BRUCE BOCHY: He's fine. Greene is
fine. He just hasn't played a lot. He had three
at-bats the last game there in Arizona, big for him.
Seen some pitches. He's comfortable with the
hand and actually took some good swings.
Just at this point, you know, Blum has
been doing a good job. That's why he's out there.
Is Boomer your guy for game two?
BRUCE BOCHY: David Wells is pitching
Again, what went into the decision
of Boomer going tomorrow instead of game
BRUCE BOCHY: It's really his spot. He's
on normal rest, and, you know, he's a guy that has
a lot of experience, and so we had this pretty much
locked in at Peavy would go game one and David
Did Chris's record on the road figure
into this also?
BRUCE BOCHY: Well, more so Chris, we
just wanted to give him a little more rest. He's fine.
He's good to go, but you know, the way it was set
up here, we want to keep those two on their normal
Bruce, when making the call on the
relievers, you're going to put on the roster did
you weigh heavily with experience?
BRUCE BOCHY: That played a huge part.
You know, with Adkins and Sweeney and Cassidy,
Williamson, you know, it wasn't an easy decision.
But Chan Ho is the guy, he's done a lot for us this
year, too. He's pitched in the bullpen and he's also
a guy we think can give us multiple innings, with
Rudy, we think he's been throwing the ball well and
he has experience, too.
So they weren't easy decisions, but, you
know, we feel comfortable with those two out there.
This is the third time you've gone
against Tony La Russa in your time and his
time as managers. What do you think of his job
with this team the last 10, 11 years?
BRUCE BOCHY: I can't be honest. He's
sitting over there.
No, I said this yesterday. I couldn't have
more respect for Tony La Russa. I said that he's
going to go down as one of the best managers in
all time. That's what I think about the man. He's
brilliant. Certainly been tough on us.
I know it and, you know, you have your
work cut out and it's a good ball club. Tremendous
manager, and should be a great series. And it's
always a challenge, but, you know, this is what
you're playing for. Both clubs, starts in Spring
Training, seven weeks, 162 games. Now you are
getting a chance to play here in the post-season.
We're excited about it and we know we're going to
have to play our best ball to beat them.
