Game 149 Open Thread: September 17, 2007

kendrick thompson
8-4, 4.02 6-5, 5.05

these are two pretty similar pitchers; they don't strike many guys out, they give up too many baserunners and extra-base hits, but they survive by throwing it over the plate and keeping the ball (mostly) on the ground. kendrick has prevented home runs more reliably than thompson this year, but otherwise they've got pretty comparable track records. the phils need this game pretty badly; they're a game and a half out in the wild-card chase.

ran across this interview with whitey herzog in a minnesota paper; mildly interesting read. but the fact-checker screwed up the name of the reliever who gave up that grand slam to hrbek in game 6; it was ken dayley, not bill dawley.
