John Franco, how to pitch to Yanks/Marlins


Recommended Posts

I came accross this on NBCSports website. The Mets John Franco discusses how to pitch to both teams and the visual presentation is great !! Enjoy!


If you read any of the articles there on The Series you'll notice a common thread from the sportswriters/commentators who almost to a person, idolize the Yankees, and that is, DON'T PITCH BECKETT IN GAME SIX ! For example, Ken Rosenthal (from the Baltimore Sun), you remember him, he's the one who said Pudge signing with the Marlins was like being exiled to (baseball's) Elba (18th century island prison colony), virtually accuses McKeon of potentially putting Beckett's career on the line.


Here's his comment:

"MIAMI, Oct. 23 ? Marlins manager Jack McKeon is on a roll this postseason, but he might be on the verge of blowing not just the World Series, but also the Marlins? future. McKeon will be making a mistake ? an unnecessary, dangerous mistake ? if he starts righthander Josh Beckett on three days rest in Game 6."
