Does this show the Braves are really reaching now? Should the Cubs counter with Wood on three days? And if it does go back to Atlanta, if you're Bobby Cox, do you start Hampton on three days or try Horatio Ramirez?
A two-one series advantage is just that: an advantage. No way Woody should go; Clement can close it out at home, and if you fail, you still have Wood on four days rest to go at Turner. The Cubs don't have to win Saturday. The Braves do. Thus the desperation.
No team in this world can beat Arizona in a 5 game series? Unless my memory is really faulty, didn't Arizona need a game 5 comeback to survive round 1 last season. Get into the bullpen late in game 1 or 2 and Arizona can get beat in a best of 5.
