Tough Way to Go Out
Congrats to the RedBirds and my good buddy Jon Hoffman on the Cardinals World Series win.
Unfortunately for the rest of the Jews it was tough to watch Ian Kinsler and Scott Feldman come so close to rings again. Kinsler was 2-3 with 1 BB in the final game. Kinsler had a great postseason, posting a line of .308/.438/.431 for an OPS of .868 in 65 ABs. He hit 1 HR, 5 doubles, drove in 11 runs, scored 10 runs, and stole 3 bases. His BB/K ratio was 14/9. He also had the important SB in Game 2.
Feldman pitched 2/3 of an inning and gave up 2 runs on 3 BBs (1 IBB) and 1 HBP. While Feldman had a rough game 6 and 7, Ron Washington showed confidence in him and he should certainly be back to have a solid 2012.
And Let Us Say…Amen.
