    Was a good World Series, where you never knew who was going to win what. It's why they play the game as stats don't mean much when game is being played.

    Sorry for the Dodgers... With that payroll, wow! Not really sorry, just being polite.

    Not sure what this means, stats played a huge roll in the games as they helped dictate the managerial moves from lineup to pitching changes as well as pitching and hitting strategies employed by each individual.

    What a weird comment.

    Like what?

    Please don't say start Kershaw. I believe that to be very results oriented. His last stay wad 4 2/3 6ER. He wasn't dominant last time out. If Kershaw starts last night and gets lit up Roberts gets blown up for not starting Darvish.

    Not Kershaw.

    Wood was the third best pitcher. He should have gone games 3 and 7.

    Morrow was overused throughout the playoffs.

    His constant using the bullpen (which he did all season, and a strategy I hate) left him with Brandon McCarthy to pitch at the end.

    Overused Jansen, which backfired.

    I agree to an extent on McCarthy. Not sure I really agree with Morrow.

    The Jansen thing...I don't know. Yeah I think it harkens back to how Maddon used up Chapman last year. I would agree he probably overused Jansen.

    Sadly not knowledgeable enough on Wood to render an opinion on that.
