An interview with Joe Torre
Dodgers manager talks Phillies, middle relief and instant replay
Given the fact that you guys split the season series, can you compare and contrast both teams coming into this series?JOE TORRE: Well, we played well. They've played well. We watched them on TV. I'm sure they did the same with us. But it was weird. We didn't play them too far apart. We swept them in our place and then, you know, about a week or so later they swept us over here. We know they're a good team. They're dangerous. They're dangerous. They're big inning guys. And it all comes down to being able to pitch. And, again, that's controlling the game and that's what we need to do. And when we've had success this year, just like the last series, we pitched really well. But they do a lot of things that get your attention.
