So Randy Knorr, Davey Johnson's bench coach, admitted during a radio interview in Canada (590 The Fan in Toronto) that his only regret about NLDS Game 5 was that Pete Kozma got to hit in the 9th with Jason Motte on deck. Via Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post:
"The only thing I kick myself about was, we had a chance to walk Kozma to
get Cruz up to hit to get Motte out of the game at a tie ballgame
before Kozma got the two-out hit to drive in two runs. I kind of looked back at
him and said, ‘What do you want to do here?’ I think the whole dugout
was so shocked that they scored the two runs, anyway. Because we thought
we had a good chance of winning. It happened so fast." (Randy Knorr, via Nationals Journal, 10/18/2012)
*sigh* Bet you a dollar Davey Johnnson still doesn't give a rat's ass.
Time to move on. Go Giants. Or Tigers.
