The last time Jason Schmidt took the mound, the Dodgers had just won the night before, yet most of the focus on the day of Schmidt's game was on something other than the game on the field. The trading deadline was a busy day of wondering, waiting, worrying about some silly little thing that added up to nothing, but it consumed our thoughts for most of the day, then Schmidt went out and confounded us all with six shutout innings.
Fast forward to tonight, Jason Schmidt's next start, again one night after a Dodger win, and most of our focus has not been on the game results, but rather the psychology, machismo, and attempted bravado of a group of athletes and what it all means. Maybe Jason Schmidt can sneak in another gem when nobody expects it.
Tonight, the focus is baseball. Nothing else. That's the story.
