There is so much horrific football being played right now. Have heard many speculate for the reasons why and most have centered on the spread offense in high school and college football where there's no real development happening anymore of the quarterback, offensive line, and defensive back positions anymore. Heard Francesa this week speculate if this continues if a big power conference such as the SEC or Big 10 could go rogue and switch to NFL rules as a recruiting tool.
I don't know... not much of anybody did anything save Murph, Thor and Familia and Familia gives up a HR to Rollins or Utley it's a completely different story. I can't give TC credit he dodged a bullet with deGrom and once he finally brought Syndergaard in he yanked him too soon. Somehow, after it the baseball gods shined down on the NYM today but luck has most to do with it. Which is ok by me.
That's the playoffs. Great pitching usually shuts down great hitting which results in games being won on the margins. Murphy's smarts, deGrom's balls, and Collins plan delivered.
