Excerpt: "Then There Were Six"

"So far in this postseason, the team that hits more homers in a game is 10-4. The team that gets more extra-base hits is 11-4. We have more instances of failed sacrifice bunting being a key moment in a game -- Josh Reddick, Matt Joyce, Juan Uribe -- than we do of successful bunts being turning points. We have many more instances of a hitter squaring up a ball and making the difference. It's time to let go of a model of winning baseball that no longer fits. Ball go far, team go far."
