Does the name Mike Celizic mean anything to you guys? He's a typist for MSNBC.com, who sometimes types about sports. I can't remember if we've ever written anything about him before...check the archives. There might be one or two musings on his talents. I honestly can't remember. Anyway, he just wrote an article for MSNBC.com called -- I kid you not --Glavine Finally Erases His Playoff Demons.
As in: Tom Glavine
As in, the guy who clinched the 1995 World Series with this line:
8 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 8 Ks.
And the guy who won Game Two of that same WS with this line:
6 IP, 2 R, 3 H, 3Ks.
The guy with a 2.47 World Series ERA. The guy who has given up (pay attention to this) 33 hits in 58.1 WS innings.
That guy. That guy finally erased his playoff demons with a Game Two Division Series win over the Dodgers.
I know he's had some crappy outings in the playoffs. I know that he's like 13-15 lifetime in the postseason. But when you play in the postseason every year for 32 consecutive seasons, you'll have some crappy outings. Whitey Ford was 10-8 in the postseason, and had an ERA over 8.00 in his final World Series. Think he had any playoff demons?
