True that

I'm surprised they pulled the plug on Cole so quick but understand why they were comfortable turning it over to the bullpen.
Hurdle may get some heat for not keeping Cole in to bunt in the 6th with a man on first but not much - the rookie justified Hurdle's bigger decision to give him the start (while AJ apparently pitched a fit and said if I can't start I am not pitching at all tonight - sad note on which Burnett probably winds up his career in Pittsburgh)

Fox is thrilled a Dodgers-Red Sox World Series is in play - Super Bowl draws ratings no matter who is playing - baseball not so much
