So I'm not a HUGE baseball fan, but I've been following Barry in this last series with the Astros. Every time they would cut away to ESPN, the opposing pitchers would not pitch anywhere near the strike zone. He finally got a pitch when the 'stros had the game in hand and knocked it out.
So for you folks in Cali, will the Dodgers give him anything in the strike zone so he can break the record? The Dodgers are eliminated in the playoffs so they have nothing to lose or win. Is the rivalry strong enough to walk him all the time, or will Chan Ho groove him one like he did Cal Ripken in the all-star game?
