Game 59 Unfair Loss Shares

Q: Isn't this post a day late?
A: Yes.
Q: But why?
A: I had nothing to say about that game. It was a forgettable game, in a season that has had so few forgettable games. It happens.
Q: What about Wolf?
A: I find nothing noteworthy about his performance.
Q: Aren't you worried that he was hit hard for a second straight start?
A: No! Well, I was a little bit yesterday, worried I mean, but not at all today.
Q: Why not?
A: Wolf will have bad starts. He wasn't going to go all year with an ERA of 2. Most of the time he'll give the team a chance to win. That's enough. And --- he would only have given up 3 runs if Torre had sensibly pulled him after six innings.
Q: Didn't the bullpen need a rest?
A: Yes, and they got a nice rest yesterday, on the off day. Wolf needed to come out after six innings on Sunday too. There are many needs that must be balanced.
Q: But don't the needs of the many outwiegh the needs of the few?
A: Meaning the bullpen is many, and Wolf is the few, I suppose. The bullpen had to throw 2.2 innings anyway. Wolf was done, and Torre should have seen it. But it's not a big deal.
Q: What about Park?
A: That's just mean, bringing him up. This interview is over.
