over the plate for him to swing at. This is like the 3rd live game Ive seen him blow a save in. Howe says he'll put Benitez in that situation all year long. Can't blame him. Benitez is usually solid during the year. Maybe it's the cold weather? I think every blown save I've seen live has been in cold weather. April, September, and October. Any thoughts on this? Does anyone know his blown save breakdown per month?
I asked this question in another thread but I will put it out there again. Benitez is off to a decent start this year so my question is will he blow up as he did last year or will he be reliable for the rest of the year?
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
