Rockies closer Huston Street has a first-hand understanding of what Brad Lidge is going through.
Tracy Ringolsby has the story:
Being a relief pitcher in Major League Baseball, specifically a closer, is the hardest job around. If a starter gives up two runs in the first inning, no big deal…a closer gives up two runs and he is the goat. A closer has to be constantly adjusting his approach or scouts will get a read on what pitches are coming when and they will start to get hit-in the most vulnerable point in the game for the team. Street has been incredible this year…I think most of the time you could tell the hitter what is coming and they still wouldn’t hit it well.
Question to anyone who knows…what are the odds that they postpone Game 3? The forecast looks significantly better for Sunday and Monday…Would tickets for game 3 turn into tickets for game four?
Tickets for game 3 will remain tickets for game 3 and tickets for game 4 will be tickets for game 4 no matter when they are played.
