Los Angeles Dodgers win World Series, but also become super spreaders of the virus?

"They won with a powerful lineup. But did they risk turning the world Siri's into a corona virus super spreader into a super spreader event? It Let's let's talk about the good things for a Shall we then Los Angeles Dodgers win the World Series first time since 1988 and had been a long time coming in a lot of failed a lot of false starts at the beginning of this decade in terms of winning So many division titles and just sputtering in the playoffs, losing to the infamous Houston Astros in the 2017 world, serious getting beaten by the Red Sox in 2018, and this time they were great. They were fantastic. Even Clayton Kershaw that everyone talked about couldn't get the monkey off of his back. He comes out and wins. Two games in the series, and it was great for them. I think that they they did it the way that great teams are supposed to. They scored more than half of their runs with two outs. Everyone's looking for all that clutch. All those clutch performances and the Dodgers really did come through. They were They were fantastic. Even with the crazy game for 87 collapse that we thought was going to turn the Siri's around in a different direction tied it, too. But at the very At the next turn, The Dodgers come back and they never look back. They are champions, and they very much deserved it. Even though it was an eight game season. It was very much Before playoffs and everything else. Yeah, it's it's a legit championship. But but but but but Justin Turner removed from the game because it was positive for Corona virus. He returned for a celebration often mask lists hugging people. He sat next to Dave Roberts, the manager who is a cancer survivor, and therefore more at risk. How How do you finish that sentence? How do we characterize this? Well, he characterizes as a massive massive Hey, irresponsibility on the part of Justin Turner on the part of the Dodgers and certainly on the part of Major League baseball, even though Major League Baseball has tried to get out in front of this by laying the blame at the feet of Justin Turner, and it is his responsibility. However, I have a hard time believing that that he was allowed to play with an inconclusive test, so they took him off of the field after the test was Was found to be positive. But if you have an inconclusive test, how do you let him play in the first place? And so everyone's going to take responsibility for this, But this is what we're seeing across the board were seeing this at the University of Florida with all of their positive test. We're seeing it with the big 10 as well on the Big 10 had made the decision earlier not to play, and then they got bullied by the president into playing, and now they're canceling games. This is the thing Scott we talked about this months ago. Everyone saw this coming, but this country has just made a decision not to care about it. And, of course, the discussion of the weak. Ah, Kevin Cash, the Tampa manager, pulling Blake smell Blake Snell, Tampa Cy Young Award winning pitcher after he struck out nine after just 5.5 innings because of analytics. Tampa lost with almost the next pitch as this decision become emblematic of these over analysed times. Well, absolutely. But I had a revelation during this world serious guy and I think I've always known it, but it it wasn't crystallized until watching this. I don't watch baseball or I don't watch sports for wins and losses. I watch sports for competition. And this this thing they did not let Blake smell compete. And this happened at a time. When look at who we lost during this baseball season where you've lost the great picture, Whitey Ford, you lost the great competitor, Bob Gibson. And these players, they're legends come from competition, and if you're not going to let a player compete, what is the purpose of being a Cy Young Award winner? You're not even going to be allowed to have these classic championship moments. If they pull you out of the game. This is why we watch in baseball. At least the Tampa Bay Rays took that away from us. Howard Bryant of ESPN Well said, Thanks so much. Thank you.

World Series Game 6: Rays decision to pull Blake Snell immediately backfires

"Kevin cash taking up. Blake, Snell in the sixth inning last night with one and one out and a one nothing lead snow had been brilliant to that point no runs no walks nine strikeouts. The move backfired immediately the dodgers got two quick runs off Nick Anderson added another later in the game on a home run by Mookie Betts and won the world series. We'll bond. Can you defend what cash did? No And I don't WanNa hear anybody else tried defended either because some things are just indefensible and this is one of them Tony I I'm offended by what I saw last night just somebody who grew up on baseball whose I love and sport was baseball played baseball pitch and just offensive. So numbers are so important to you Kevin cash that you can't use your eyes which is supposed to be professionally trained and steeled, and you've been benched coach and manager then all these days and you don't know when you need to leave the guy alone you. WanNa, take the game away from the players take the game away from a starting pitcher whose lights out who the other team is. Now, not afraid of going Oh my God is shaking their heads and you don't have the baseball since in you to leave him alone and ride your good fortune to have this guy going this. Well, totally I was in contact via text with a couple of former recent former notable major league baseball players, and they were as startled about this development as I was and I just couldn't. No. There's no defending it. Yeah I'M GONNA. Give it a shot at defending human I'm going to preface it by saying if we don't learn from history, we're always going to be doomed to repeat it Kevin. Cash. Has Seen Blake Snell. He has managed Blake Snell for years. Now he's seen them all year. He hasn't gone through the sixth all year I'm going to read from my notes Ziara in these playoffs in the first four innings where he's been great as one point three, five from then on it's twelve point five, six last week Snell no hit the dodgers for four and two thirds and Then, in rapid order walk homer walk single and cash has seen all of this the last guy up before he gave him, the Hook was the ninth patron, the order, and he hit a rope to center field, and now at this point you've got bets and you've got SEGER coming up for a third time. The mistake isn't Yanking Snell to me the mistake is putting in Anderson Innocence the wrong guy in the regular season he's lights out but in the playoffs is over five and Mike and his last six appearances, he's allowed to run I I I understand that Kevin? Is. An. Easy target and a totally legitimate target. I just think in this case, he had seen Snell all year and the hulk wasn't as bad as what he did home. You're not playing lifetime achievement. You're playing the damn game tonight right? You is your sense of everything. This is your livelihood I don't care what he did last week. This guy has given up one hard hit ball maybe a second heart. It Ball. Alright. So yes, you got what you're saying about bringing a guy in who's been lit up lately I don't WanNa go that far I don't care who he had going warmed up. You have got a guy on the mound that has the other people in the other Doug. If you're a manager the time we know you're watching them to and they are shaking their heads when they walk back to. The dugout he has stymied them. If you're not smart if all you're doing is playing probability Tony, then go work at the win in Vegas I don't WanNa see you near a baseball diamond. So let me go back into this for a second because it's something we'll have to live with if he never wins forever in the way that great little does the way the Darryl bevill does. Making these what appear to be bonehead calls but I would tell you Dave Roberts said the same thing with Clayton Kershaw he let him pitched to two batters in the sixth inning whenever it was and he knew that Ziara after a certain point was bad and he took them out to protect him and to make sure the dodgers won that game I think managers do this I don't. You know I'm not crazy about analytics I don't WanNa take an anti intellectual viewpoint here that I think that certain people it's absurd managers rely too much on numbers and not enough on you but I think the mistake was who he put in not what we took out. One of the guys I was texting with last night we might be said half the front office is in baseball would have done this and it's not just a managers front office last night was bad night for Baseball Tony. You could say baseball's we at five. We know better than somebody even most cases who's twenty five years old. It's a sad night for baseball that a guy pitching a masterpiece. What are you take? You defendant Kevin Casting Colfax or Gibson? That's the kind of performance. This guy was spinning last night and he took them out and it's a sad night. It's a sad night for baseball I don't care how anybody who wants to defend it or painted even Kevin cast I don't care what he has to say.

"kershaw" Discussed on First Take

"Or I'm going to humble myself get better and bring a championship to the team into the city that I love and that's exactly what he did. pitchers frequently have second primes. Because of what you just mentioned I remember wrong Gigiri Lefty Yankees Ace who said I'm just going to get guys out with hard cheese ninety, five, mile an hour fastball later minor almost fast and he became. A finesse pitcher as he went on right frequently you see this was great starting pitchers. They're amazing. They take a little dip and the really Great Ones Hall of famers adjust and get amazing again, and the fact that he did that in the world series like that pitcher did that in the world series as part of his story and what can you be except for happy for today? No Question L. A., two titles, Sixteen Days Apart Jeff I'm not gonNA lie. Kinda, shocked we actually made it here. We had a lot of questions how the season start and you're on the show with everything happening down in Miami and ultimately done and it was exciting. So Jeff, thank you so much. We'll talk to you soon. Thanks for having me goes always appreciate it. I'm pretty sure new house might be haunted. What makes you say that the furniture is levitating on the ghost welcome home? Yeah that's that's spooky. You know what's really scaring. Missing out on Geico for help with homeowners and renters insurance who makes it easy to see a bunch great. You're not sticking around. The bar is just getting started. Guy Week call today and see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be. Seasons heating up and who better to talk about it. Then the one and only mouth of the south out the whole country when we're talking college football one and only Paul. Finebaum. Paul always good to see you sir, and can you guess where we're starting? I'm guessing Trevor Large. There you go. So Trevor Lawrence initially had said that he was leaving school after the season, and now when he was asked about Ed, here's his response. We'll just have to see how things unfold There's a lot of factors in that but Honestly just really. Playing this year. But everything I have into it gnarly folks on next year whether. I leave or stay whatever always have the option to do either one. Of kind of a mindset that I'm GONNA move on. But who knows there's a lot of things that could happen. I feel like he's changed his tune. What's your reaction? I don't think anything has changed I think Trevor Lawrence is having a good time in college and he's having an even better time getting people like us to react and especially overreact what he saying I mean he he knows what's going on in New York he knows the tabloids are going crazy with every. Utterance that he makes. But Trevor Lawrence is not staying at Clemson. He didn't have anything to prove last year after a national championship, and if he wins this year or if he loses or doesn't make any difference what happens he has even less to prove will be the number one pick in the draft and he's leaving whether it's the jets were anywhere else. So I think my advice to everyone is to calm down quit taking Trevor Lords literally and just accept the fact that this is his last year at Clemson and we'll likely poor kid but likely New, York jets next year. Meantime Ohio State is back and so is justin fields. This is what take a listen to what our own Greg mcelroy had to say about the two quarterbacks, fields and Trevor Lawrence. This might actually be a two-horse race at the top of the twenty twenty, one nfl draft just fields goes out is remarkably efficient. He's twenty at twenty one. So a big ten record in the process, there's two things I wanted to see from Justin fields. This year one really anticipate throws and to really throw the ball with the more conviction and more often on time he did both on Saturday that's a sign of things to come. It's going to be a fascinating race towards the draft next year that was yesterday on get up what's your reaction Paul to two comments? Well I think Greg knows a little bit more about quarterbacks than I do and he did play for the jets. So he has some. Understanding of what trevor is going through but in relation to Justin, field I I think he will be a contender but ultimately as great as he is and I and I think he's a fantastic quarterback. He's not going to supplant Trevor Lawrence or the number one pick. And Trevor. Didn't. Regressive. The last year I always felt he. He regrets because he was bored There was somebody that so many expectations of him he tried to do things he didn't need to do, and some of that was because of the schedule it can be boring. Especially, in the early part of the year big quarterback in the ACC for Clemson, you're not playing anyone this year, the schedule will be more difficult. He'll go to Notre Dame and a week or two, and that's a challenge. You'll see some other tough teams along the way so I think Trevor Lawrence. Focused and locked in, and he was a year ago. Well, I got a statement I Paul and then I got a question statement is that for me it was never an issue of him staying and Clemson, we've pretty much know he's leaving I think he just wants to make sure to let the jets. No I don't want to play the you. So let's make sure let let's try to work out a way for me to get. The hell away from you because I don't need to be playing with you especially Adam, gates now they need to fire him and get Greg Williams or somebody else in there and we can do that. But let me get to you about Trevor Lawrence in this God when you talk about being bored because of lack of competition, I've seen a guy that completed sixty five percent of his passes then he improved upon that last year at the. Totality and then obviously this year's complete seventy percent of his passes got seventeen touchdowns, just two interceptions but because of the conditions under which everybody's been working with the season, how much do you think if at all that may fact in the looking at whatever progress or lack thereof, he has made the season because of all the conditions on the which college football has been taking place this year. Yeah, there's no doubt everyone is playing at a at a slightly lower level but because of the pandemic Stephen I think you're seeing a little bit more on the defensive side I, was talking to Kirby Smart, yesterday the Georgia coach and he said you know tackling his terrible this year because. The fundamentals. Were we're not there there wasn't a spring ball everyone's so concerned about numbers. So you're not seeing quite the intensity at practice, but I think trevor it looks really good to me. But sometimes, it's hard to tell when you're playing syracuse. Syracuse play pretty well but Syracuse is a team that the week before lost to liberty. So I want to judge Trevor Lawrence same for Justin. Fields. By what they do against the best teams? That's when that's when the competition is intense. Just run of the Mill Crummy ACC or big ten team and I think we'll see that in a week and a half. When Trevor Lawrence goes to Notre Dame, that's very difficult place to play even in twenty twenty Notre Dame's defense is quite good and then obviously, we'll see him in the playoffs. Justin fields is going to be judged by Saturday night I know what happened to Penn State Against Indiana, but don't let that fool you. That's this is still a very difficult game. And we'll start to see whether there is much separation between the two over the next two weekends..

Los Angeles Erupts As Dodgers Win First World Series Championship In 32 Years

"I WANNA zoom out here now on the dodgers as this franchise because this was their first championship in thirty two years and I was watching Dave Roberts and putting aside all of the Cova. Complications it was hard not to feel something for that guy and it was hard to feel something for this organization N. This fan base and this city. So what did you make of the dodgers finally getting over? This. Particular Hump, you know I think that Dave Roberts has been a guy who at times has been rightly maligned for his decision making but the decision making that will stick with me from this postseason has to do with two pitchers Clayton Kershaw in Julio. Arenas Dave Roberts twenty four hours before he won a world series championship got booed by a crowd that was almost entirely dodger fans at a neutral site stadium. It was a really weird thing. This guy who's got all these supposed demons and October's getting a standing ovation coming off the field. For for people who think he should have stayed in the game it was just a very bizarro situation and you know what I think Dave? Roberts. made the right move there. And people are always going to say process over outcome process over outcome raised died on that mantra and. Dave Roberts lived on it. He ended up going with Julio Arias for the last three innings of the clincher in the S. In the last three innings of the clincher in the world series he had Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen, his two rocks out in the bullpen ready and willing to go and he said now I'm a stick with a kid who's pitching. He stuck with the guy who looked good and that is one thing that Kevin cash did not do. And there's an argument to be made. That they lost the world series because of that. And then you look at Julio. Maria Standing There Austin Barnes catching that call third strike in grabbing the ball with his right hand and stuffing in his back pocket. That's history in his back pocket right there and the celebration that came afterward and all of the madness and weirdness and oddity of two thousand twenty being wrapped up in such a perfect though.

"kershaw" Discussed on The Stephen A. Smith Show

"A, lot to do I got my NFL power rankings coming up I WANNA get back into. Clayton Kershaw and Wilt Chamberlain and Peyton manning by the way. So I'm comparing him to and I gotta get back into this James Harden thing because the way Raja presented it in no doubt I was not able to tell you what I was really thinking it's your. Fault they say don't point a finger at someone because if you do three fingers pointing back at you but as I tell you look at how on the simulcast when I point my finger, I lay my other fingers like this not no finger pointing at me and if there were people around him, they would scattershot just hit people around me instead of me. Yet, clearly, it wasn't your fault since we broke the previous segment and had a short no doubt that was no way. You're I, like the sound of my voice. So sue me listen I Clayton Kershaw. He talks a six dominant innings as the dodgers beat the raise six innings nowadays with one run and eight strikeouts. It's really really good. Kevin Cash. said. About Kershaw he was dealing. Dave Roberts the obviously the dodgers manager, who is my slide, my enemy Dave Robertson I R- enemies. He didn't know about it, but he knows about it now because he came on this show and we had a very nice talk. But when he thought it was like all good at the end I had to let them know we our enemies you stole that based on my Yankees Four. And the Red Sox. Anyway, why Dave Roberts kept Kershaw into the sixth? Well I. Thought he was on the baseball. Well so he was going to go back out there until we started adding on some more runs but I felt good the way on the baseball. Shut up. Dave. Roberts a hit you. Fully for him. Raj. The Yankees would have won four and probably beaten the cardinals to. Anyway. The point about Kershaw is this. He has an argument as the greatest regular season pitcher who ever lived in the modern era post dead era meaning nine, hundred and twenty, and later nine, hundred twenty later it's about one hundred years already. A century. No starting pitcher had a lower euro for his career. For his career is the basically the lowest era in history. And it's not just as I mentioned like there. Great lefties great starting to like Steve. Carlton who this season in that season he was as good as anyone ever but they were spread out in between he was pretty good. He had he had a great season here. Very good one there. Of course he's an excellent pitcher. He's never terrible, but it's not like the concentrated prime of say Sandy Colfax. We're Pedro Martinez. We go. Oh my God, those five years. Kershaw had a prime colfax or pedro or someone like that. But he's also had longevity more like I mean not yet because he's not done yet. But more like Steve Carlton Randy Johnson. He has a really good argument. He's the greatest regular cast by the time his career is over he'll have a really good argument. Potentially be able to see how the next few years play out that he's the greatest starting pitcher who ever lived in the regular season no well says that argument Wilt Chamberlain regular season. He might be the best player ever Peyton, manning regular season. Football. Player of all time. How about in the playoffs anyone really still talk about Wilt Chamberlain or Peyton manning the greatest of all time. No Roger. You're out of your mind. No, they never come up in the conversation we talk about the greatest different basketball. We'll it's all over. Well, Jordan's actually ahead of but even even in the stats but. All you have to like. When you talk about the greatest ever in basketball, it comes down to is it Jordan or whoever's hot at the time like Colby and his prime now Lebron? Is If who had the greatest careers Kareem in the modern era or Bill Russell in the premodern era right? When does your will? Because he did he he won two championships by the way. But not enough to compete at the very top of the sport. If you had a mount rushmore of the NBA will even be on it because Jordan and beyond it and Lebron had beyond it and Bill Russell a beyond it and I think Kareem would probably rounded out. Peyton manning best football player. I've ever seen in the regular season I saw Lawrence Taylor and his prime and Aaron Rodgers and whoever else you WanNa talk about. But in the regular season no one watching Peyton and Brady who were contemporaries ever said you know Tom Brady is better than Peyton manning in the regular season because he wasn't Peyton manning was better than Tom Brady easily by the way better than everybody. That it mattered most in the playoffs peyton manning what? That's the same guy he's terrible. Peyton manning eventually over time got over it and started. Quarterbacking better and while he was still a beast won a super bowl and then at the end of his career when he wasn't good anymore one, another one. So peyton manning a wilt chamberlain don't go down in history as players who never won championships. They got that monkey off their back, but they also don't go down in the. Debates as who is who is the greatest to ever do it. Clayton Kershaw is in that. Peyton. Manning Wilt Chamberlain Conversation. And hopefully, he'll get the monkey off his back in these playoffs in this world series so far so good I mean really if if he took the ball three times and did what he did in game seven instead of game one, that would go a long way, right? But even if he wins. A world series or two. He'll be in that peyton manning wilt Chamberlain category, and for those who would say as Jeff Passan did today I take? Oh, how that's really a bad thing to be. That's a bad argument to make that. That's no good I understand that. But what I mean is if you are the best who ever lived. Normally. But you're not in the greatest of all time conversation because when it mattered most choke too much you don't want to be on that list. I mean Payton Manning Wilt Chamberlain's a great list to be on Kershaw wins the world series run down pitches. Well, as he did in Game One, he'll join that kind of list. More than I ever did. More than the vast majority of people who ever lived on planet Earth have never achieved at that level. But it's not the greatest of all time conversation it. That's real. I mean like I love to tell you I hate being this guy that today because I want. Excellent performance by Clayton, kershaw understand the dodgers. Sandy Koufax was on four world series championships, champion teams. But two of them he wasn't really the Great Colfax anymore two of them in the sixties when they were in La he was they won a lot because him. He pitched fifty seven world series innings I. thought it was forty something. I looked fifty-seven had a point nine, five year. And his dodgers won two championships with him as the ace. Fernando Valenzuela in one, thousand, nine, hundred, one set.

Now we talk about the World Series. Game one. You start with us. Accounts on Lee is just one game. It doesn't matter that much in the big picture. It's only one game. However. I'm going to disagree with that statement because the feeling that one gets watching Game one of the World Series from the Dodgers side of things. It's like hitting a two team parlay. It doesn't seem like a one win situation. Night, so don't undersell the importance of a game one win for Los Angeles and I'll tell you why. Because the Dodgers winning a Clayton Kershaw playoffs start As easy as a B C. 123. Is not something that happens very often, right. You feel like you dodged a bullet when you win a Kershaw game in the playoffs in a big play off game, Kershaw has been the dog with fleas in the postseason. And while many of my colleagues on television like to downplay Clayton Kershaw's missteps on radio, we don't do that We don't his World Series resume coming in. I would have him in the bread line. If that was his resume. What into an E? R. A of over five he had pitched in 26 2 3rd innings given up 16 earned runs. Over four starts in five games. But on this night, it reminded and voice in my head. It was Dick Stockton, who told me years ago stats tell you what has happened. They don't tell you what's going to happen. And that was a vintage regular season type of Kershaw performance. And you see that in a big play off game as often as you see a white whale swimming around the ocean, right? Clayton Kershaw got 38 swings. 19. Mrs. He had a whiff rate of 50%. Now the stat geeks tell us that that is the highest Of Clayton Kershaw's career, whether it be the postseason or the regular season that half the time it was S O matter, Miss. That is what's known as flexing your muscles, and it wasn't just Kershaw. Cody Bellenger, Mookie Betts. Max Muncy all had big days. The conga line kept moving. You keep pressure on your opponent 10 hits, they got seven walks. The Dodgers drew seven walks and, more importantly than that. They actually hit when they had runners in scoring position. They batted 3 57 on this day with runners in scoring position. They were five out of 14 follow the ways and is a key. You follow the wisdom often, American legend Will Rogers You never get a second chance to make a first impression. The Dodgers they made their first impression. Now you've got to back that up. You have backed that up in Game two in Game three, but you only played one game and the Dodgers the more talented team they didn't play down to their competition. They played like they were the superior opponent in this matchup. We certainly hope that continues were slightly biased on this now. Part B. If you would like to knit pick That's one of these. We get paid to do hear on the radio. Always to pick apart things in micro analyze. Dave Roberts fell back into some old analytical principles. We were hoping that his gut feeling managerial move. The other night would continue. It did not in this game, managing Clayton Kershaw. For Dave Roberts is like juggling hand grenades. One wrong move one wrong move and your head gets blown off. And I understand partially what Roberts is thinking. Because when I'm watching Clayton Kershaw, I'm thinking, OK, Here's where it all falls apart goes to hell right here, right. This is going to be the inning. It all goes to crap. In a playoff situation. But on this night Kershaw he was dealing He'd only thrown 78 pitches. Through six innings. And ah, very effective there. The Rays hitters were completely flummoxed against Kershaw as we gave you some of the numbers there of 50% with weight, and despite the Dodgers having a huge advantage there up eight tow one. They, Roberts Arbitrarily said. That's it. We're going to take you out of the game. I'd rather take you out of half inning. Too early, then a half inning too late. So that brought in Dillon Florio, who wasn't good and then and then Roberts panic because the Rays attempted the pin shit G may enjoy And so Roberts ran out of the dog and I got to make a change. I

"Rod Cody bellinger hit what amounted to be the game winning homer during game seven of the. And probably separated his shoulder. Later, when he was celebrating with his team manager Dave Roberts conceded bellinger's not one hundred percent. He could have issue swinging the bat with that bump shoulders. Here's the question is if foul or fair to say, the dodgers will be better off sent him bellinger to the bench during the series. That's foul to that is a foul. I mean, this guy's a game changer I mean the plays that he makes them the outfield and he's already ran into a couple of them in the playoffs they ran into a big wouldn't just the other day you gotTa have been there. My only question is what's wrong. With Enrica, Hernandez the guy that gave him at four on they need to sit him down. He's letting too many ways McCoy, balance your. Line of the dodgers as talented. But this was rookie of the year and you also was an MVP and another thing speaking from a professional standpoint as the hitting coach when you have a guy that has an injury like that to the shoulder he kind of slows everything down swing blue shorter he gets off tonight in my opinion he's up something special in their series that would be corey bellinger.

Los Angeles Dodgers Game Tonight

"Story game, one of the world's Siri's between our Tampa Bay Rays and the Los Angeles Dodgers. It kicks off at eight tonight. Yesterday we had raised baseball insider from 95 3 w. D. A Steve Kearney on to give us a preview from the res perspective. So today I wanted to have someone on to take us inside the Dodgers organization, and there's only one person you want for something like that. Joining me now on the hotline is Andy McCullough, former baseball writer for the L. A. Times and now senior writer for the athletic You can follow his reporting on Twitter at by McCullough, Andy. Thank you so much for taking some time to explain to raise fans what they're up against in this Siri's and let's start with the fact that Dodgers have been a contender for years Now. What's held them back from winning a world serious title? Well, kind of. Yeah, I mean, I guess the short answer was 2017. They played it. He may have been cheating on me. You know, in 2018. They played a team who was better than them talk to also were subsequently accused of, you know, fine feeling and punished for it legally. And then last year, they kind of like bungled their pitching set up in the NLDS in law. Do you know the team that won the World Series? The national? I mean, I guess nothing kept him back. I guess if you wantto concede all that stuff is their death players have not played At their best in the highest levels. Moment, of course here, including Challenger did not hit particularly well in your courses. 18 Clayton Kershaw on Kendall Jansen and had some high profile sort of, you know failures in the post season, So I mean, it's really just, you know, they're superstars haven't played, you know as well as they could have, And that's really how you win in October is your best players have really, really well. Tell us about the changes the Dodgers made going into this season to try to finally take that next step. I mean, they traded for movie death, and that is a big one. I mean, yeah, like it's simple, but it's also pretty profound. The effect he had on the team. I mean, you just thought in the end, he didn't even hit particularly well. But in the field I mean Indian 5 67. He made a really like like game changing eventually reason saving catches. Huge defensive, please. When you add a player like that reduces the pressure on guys like Seger and Gallinger, and just because we know they know that you're gonna have some sort of value added that that way, and so that's the big thing is that they were the best team in baseball without you know, last year and, you know, add a guy who's you know, probably The second best player in the floor behind my trial to add him to the roster. I mean, it just It was a really game changer that that's a different issue. I'm joined by senior writer for the athletic Andy McCullough, who's been following the Dodgers for years.

What to Expect From the Dodgers and Rays in World Series

"And the World Series Tonight Clayton Kershaw in game one will tell the rubber for keys dodgers against Tyler glass. Now at the brand new home gonNA turn him in the grass for sure. We'll see if that glass will shatter or maybe the Raizal. Ceiling and win their first world series. It'll be played at the brand new home of the Texas Rangers Globe. Life Field expect about twelve thousand fans or so in attendance, and as you know, it has been a tale of two different halves for Clayton Kershaw, a regular season is dominant. A dominant gets postseason has certainly been that way obviously most of the dodger defenders we'll tell you when you take on somebody in the postseason, the quality competition certainly ratchets up. Game. Tonight pre game coverage ESPN, radio seven, thirty eastern, and every single night that we have the world series every ball every strike pre-game radio seven, thirty, eastern. I just. In the world series is not very good because like five or something five point four, zero in the world series, which is not going to bring it down tonight though we'll see we'll see. The rays have some guys you've never heard of but by this time tomorrow, that's certainly may change including the great rookie randy arose arena. If you see him tonight, he is one of the greatest splashes onto the postseason seen we have seen in many years. All right. So put your dodger cap your cap on literally, and figuratively, what do you think in tonight? One of the biggest moments in the managerial career Dave Roberts who's been feeling the strain I think since day once we first of all, it's going to start with the. Pitching Right Kershaw has to come out and he has to deal and we have to back him up and support him. We're runs the last several outings for him. We really haven't done anything with our bats for whatever reason that's the struggling part of it. If you remember several days ago I had mark to share on our show. Yeah we have more share on our show in in question I asked him about the pressure of a pitcher in those innings you get to the fifth sixth inning and you're still battling in a one. To one situation, we've gotTA give him some room to play with and I think it starts with him on the mound. But also, what are bats the guys like Bellenger even though something maybe a little wrong with his shoulder you gotta hope that a guy like that comes through in J. T. and seger stays hot that way we can get some runs and now kershaw could relax at the mile it pitch like he's capable of pitching can appreciate the fact that even though the dodgers of the second highest payroll and the rays have the twenty eighth highest payroll. At Twenty, eight, million dollars highest she'd player. D. appreciate the fact that they they are. They're frugal when she talked about their payroll all the time. That's the first thing he go to talk about the raise the payroll. We're saving money over here. You can still compass a championship. Would you can. You gotta tip your cap to them as a former pro athlete that's played in a variety of organizations with a variety of different approaches. The fact that they're at this stage for the second time in franchise history utilizing the exact same plan. Let's spend less and win more. Plan works to raise and Andrew Freeman certainly put plan in place for them and they've taken over and they've done well with it. The dodgers aren't doing tell Andrew Friedman is the guy that's leading the dodgers essentially got the job because he put the in such great position in his tenure there from two thousand, six to two, thousand, fourteen, four playoff appearances, two division titles, and now he wants to do as much as he can to make sure he can squash that raised team he built and the culture he formed

You know after he gave up six runs in the seventh inning and I mean I it's it's i. me just personally I mean I'm I'm on sports talk radio all that stuff and I'm a fan before him anything and last night was just heartbreaking. It was heartbreak. Kershaw do well right I want that guy to punch through and get that monkey off his back and solidify his legacy and so I feel. Sorry for him. I feel sorry he's.

"That was the sixth inning southbound. That's the sixth-inning sound. Real growl. Let me give you A. House that that's that's really a one. Road that's. Out Right now fired up so Kill not oh by the way. Last night in the let's. COME ON JAVA Trench off. So. It was a very, very disowning night very disappointing, and let's say first of all. That the dodgers. Made. This rookie kid looked like he was a world stopper. And he was throwing fastballs he was attacking the zone. Dodgers could not catch up to him. No matter what they did. It was an unbelievably slow night for the offense and that is a critical reason why they lost but. Go to the sixth inning. Kirsch third time through the lineup. Come on. Go Go. infield single for a Kunia throwing error puts them at second. All right. So let's walk through this. Okay. Okay. So Clayton Clayton Kershaw goes out to start to six infield single for Kunia throwing error by pushing the singing bunce. That was that was not a hard single Kershaw to like dive for it. I thought it was actually a really good player by Kiki says just couldn't get him. Get Him couldn't get him out a really fast. You're not a runner at second nobody off. On Them I don't either Freddy Freeman's coming up. So Freddie's left. So, Clayton. You could've and some people think as soon as Clayton Kershaw got cooney at second Dave Roberts should have pulled them know. Freddy Freeman comes up lefty lefty lefty. Runaround second and Freeman Doubles Homerun now at that point with a string of right handers coming up law Selah zone and Travis d'arno an Ozzy Albee's right handers in a row. That's where you go to the bullpen. That's where you go for your right handed situational high leverage reliever like brewster grabher all. I would have taken out kershaw one batter sooner than Dave Roberts did in the end. GROHL didn't have it victims, Alison have it out McGee didn't have it. Just came up. Lame. So we can put all this on Kershaw and I think it's I honestly think it's fair at this point. Momo the numbers are the numbers are the numbers of all pitchers who have thrown one hundred posts in postseason innings. Clayton. Kershaw has the highest dra that's just flat out fact. He's not I was GONNA try to defend him I was because I know what it was like when we played in these one one games and I just always felt really bad as a hitter that we couldn't get any runs on the board far pitcher right? Like we were putting her in that position all the time like you have to be perfect because we suck. Okay. So I felt bad and I was like you know what? This isn't all on Kershaw the dodgers had three hits all night. Three hits. Three. Book but. Then you sent me that clip from Alex Rodriguez. You sent me Alex Rodriguez talking about what it's like to face Kershaw what a hitter of his caliber of big PAPI's caliber would be thinking when they get in there to face kershaw. One of the things I'm going to bring you inside the dugout on how poppy and big hurt and I will talk if we're facing a guy like like kershaw number one, I, remember ninety, five, three, two pitch when the Yankees play the mariners one, hundred and fifty bitches for David Cone is split to Doug Strange and walk them. We'll say he'll never given if we're talking poppy you and I was GonNa say Okay Give Me Scott reports on Kershaw and was okay. Make sure nobody's listening. Here's the thing. Back, off the plate is gonNA throw in cheat in every time he'll throw it there and then number two. If you get to a three to count, you can swing never walk you. He does not want to walk you right that's a very comforting just getting swing mode three to pitch is the pitch that hitters chase the most if you have a guy that's not willing to walk you, it's just comfortable. It just start your swing and three to curb Otto sooner it. He bounces it is a strike out because the sooner wants to swing right Right Nineteen strikeouts. One Walk to your point handling your ego stubborn stubborn gotta be able to play poker. Oh. So he eld it delayed in l. that man what you do know where the battered digging in against Kershaw a big game and when he he you know a-rod is nice and he's calling it ego. You can't let your ego getting away right of not wanting to walk somebody you know what I say that's fear. Fear you don't WanNa. Walk them because then you're like Oh put another pattern. Just traffic on. I. Got a kitchen stretch I got to pay it all now they might score four runs now that might hit a three run homer. That's fear. That's not ego. It's fear and. That to me is what the dodgers problem is right now they're playing not to lose their playing not. Their play I mean, there's there's so tight. They're so scared. Weird because. Malloy the gut on that stretch from game to the seventy nine all the way through slowly. Getting. Hardest. Hit when you're up five nothing not that hard. There's no pressure on you and pretty relaxes when they're when they're front running. Up Five nothing. We're GONNA take a lot of calls today because dodger fans I think are going to vent and. I'll just tell you some of the stuff that I'm seeing on. So many dodger fans on my twitter. And a lot of people blaming, Dave Roberts. It's Dave Roberts fault that we're in now spot you know not be more wrong now not be more wrong to blame Dave Roberts as has got ace. If you're in cy young you better cy young right there if you are if you are Clayton Kershaw and you're facing a rookie pitcher. In game four of the. You GotTa outpitched them you can't get. By some kid you want to know the difference between the kid and Kershaw. Kids not sitting out there worrying about ten years of playoff failures leg. About legacy, he's done I heard it on her shoulders. You know what he said it's just baseball just me out there pitching his mind is clear like what's that clear the mechanism? Mind is clear. He's not making the moment you big picture with any fear if that kid blows up like the kid, the night did the night before kyle right. Oh, well, no one was expecting him to have a big day. Sure and. The series only going to be even. Even if they lost the series was only gonNA. Lose team they were the ones that are loose. Yeah they're not expected to win. And they're going to. By the way Momo, i. saw I thought Kershaw was GONNA win there. He did and I. As Morales says, I did I did go with Kershaw Day they will never kershaw day is permanently cancelled. Yeah. There's no such thing as Kershaw Danny more because he's just a guy in the postseason come on grimshaw. He's a guy that can get you..

"In just a few moments so stick stick around for that certainly. Greg. Bergman I would imagine that you were if I had to envision you yesterday it is. You were worried for a little bit. You were then starting to get a little more worried and then mookie betts. Kinda got the rally going and then things exploded, and then you kind of took a Brett if I had to guess your range and spectrum of emotions yesterday. Is that good analysis of it I? Think you think very little of me to think that I would be worried in game one against the giants. Obvious. no I was. I was just enjoying watching baseball again and I. Look this team. The the moment that the giants had bases loaded and nobody out, and only got one run on a sacked fly. I knew there was no chance they had in that game. They were done that, was it? Right, I guess I mean listen I I was a little worried I know. It's only game one but game one. Counts for like three games. It's like it's actually like came seventy five at this point. Seventy five, and then came to is like eighty three one win one loss counts for three games so. You know it's like three and a quarter games. It's not like it's a little thing like losing a game. Like I I actually think this year. It's what I what I'm going to like. The most about baseball this year is that there's actually a sense of urgency for a change. Yeah, so and when it comes to the dodgers team I think we have to get something out there right away. Is that the whole point of the the way that the dodgers played? They're very patient at the plate because they're trying to get the starter out of the game and to get into the bullpen, which they just destroy bullpens especially when they're going left right left right left right in the lineup so in this in these sixty games that we're going to. To Watch you're going to get to the bullpen very fast very often, because stars aren't going to go more than four or five innings and we saw both starters didn't go more than four and third last night. So this goes right into how the dodgers play you get all that like you know, but I'm saying like one loss is going to be a lot different than one loss over one sixty two. That's undeniable well. Yeah, absolutely, but I I mean look what they're dealing with your you got. The giants pot giants do look like there should be like the Benny Hill music playing behind them when they're when they're trying to field. I mean that that I. Think it was like the seventh inning where the they had a shift on and the shortstop. Instead of going to first base, like gave it to the second basement to try to get pollock at second I'm like what are you doing? Teach people in Luli. Right and then they also had the guy on third, who who ran into a basically inning, ending double play running into a pickle because their base running was so terrible. This is we're dealing with in the NFL west. It's just not gonna be that big of a deal, so yes, those losses means something. Out Not when you're going against this terrible in west. Fair enough. Are you worried about Kershaw? Though you should be I mean I'm always a little worried about Kershaw, and the fact that it's a back problem again and he had so many back problems in the past. That's concerning. But did you see Dustin may last night? He didn't even know to the day before that he was gonNA. He's fine. He's fine. He's great kidding. He was throwing gas the whole night. I don't think gases ever been his problem. You know what I'm saying like. I think his problem is control. No, but they were dirty pitches like that he was. He was hitting the coroner's. He was it was he got out of that? That bases loaded jam with nothing more than a sacked fly. Doctor about it I really think he's going to be something special down the line. Yeah, of course he's. It'd be something special down the line, but you. You needed to be something special now. Especially, if Kershaw is going to miss time, and here's the thing I'll open it up right now. Eight seven, seven, seven, SPN, eight, seven, seven, seven, three, seven, seven, six, the reason I'm worried about Kershaw and you know this, I think Clayton Kershaw is one of the greatest pitchers of all time and I think that Clayton. Kershaw has been amazing for the dodgers in his career and I think he takes too much grief for the postseason stuff because I think some of it is not necessarily his fault I think some of it is random, I think some of it is stuffy in the you know. For example relievers can hold. Runners Forum and things of that nature. Historically I also think that the Astros cheated him in that game five in Houston so I think he takes way too much grief, but I wasn't keen on that contract because it gave him an extra two years after having I believe it was four straight seasons of injuries including the back injury. This is the first time we've seen the back injury. You know he's got A. He's GonNa. Have to have a back yard amee. Or something you know what I'm. And and I think that I said at the time Joe. This doesn't smell like Andrew Friedman. You know what I'm saying like paying a guy for past performance. It smells like ownership being like. Hey, we got to pay a guy for past performance. Because this guy is one of the greatest we've ever had, and that's fine and you do. But you find yourself in these situations, because the the biggest predictor Greg of future injury is past injury and with Clayton. Kershaw now. We're dealing with that and I. Don't think it's going to necessarily get much better..

The bears stuffed animals they see and I mean that was so fun for does and I think just like Allan said just the innate like wants and needs to connect me just even walking around here in like waving. I mean just simple gesture to wave. I feel like everybody is waving now. And just like saying hi. It's filing as opposed to. Maybe we're so busy. They just zoomed through in. You don't even stop so people definitely aren't as busy now and it's been it's been. There are some great blessings that have come out of this time for us. So it's always inspirational to see athletes. That are active in their communities L. And can you tell us about Kershaw's challenge in what you guys are doing to support the communities that are dealing with cove in nineteen right now. Absolutely yeah Kershaw's challenges. The name of our charity. That claimed I began ten years ago. We're actually about to celebrate our ten year anniversary in every year. We roll out new beneficiaries and projects. Her shot challenge will get to raise money through our ping pong tournament in la through. Casey live our country music concert in Dallas in this year right as we are rolling out our beneficiaries projects for this year. Obviously we're in the midst of Kovin and there are so many organizations that are providing meals relief for people that are usually in meat and so thankfully to our beneficiaries behind every door here in Dallas and the dream center in La. They are on the front lines trying to provide hot meals in relief to people that are in such desperate need and so we just ran out this Cova campaign for two weeks in. I mean it was amazing. We we raised over eighty five thousand dollars just in two weeks for these organization. So you know talk about ways that we've seen America be great and at its best right now. People are desperate to give and to want to find opportunities outlets to be able to give back and we got to see that firsthand we saw so many of our faithful donors to continue to support us. But something that was really cool was that we saw five ten twenty dollar donations from across the country. Just fine to help with whatever that killed. I think that was special to see. Just people just like onset are willing to help and just giving whatever would however much or little they have trying to support other people so definitely definitely cool thing to see out of this tweet campaign you picked to charities one in Dallas One Los Angeles two homes. How did you pick these two organizations to support like do they have special meaning to you also like instead every year? We picked new beneficiaries for our Kershaw's challenge project as what we do every year have different. Great applications been just fortunate that worked behind every door and the dream center before you're GonNa continue to have them as beneficiaries. We have other projects are in continue to do it but since they already had things setup for Kobe relief and being able to provide meals. We just decided to do a quick to campaign and let people know that if you donated during this time or be going to these two nonprofits and it was. It was awesome work out really well. The Dream Center is serving literally. Thousands of hot meals to families who all of a sudden are without jobs without students have all their kids home and not eating at school and sing with behind every door. They're creating these care packages. They're delivering people's homes with groceries and essentials in hygiene products. So almost like we didn't want to recreate the wheel when we're trying to figure out a way to support people in need during this Kobe time we just wanted to partner with those who are already on the frontlines had relationships felt again. We just love these organizations. We believe in them in. We trust them. We're thankful that our donors trust us and know that we do all the vetting before handed a know where their money can go. That's so great. One of the things that Kershaw's challenge in the Bush Institute have in common is a commitment to Africa. You know president. Bush Started pep far when he was in office in. We continue that work now through. Something called the gopher partnership screen and treat cervical cancer on the continent. I was fortunate enough to be able to go a couple of years ago. Botswana Namibia and see that work on the ground and there is something it changes your heart. I think it changes your perspective on things and I know that that's the case for the two of us. I wondered if you could talk a little bit about that. Well I mean we love with which is doing over in Africa. You even Zambia. Where that's that's where Kershaw challenge all began for us. I started going there. I mean probably fifteen years ago or something like that in left a huge piece of my heart over there told Clayton first time you hug. Zambian child your life is forever changed because it becomes about that one kid and if you could just change the liked that one kid that was worth all the work and all the money and and everything looks good over there and sometimes I think we get really overwhelmed by the massive Lincoln of poverty that is Africa and all the need that is over there and and so. I just think that that's what we try to do with Kershaw's challenges. It's one kid at a time one time than so we've gotten to build a couple orphanages over there just children's home where these kids about thirty Home are able to be raised in a home. Feels like a family brothers sisters house parents and now we're finishing up the school over there so you know that's been always the heartbeat in a cornerstone of Kershaw's challenge in and I'm thankful that the Lord is kind of expanded our vision to Dallas in La in the Dominican Republic. Slow in our beneficiary over there is called arise Africa and so through them is kind of how we've been able to do all this like onset start at one kid and her name was hope. And I remember I mean clears day when Allen got I got a phone call from Africa just saying we need to help this girl. I mean do something more than just. Have you know her basic needs met and now hope is Thriving in one of the home and she's getting ready to finish up school and start thinking about a profession and things like this and Just to see where she was now matter. We think she's probably nine or ten no matter where she is now is just a just to see the other. One kid is is Is Really Special Great. Thank you guys for that incredible work. That was fifteen years ago. So you would have. You'd just kind of starting off in your baseball career. That memory still with you this this many years later. Yeah that was actually our honeymoon. Basically we got married in two thousand ten and then Three weeks later. She had me over to Africa show. That was my first trip over. Ellen had been gone. You know a few times before. That was that was microbes strip. Basically with hers right after we got married. It was just so providential to see you know God gave us baseball in Ellen's passion of Africa and then to use that flat form. I heard shouts challenge. There's a lot of divine intervention there so's it was really cool to see while we're talking about the Bush institute another another aspect that we're really passionate about his leadership in developing leaders and leadership and baseball's a little different that there's no leadership training classes as far as I know of not in the majors. But you're now well into your career Clayton era all your cy young winner your MVP so by default you kind of become a clubhouse leader. Is that something you really relish and enjoy or is it something that that you seek out or does it just happen? Became a veteran fast. You know I looked up and I was surrounded by twenty two and twenty three year old so that happened really fast but you know I think leadership isn't necessarily necessarily driven by success how people are drawn to you. It's how is how you interact with people in the clubhouse it's been it's just been an interesting journey for me to have so many different people ahead of me and kind of realize what I liked. But I didn't like how how I really learned and the way I learned is by example has lots of guys in front of me that they talk to me but didn't really do anything because I went and saw what they did and they weren't doing what they said and so for people just to have that example. I think is so important so. I'm not a huge vocal leader. I wouldn't say definitely try to do everything by example and try to do things the right way. And hopefully people have questions about that and That's Kinda how I try to get through guys just by continuing to do the same things every day and be consistent and people end up respecting you for that. You know we've never had. I don't Think League Baseball player. Any other professional athlete apply to our Presidential Leadership Scholars Program. So you know. I think the schedules overlap right now. But once you retire many years down the road take a look at that. I think you might get something. Let's keep talking about baseball. We've got Clayton Kershaw here. We have to talk a little bit of baseball. You got a few miles on the on the tires now. You're not quite as young as you used to be. So look good but not quite as young. Is this break. Good for you have you. Have you had this chance to rejuvenate a little more or are you worried about breaking out of that routine? Yeah you don't really get to build of rest. You know like no matter how long you rest you still play the season and feel the aches pains of the season. So it you. You definitely need some recovery time. But you don't need the six months that we've had obviously now go of it so I'm excited to baseball back online. Both were excited so if it does happen where I'll be ready is. This is weird for US TO BE IN DALLAS. At this time we're not used to it Everybody says it's hot here. It's beautiful weather. Yeah I don't know everybody's complaining about it the summer it's beautiful so we're.

"You've been at the dodgers training facility. You're watching the news and it's pretty clear at this point you're not going to see Clayton Kershaw workout. We need you guys. Just decide to get out of there. I don't know he just came out. Let's go home. You know like okay. We walked out. We're still fans out. He and I both just couldn't believe that we are like. There's still people out there trying to get autographs craziest thing happened. We're in the car and just riding along talk and his phone rings and I looked down in the name shows up on the caller. Id on the console. I just went home and I was like. Oh I'm so sorry but it was Sandy Colfax. Oh I know exactly. He was like he's like mind. If I answer this I might try not to look so overeager that my head spun off and I'm GonNa go ahead. It's very clear that they like and respect each other. They call each other Clayton Sandy. You know what I mean like. It's clear that it was just interesting to hear them talk. Because the number of people who can understand what Clayton's life like is very small and the number of people who've almost time traveled into the future and no things about his life and what it's going to be like that numbers even smaller so when they talk about. It was two pitchers. Talking wasn't an eighty four year old and a thirty two year old. It was two guys who could have been talking like there's at famous John mcfee story about the guy who makes birchbark canoes. I mean they were talking about making canoes. I mean they were just talking about their life's work so obviously Colfax and Kershaw are part of this sort of elite group of greatest of All Time. Right the difference being and now. I feel like a jerk. I'm bringing it back to this but it's unavoidable the postseason legacies in the postseason. Records is Kershaw. Do you think he's cognizant of that? Do you think it weighs on him. I don't know I think he will be later. In order to even have a chance to be Clayton Kershaw. You have to be able to process success and failure and build a story to tell yourself about yourself in a way that is every bit as rare as having the arm that can make the ball do that in the in the air. It's easy to go back out there if you keep succeeding having those failures and continuing to go out. There and try is deeply impressive. So you're saying we gotta do to be great right as blest petty could be less petty and just not live in a world in which you're defined by other people which unfortunately is the world. So how'd Your Day with Kershaw End? Think both of our minds were elsewhere. Almost the very end. He dropped me off at my hotel. He was GONNA to meet his family. I was going to try to find some hand sanitizer but it was very much you know. Thanks for the day I appreciate it. It was a weird day but lovely. I mean when I'm reporting my phone is off and so I got back to the hotel and turn my phone and call my wife Sonia. She was like you have to go get clocks wipes and hand sanitizer for your flight. All America has been freaking out over corona virus while you were sitting out at the Los Angeles dodgers with your phone off so it was the next time you got in touch with them. It's funny the only other time I've talked to him as he walked on. Zoom call with Ellen his wife and he walked by and waved a couple of days ago. How has he been spending the time? How is his family? Been spending the time how man they've been his son. They love to play baseball with a ball. They'd be doing a lot of that Ellen. Talked about how he's in the backyard growing into a net and sometimes he throws into a tarp. And you know he's trying to sort of stay in this narrow sweet spot where he's not burning up his arm and yet he's GonNa be ready you know. His workouts are done every day by eleven. Thirty cooking breakfast plan. Papa shot out this Jim. One twenty eight but jockey. I was worried about how I was going to report. And then it turns out that Ellen was filming all these videos of them playing at their house and sending them to the dodgers waiting. Everybody Line Buddy we are going to show you a day in the life of the Kershaw is May Day. She talked a lot about how you know. This is a weird window into what retirement is going to be like. He's in there flipping pancakes and being a dad. And they're watching movies and doing cannonballs in the pool. She realized that how nostalgic they're all gonna be for the sound of a baseball whizzing through the air and then whapping against a tarp or net once. All of this weird baseball circus is over. However many years from now that is she's like you don't really understand what a pitcher like Clayton's fastball. Sounds like until you can hear it and it's terrifying. I mean it's you know it's buzzing through the air so she talked about how she's going to be nostalgic for that sound a guys finishing day bring some books some waffles. It's been a good one. Thanks for hanging out with us. You'll stay safe and hopefully Yeltsin right so you. Did you get the sense from his wife's that they're almost enjoying this extra time with him? This sort of limited period or that. They want baseball to begin. Think both like full-throatedly both understand those are contradictory. But I mean that feels very human to me. He wants to go win a world series. He wants to be number. Twenty two for the Los Angeles dodgers the guy that people count on. He's at home in Texas in April which feels weird. His body knows. He's not supposed to be here. Clayton Kershaw body wants to know. Why the Hell it's not in Los Angeles you know I mean I'm sure like on a subliminal physiological level of feels weird right obviously this law season or Bradtha season on hold is affecting all athletes all baseball players but it seems to me that for someone like her Shah who is getting older who has so much to gain at this point in his career on a team that was regarded by many people to be the favourite going into the baseball season. Well he lose more. If this season never happened. I guess I'd like to let Ellen Kershaw into that. I just pull the story up. She said he is healthier than he has ever been. So I think that that has been frustrating because I think he was so ready to go into the season but part of me also wonders if taking these months off his just going to be more time for rest on his shoulder and then she said you know Clayton his pitch so many innings and I really hung mayor in the air. It's a story about one working person with a family dealing with the corona bars. It'll be a long time. And only with the benefit of hindsight will we understand sort of what was lost in what was.

"So Right Clayton. Kershaw is of course one of the best pitchers in the history of baseball surefire hall of Famer. But he's also well known at this point for his postseason struggles. Where were you in? The dodgers lost the nationals. Last fall I was at my in-laws House last year during the playoffs and like everybody watch that game but one hundred six win dodgers getting a second crack to reach their fourth straight in the deciding fifth game. Dodgers NATIONALS. Coming up next on. Espn he got brought in and the seventh inning. They were up three to one over the nationals. And what's amazing is even with his postseason failures in the past. The crowd of dodger stadium was going crazy when twenty two ran out. There comes one of the best pictures of his generation. The left Clayton Kershaw. Everybody believed including Clayton. He got the last out of the seventh inning Kershaw sets fires. Jack swearing did. He go did him out. Kershaw puts out the fire and he comes out in the eighth inning and gives up back to back home runs. Swing and a high fly ball. Well-struck left field near the wall eight. It's gone blast one off Kershaw. Swing High Fly Ball well-struck. Right CENTER FIELD WAY BACK THERE. God and we are back to back homers two consecutive pitches fifty eight seconds in which the nationals hit. Two home runs and he's taken out of the game. Dropped into a squat position. Didn't even look it where the ball went. This place is stunned. The picture of him in the dugout afterwards just looked like a guy who had his heart ripped out kershaw in the dugout. I mean it's that blank stare of just what just happened. Stephanie Abstain from sports illustrated described his eyes as red rimmed and is over the Washington. Nationals beat the dodgers. They're moving on to the NFL CS his quote after the game. Was everything. People say true right now but postseason? I understand that terrible feeling. This is about as low as a human being can feel in their work. Life is a terrible feeling. No excuses just didn't make this guy twice. I was just curious. What do you do after that? You have all this time to do nothing but think about it and then get yourself in a place to start over and try again. That seems way more impressive to me than the ability to throw a baseball like the the ability to do that. So the next day I sent an email to his agent and there were many agents and publicists and different things but it all started then I started to ask so the first day of the offseason. You Email Clayton's agent asking for an interview than hundred fifty or so days later on March Twelfth. You finally get through face to face with him. How did your day start out? Picks me up at six thirty right on Tom. He's never ever late. And so you know man. We're just riding along shooting. I mean you know we were laughing about the you know. He checks into hotels under fake names. He uses television characters He's been Jim Howard. He was Walter White for a couple of seasons. We went to starbucks and he The name was Tony. So if you're a starbucks or an uber driver in Los Angeles and you're picking up a Tony it might be Clayton Kershaw. And he's probably going to change that now. I'm sorry quite. I told him I was at that world series in Houston I timed. It was a thirteen seconds silence but God. It felt like three times. That's sitting in the car. And then he just changed the subject to talk about. The traffic is second to weather in terms of meaningless conversation. That people add. If if you're talking to someone and they're talking about the traffic the weather they do not want to be talking to. Of course the reason he didn't really want to discuss it isn't just because of what happened last season. It's because of what was the latest in May most gut wrenching in a string of disappointments for me right. What was frustrating. About watching this latest occurrence was it just reinforces. All of these bad sports takes stat e chokes. That's his reputation and it feels so unfair for one of the greatest pitchers of all time to be defined by that book. He's had some bad outings. He's also been the victim of just staggeringly bad management. He's had some bad luck. I mean we ain't even talked about the Astros thing yet where they just stole that when the first pitch swing flag. That's a tough shot. Sold the first pitch from Herschel and Houston as scored four runs bidding tits out Clayton Kershaw. Who has one of the greatest curve balls and one of the greatest sliders that have ever been thrown through fifty-one breaking pitches and the Astros Swung and missed at zero of them? Maybe no one was personally damage more by their cheating than Kershaw Houston. Astros have claimed that city's first ever World Series Championship Astros series important to this and it is damning but also right there's the National League division series against the cardinals the championship against the cubs. I mean there's just there's just a lot of examples at this point guys throwing a lot of postseason innings and he is catching the best hitters in the world at their very best and most motivated. There is a case to be made that it's bad luck but you're right. I mean. He has gone out when the team needed him to be. Clayton Kershaw and was a average major league pitcher. And you know you have to deal with that when you're doing the final accounting of him throwing a baseball my God. That's a huge part of it. So you were spending the day with Clayton to learn more about how he's processing all of that but it wasn't a normal day for either of you it was the day after the NBA. Suspended season because of the virus. So right you arrive at the dodgers silly together and then you immediately realize they're serious conversations happening about the fate of the baseball season. What was it like there? What was the scene like? I'm out in the lobby of the dodgers facility. And he's back through these double doors down this hall where the clubhouse in the lunchroom and all that stuff are the dodgers had shut down the clubhouse and everybody was freaking out so he was sitting back there with his teammates watching the news wondering if they were going to have a season wondering if they didn't have a season and there were no fans how they were going to get paid worrying about where they were going to live and what to do with their families worried about their parents. I mean the same thing that everyone was doing. It was crazy. Mean the night before that Wednesday night An editor Rachel had gone to the giants game. It was packed. I mean like we almost couldn't find a place to park. I mean we missed the first inning because there was so much traffic and so many people that we couldn't park. I don't know it sounds crazy naive now but I just sort of thought that I'd be following a ballplayer around pretty normal day. He came out to check on me. I think he felt a little guilty that he'd sort of promises ride along and we're going to go you know he's GonNa Pitch and work out and you're gonna go see the whole thing. It was interesting the degree to which he stopped being an athlete and I stopped being an annoying person. Follow him around right down in a notebook. He's also a pretty unique athlete. I suppose to experience this kind of day. And that sort of level of randomness with because there's absolutely nothing random about him and his approach and that's what's interesting to me. I mean I thought a lot about it because every kershaw profile is like six twenty takes a sip of water six twenty six he runs onto the field and IT 702. They sing the national anthem. And this goes on and on and on. It's sort of hit me. I was like well. What are these things have in common? What what is the through on? And it's not so much these obsessed with controlling everything instead. He sort of obsessed with time and managing it and understanding that it is currency to be spent so to see someone who is so intentional about how to be peak himself. If that's even what phrase on March Twenty six or on opening day to see that sort of start to disintegrate San through the fingers was very interesting. Did you get the sense that day? But any of that had even occurred to him yet. Because of the time we didn't know how long this is going to drag out. What these sort of formless stays would even look like. Did he seem worried about the fact that you know he might not be able to follow through with what should have been a very good season. Oh yes definitely was already like. They need to tell me what day. It's going to start because I can't. I don't know what to do every day if I don't have a day off in the future to back Tom all this stuff I mean. That's the thing he kept saying. I needed date. I need to know.

"kershaw" Discussed on You're Wrong... And Here's Why

"Lose as a guy has a guy who watched the longest World Series game that lasted two and a half days. I personally to cricket. Yeah. Exactly. I personally don't mind the long games. It's just there are certain points. Where game starts at eight thirty or eight forty five and all of a sudden, it's one AM and it's the sixth inning. What's going on? I feel for people with that stuff. I really do. Yeah. These are the times of year where it's like, man. I really wish I still lived out there. And every other part of the year when we're let's look at the free agents for a second and ninety seconds be damned because this was the last segment, and we're out of here after this. So you have you have Harper Machado Kershaw, and then some others where how do you rank those three personal? I think Harper's one. I think if Kershaw does come out he's probably to Machado's three. I think Machado really hurt his value. With some of his postseason antics, at least, that's what I've seen. And that's what I've read. As far as as far as different teams and stuff like that. I also think some of that smokescreen stuff. I think the Yankees are still very interested in Machado bite. The fact that they're, you know, the report came out today that you know. Their interest is low because of it. I don't believe that for a second where do you? And I mean, yes money dollars another big piece to that big big free Asian for that dodgers that team they're going to have if they want to keep this team together. I mean talk about opening up the checkbooks. Oh my goodness. That kind of money. Sure, they do I'm not arguing that. But when you have to give I don't know. Let's let's say people signed for relative bargains compared to what they're talking about. Let's say Machado gets twenty seven and a half million a year, which by the way, he won't he'll get more.

"Laughing and joking. And here's the problem you run into if you're Clayton Kershaw, your earned, run average in the postseason is the reason for your earned ring average, which is zero. Your two runs a game worse in the postseason then you are in the regular season. Here's the static kills you Madison Bumgarner in all the World Series games that he's ever pitched gave up fewer runs than Kershaw in the first inning. Last night, you need your guy. The pitch like Bumgarner the guy got pitching last night pitch, like bum. Due to give the Red Sox. Some credit here where you talk about their lineup, it's not even the big bats that have been leading them through the way in this postseason talking about Nunez yesterday you talk about Brock Holt hitting for the cycle earlier, Jackie Bradley Jr. Ian Kinzler all these guys getting big hits gotta give the Red Sox ton of credit, right? But you're right. We have to write the book or close the book on Clayton Kershaw officially. He is a guy who throughout his career has been almost twice as bad in the postseason and now this isn't prime Clayton Kershaw anymore. He's hitting ninety three miles per hour on the fastball, which is the average major league festival three times this year and not want since July twenty seven. He's not that difficult to hit especially against the lineup, like the Red Sox. So it's pretty much over for Clayton Kershaw. That is who you were in the postseason and you might not ever get that earned ring, but keep in mind what he's saying about the Red Sox is probably also worth some of your merit. If we don't wanna just sit here and blame choking guy that team has done it, severe Lander and everyone else that's the best Red Sox team I've ever seen. And they're played. Discipline is remarkable. Maybe Kershaw would have had a chance at ninety six ninety seven, but not under these circumstances. Hey, glade them. That was back, but at least you're not the biggest sugar in LA man. You know, I can't imagine the printers poppy. Who Would would it it be. be. Got clean shoes in three on three done by that. If the giants are blowing it up, those makes sense to stick with Eli manning, not in any way whatsoever, especially if you think like you can get anything at all from your old friend, Tom Coughlin, who's got a legitimate problem in Jacksonville and for whatever it is that you think of ally manning and how washed he is because he does look what he's better than the quarterback situation that they have in Jacksonville would make a lot of sense if Tom Coughlin went to the giants now that they're getting rid of people and said, hey, I'll take him off your hand. I love how everybody's just throwing him into other teams as Jacksonville saying, okay, I'll take ally manning and win a Super Bowl. I know he's better than Blake Bortles. You'd almost have to better than Blake Bortles, but shipping him off is not the obvious thing to do here because there's also money involved. He also has a no trade clause if he wants to end his career with the giants. I do think that if you are selling off other pieces in creating a sort of stockpile draft picks, I do think it's fine to stick with manning for the rest of this year. It won't blow up your offense. You can still get good. Years out of Odal Beckham and saquon Barkley and still seemed like a reasonable team here. You don't have to give up on him, but you do know that you're moving on from him after this, the no trade clauses, a good point. But I would ask you this if you go to ally manning now and say, hey, this one in six season with Odell Beckham criticizing you. You could leave that for the safety of last half of the season in Jacksonville in the division you can win. When you get there, it'd be enticing to me. You know, the giants. They want to keep the number one pick. They have to you. Gotta keep alignment. Number one pick don't worry about winning careful with Oakland out there, but if you keep you lying there, maybe you can get the first undercover tanking. Arizona might have an angle on, but if you keep out there, you gotta shop. Hutton pressure. We'd be. We'd saying Williams highlights against Virginia union..

"Notable event from last night based on seventy six game Blake's fifty or you all and being under a drum getting into it that way classes where you're interested, right? I don't mean to diminish the impressiveness of scoring fifty in an NBA game, the Detroit Pistons, if they get Blake Griffin, looking like that or going to be a good team in the east. But last night, Joel Embiid and Andre Drummond going at physically and these are two men monsters. That was probably a bit of a flop from the professional irritated. Joel. Says, get him outta here, love seeing these giants clash love seeing Joel Embiid personality, but I wouldn't like it so much if I were Andre Drummond and yeah, that was a total and he got the call that he wanted. And that has to be very frustrating if you're under driving sent away. Absolutely. The story of more substance here when it comes to basketball is Blake, Griffin's fifty. I mean, here's a guy who in the summer with healthy for the first time in a while, got to work on his game, got to work on his body and is in the Eastern Conference and can lead team to the playoffs. He's not terrible. Okay. So this fifty point game for him was kind of something pistons fans obviously wanted to see. But on the other end, Joel Embiid man, he's not just becoming an irritant. He's going to be the villain. He really wants to be opposing teammates are going to opposing teams, rather we're going to hate him. Opposing fans are going to hate him, and I'm starting to wonder if his teammates aren't going to get a little bit tired of this. Eck Blake Griffin, just dropped fifty on your team, and you're talking bragging about your matchup with Andre Drummond, getting him kicked out and you're celebrating. A little bit too much after flopping and getting kicked out that doesn't get the respect of your teammates or your colleagues. So he probably needs to tone it down just a little bit. Who was the hero of the nine who was the hero of John Chapman. He's dot, got being Andre. Drummond was kick out of the game. He really was all over this guy. You'll be like at blanket. You know what I mean? He's the bowl from him, and then he made it difficult for him to take the last show of the. He was at least of the game. Chapa surely are cha-cha watch two point, five thousand. Can they don't spook last night's Los entirely on Clayton Kershaw. That's where everyone's going to put it. My father had the most accurate assessment of anyone in the prediction business yesterday, let's check in with that clip from yesterday before the game, I father told you what was going to happen the you said that we need. They get good stir from Clayton Kershaw. Right..
