    Garner's thinking is this... he'd rather have Clemens go on 3 days rest, than having to a.) fly cross country to San Fran to play an afternoon game with Clemens on 4 days rest . AND b.) if they were to win that game, having to fly cross country to Atlanta to play another afternoon game on Tuesday.

    Of course, you could gamble that the team will come out and win even if Backe is on the mound... but you don't gamble on things like making the playoffs... you gotta get there before you can gamble.

    He already said he'd manage it as if it were "tied" if they were one-up going into Sunday.

    Agree fully.

    I'd throw clemens out there regardless of the outcome of the giants game.... I'd rather win and knock them out then gamble with backe or someone else.

    I love this team.

    the man who has been doing most of the clutch hitting for us lately has been Baggy, but since he isn't getting it done tonight other guyd have stepped up to do the job.

    Biggio, Kent....4HR's....amazing. Also, it's great to see Eric in there and hitting.

    I know and he makes complete sense; sometimes i just can't help but think about a Game 1 matchup.

    Not really. He just had to run down a potential gapper, but didn't have to dive or jump.

    He made it look pretty easy.

    I'd be suprised to see him pitch the 8th... especially if the Astros play add on.

    OR

    Perhaps, Garner wants to save the bullpen for full strength tommorow, in the likelihood that Clemens can only go 5 innings at the most.

    Oswalt has only thrown 90 pitches... but I'm assuming that he should be starting game 2 no matter what, right? (meaning on 3 days rest)

    The bullpen worked 7 innings yesterday, perhaps thats having some influence. Or Garner wants to make sure we seal this victory.

    Morgan goes yard! 6 homeruns today. Brownie said it tied the club record for homeruns in a game.
