Craig Breslow’s Playoff Blog

As complicated and complex as this game can be at times, it can also be incredibly simple. If you get a chance to make pitches, you have to make them. And on Thursday, in Game 2 of the World Series, I didn’t…

We were aware that the Cardinals might attempt a double steal when I entered the game. I knew that they had some guys on base that had some speed. I tried to vary my looks, vary my holds, step off the rubber and do what I could to disrupt their timing. But when Pete Kozma took off for third and John Jay went behind him for second, I gave Jarrod Saltalamacchia a pretty tough pitch to handle.

Incredible. Amazing for him to own it in the face of what has to be an incredibly difficult time for him, and amazing how the Internet has changed interactions between athlete and fan.

Good for Breslow.

And it could be cathartic as well - own the blunder, toss it out to sea, and you get to move on....

I'm disappointed he didn't just come out and say "F@CK PETE KOZMA!!"
