In the third inning of NLCS Game 7, the Giants loaded the bases with no one out. The Cardinals wanted a strikeout. They wanted to make a pitching change to get the strikeout. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny went to reliever Joe Kelly.
The second guessing on Twitter was swift and immediate. There were a lot of would-be managers asking where rookie sensation Trevor Rosenthal and his 100-m.p.h. fastball was.
Kelly was hit around, albeit with more than a few odd hits and bounces, and the Giants opened up a substantial lead.
When Rosenthal did come in the game in the bottom of the fifth, the Giants couldn't handle him. he threw 13 pitches, 10 for strikes, and struck out the side.
There are a lot of coulda shoulda wouldas in this game so far (and three more innings, mind you), but that could be one of them that will get talked up a little bit.
