Three More Questions Sparked By Tim Kurkjian's Five Questions

Tim Kurkjian over at ESPN.com recently published his five questions about the Phillies/Dodgers NLCS, and as usual it's a decent read (despite the fact he picks the Phillies in seven games). In summary, Kurkjian thinks the Dodgers' bullpen and bench are assets, the Phillies' left-handed hitters and pitching are assets, and the suspension of Manny Ramirez helped the Dodger kids grow up to be big boys.

What was also interesting was the language Kurkjian used to assess two of the Dodgers' strengths:

1. How good is the Dodgers' bullpen? It is very good and very deep. [...]

3. How good is the Dodgers' bench? It is very good and very deep.

So I have some more questions on which I hope Timmy K can opine:

  • How would you describe James Joyce's Ulysses?
  • What do you think of Barry White's voice?
  • Can you put into words your love for your wife?

We're waiting for your answers, Tim!

The answer to the last one is probably "very quick and to the point"

It's a good bullpen, and thorough.

Do I think Kurkjian needs to use a thesaurus? Well, I'd have to say yes.
Do I think it would make him a better writer?
Well, I'm not in a position to say that.

I listened to Jim Tracy's post-game news conference last night. He gave his standard question/answer response to a question about strike three to Utley in the 9th inning.
He said something like, "Do I think the ball was up far enough to be a strike? The answer is yes. Was it out over the plate? I wasn't in a position to see if was inside or outside from my angle."
