so much of a surprise that the manager gave him the ball in the first NLCS elimination game. And giving him the ball to start the world series, knowing that he will most likely get two starts. I don't believe it was a surprise, he has been getting better as he's ended the season. This is the man that was left off the 2010 postseason starting rotation because he was terrible. This means a TON to him that he is starting game one.
