Give Joe Torre credit. It only took him until April 20 to break his vow never to use Mariano Rivera for more than one inning. Not that anybody really believed he would keep that promise.
If Kyle Farnsworth can’t be trusted with a four-run lead in the eighth inning, what’s the point in having him?
The first two innings of this game lasted only 24 minutes and I remember wondering if this would be a quick game. But it never is with these two teams.
