Echoes of 1985

Concerning the NLCS game between the Dodgers and Phillies last night, I have to gather that Joe Torre didn't know that you don't put a fireball right-handed pitcher up against a left-handed power hitter when a playoff game is on the line. Jonathan Broxton, like Tom Niedenfuer 23 years ago, was the poor choice and Matt Stairs was fortunate to play the role of Jack Clark.

I wonder if Torre mouthed "maybe we should walk Stairs" right before the big hit.
