maybe, but there is no way he could have kept on the amazing pace he was on for a full year. Schmidt has never pitched well against the dodgers.
And hatteberg hit a 2-run shot off of shmidt in the 9th in the start before that one, before schmidt could finish off his 3rd CG.
Don;t forget this man has thrown two 1 hitters this year. I would take schmidt over ant pitcher not named prior this year, but thats just my opinion.
Baseball is 90% mental, the other half is physical.
