Wow. A 2-1 win and we?re going on to meet Arizona in the National League Championship Series.
To get where we?ve always wanted to go, I knew we had to win at least one of these close, low-scoring games. I?ve watched the playoffs on TV for years. You always have close games like this in the postseason.
When we weren?t going on, that?s one of the things I always liked to do, watch the postseason on television. I wouldn?t say I played along with the players in my mind. I didn?t manage along with the manager and second-guess moves. I watched just for the excitement.
You can tell how everybody?s into each pitch, the intensity of it. I?ve always dreamed of doing it myself, with the Colorado Rockies.
Now, I don?t have to watch the NLCS on TV.
