The TBS crew talked to Tony La Russa in the middle of the fourth inning...
Brian Anderson: Tony, you have managed in 121 career postseason games. Have you ever seen anything like this game, and this series, so far between these two teams?
La Russa: No, not really. It's so unusual because you don't get here without good starting pitchers. Just a freak thing. It's really not fun, to do this to a starting pitcher. On either side. They've gotten you here, both of our clubs. And to struggle like this is tough to watch, but that's the way the game's being played.
John Smoltz: Tony, many people might think this was part of your formula, but really you've just had to react to each game and adjust accordingly.
La Russa: Yeah. Nobody can figure anything out about this game. What you figure, if you get here your starting pitcher is gonna get you to the last third, but you gotta watch. And if all of sudden stuff's not right, you make a change. But it's really tough for Edwin, because he's been great for us, and they were on everything.
As Jayson Stark detailed before Game 6, La Russa and the Cardinals are already setting all sorts of record for pitching changes, innings pitched by relievers in (potentially) a winning effort, etc. This series just isn't something we've ever seen before, and particularly from the Cardinals' perspective.
