YES - die hard purist are starting to sound like the old man telling everyone stay off his yard. Speaking of Old Men, Reggie Jackson
doesn’t want anyone on his grass. When asked if Kershaw and Jansen were still great pitchers, Peter Gammins replied: “yes, which makes what the Astros have done epic.”
Listening to Dodger post-game radio after Game 5, a caller bemoaned it never mattered that Dodgers / Kenley Jansen were 98-1 in save situations or that Kershaw had never lost a game when leading by four or more runs if the Dodgers can’t hold on to win in the postseason......especially when the Astros go with non-closer Lance McCullers Jr. who can come in and close out the Yankees season pitching three innings of relief to close out the ALCS. What the Astros are doing is unprecedented and the baseball watching world is seeing it firsthand
