NLDS Game 1 postgame thread

some stuff i learned in Game 1:

  • adrian gonzalez can't hit a curveball
  • russell branyan can't hit a curveball . . . . except for that one curveball he hit for a triple
  • dave roberts is gonna be on the cardinals next year
  • ronnie belliard appears to have a great postseason attitude -- seems to enjoy being in the pressure situations
  • la russa likes rookies -- he entrusted ty johnson, not flores, with 4 critical outs in the 7th + 8th, then called on wainwright (not the more experienced looper) to retire piazza in the 8th
Valatan'll have the pleasure of writing that one up tomorrow; see y'all thursday.
