Gotta love the mind games of the post season.  Nothing like facing the same team for up to seven games to try to get in their head.  Or is he?  Beat writer Andrew Baggarly Tweeted that Cain will throw inside on Holliday, under the guise of getting him out.  But if one gets away… Cain said he won’t be timid about throwing inside to Holliday, but only as part of plan to get him out. “If one gets away, one gets away.” — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) October 16, 2012 In case you missed the play in question: clip?id=espn:8510724 (about at the 30s mark). What will be interesting is the reaction of the teams. This is a 1-1 series, likely to go six, maybe seven games. Who is the first to act aggressively and find themselves taking a shower for this game or more? How quick is the umpire to warn the benches? Or does this turn into a wrestling match in which the participants hug and jostle but nobody makes a move? Tune in tomorrow afternoon (5EDT, 2PDT) to find out! Let’s hope it’s not a Pedro vs. Zimmer matchup: Dave (@lhd_on_sports) The post Matt Cain, mind games or gamesmanship or both? appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
