IIRC the World Series is the first time this year Schilling pitched on 3 days rest. So, maybe in Philly where they weren't concerned about making the playoffs little on the Series, he pitched on 3 days rest all the time. Ya got anything to back up your contention? I believe his pitch count was 88 or less when Soriano hit a homer off him in game 7.
Before game 4 the Yankees had never won a WS game when they trailed going into the 8th inning. It was also something like 50 years since any WS team had been able to overcome a 2 or more run deficit in the 9th inning.
Brenly played the odds by bringing in Kim. It was actually a conservative call. Keep in mind that Brenly didn't have a quality middle reliever to bridge into his closer like the Yankees did, although oddly no one questions why they didn't use him instead of over using Rivera. As a result he had no choice but to bring in Kim or risk the entire series.
