Just got home... I debated leaving in the middle of the ninth, watched the Bernadina HR from the concourse since my seat is second row from the field, then ran back down. What a great game. Of course the only thing that dims it is that you sit there knowing we are going to lose the entire time. Makes victories like these a bit less, but still, great game.
I actually called into the post game radio show for the first time. I was baffled by something, and they had no clue either. Because of rather poor bullpen preservation, the folks I sit with had been joking what happens when we are out of arms. I, as did everyone else, obviously felt it would be Livo. It's been long enough since his last start, and it's... He's Livo. That's just who you go to.
Then at the end of the game I look up and walking down the dugout five feet away from me is John Lannan. Turns out he was our pitcher if the game had gone on and Slaten was done. Still doesn't make a ton of sense to me, but thankfully it's a moot point. I'd just be curious of the logic behind at call.
