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.

"So that is, you know, 30 28 years old. And I have nightmares about. I think I brought up yesterday, a particular half inning in a little league playoff. Because it matters and and of course, it matters to the highest level. So Fair, not fair. Clayton Kershaw was removed himself from the list of those remarkable athletes who haven't gotten it done. Guess what? Mike Trout's on the list. And you can make that the case and it's a good one that Mike Trout hasn't had the opportunities. Clayton Kershaw has has that, Hey, doesn't play for an Angel team of Southern California team like the Daughters that's been in the playoffs. Every single freaking year in the World Series three out of four years. Here's the counter argument. Play every day, bro. And I know clearly in baseball. You can not impact the game the way that unending layer can a quarterback. But he still might shout the greatest baseball player not just of his generation, but there's a case that droughts the greatest baseball player to never win. World Series. He may never get there. Sean Watson's on the list. And the guys. He's that good. He gets paid that kind of money. You. Bill O'Brien. Has been it Turns out, Kevin cashed every moment. Every decision. I just that one. Do it. Doesn't doesn't matter. The MBA has Maura those guys because You impact a game and In the most percentage wise, the highest percentage of the individual can impact. A major American sport is in the MBA and I'm a give you a long list of these guys also because the combination of LeBron James And the Warriors has snuffed out championships for a generation of players almost almost Oh, yeah. Harden Cp three Westbrook. You're talking about guys. Who used to sit on that. On that porch of talented failures with Clayton Kershaw. And Kershaw stood up yesterday and walked away from it forever, and it's awesome. And I love it for What it matters. It changes his legacy in its entirety. And and I'll say it again. He could have pitched. Really poorly in this postseason. He could have pitched poorly. This world Siri's and the Dodgers could have risen above it. It didn't go that way. He was amazing. Kershaw was amazing in the playoffs. It had to go in the office away, and they still want in the long run. That is exactly what would have happened. We would have forgotten. We remember championships, not the failures of him. Guys take Karl Karl Malone's a perfect example. Provolone is even remembered in those conversations. We talk about dunking and we talk about Kobe. We talk about Russell. We talk about Karim. Old timers. Right? Magic bird. Isiah Thomas gets more run sometimes. Come alone. You could make it if you put a ring in Karl Malone's pocket. There's a there's a strong argument. He's a top five player in the history of the game. And why do they not won a championship? You already know that's not new, but he won't because the greatest force in professional sports history in Michael Jordan Guess what. Life ain't fair. And that's what I think makes yesterday's win for the For the Dodgers so special Yeah, Kershaw had more chances than most. It's nice that the sea things work out the way they're supposed to. Clayton Girls should have a ring. You should pitch well in the World Series in the postseason. He should acquit himself. As he's supposed to in the moment, and by the way, it's not like he's a 26 year old failure who figured out he's nearing the end. The Dodgers future's so bright. It's so scary how good Walker Buehler and Julio Urias they're going to be and I know we saw Aria's yesterday. Close it out, Couple innings. He's a starting pitcher. That's what he is. And they've been really careful with him because of his injury. He's come back from. He's a young guy Bures or a young guy, Bule bule areas. Can be Cy Young level candidates, Cy Young. Were the pictures as starting pitchers in that dodgersrotation for many years to come. All you have is a healthy Of course, in always. Corey Seager is not an old guy. Mookie Betts is going to be there for the rest of his career. Cody Bellenger is a young dude. I'm gonna give you a name. That's not a real sexy one. But still will Smith. A big double yesterday. A bunch of young guys on that team. The Dodge would be good for a long time. First I was not going to be Near the end of the road. You have three years after one year of of accident. I don't know. What I know is that you saw one of the last great chances for him to be great in World Series and he got there and he deserve that ring. And it's one of the good, great, beautiful happy stories of a 2020. That has been largely anything but that good for Kershaw good for the Dodgers. It is nice to see things go the way they should anytime, especially in 2028 55 to 1 to four. CBS will take some phone calls. I'm gonna brag about Ella. I'm probably going to point out why Ella should be getting more love, and it already is. As the capital of sports world. All.
Los Angeles Dodgers win World Series for first title since 1988
"Is a winning their first World Series title since 1988 After coming up short twice the previous three years, the Dodgers closing out their seventh championship by rallying for a 31 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in Game six of the fall Classic. Course, it erases the pain felt by the Dodgers and fans following the world Siri's losses in 2017 and 2018. Clayton Kershaw knows that that pain all too well,
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.

There are different opinions amongst the crew here on whether or not okay then let me ask you this when we put in the hot seat before we do. What's that noise about? 30 seconds? Do you get mad when the announcer on TV does this? All right. Kershaw's on the mound, Kershaw's and I hate to say that he's thrown a perfect game right now. And why? I know I'm not supposed to mention that right. Here comes the pitch. I'll ground ball through the middle up into center field. I really don't And I know you don't from Chicago with the goat. Everything I should believe in curses and jinx it, But I just don't. I think every baseball fan even if you don't believe in Jorge socks, you know there was a bloody sock for the Red Sox knows Jorge sake, if you don't believe that when they start doing that perfect game stuff. Or a no hitter, and they mention it. Every fan gets so mad because they know the next pitch is going to be a hit. Yeah, I believe in that jinx, Jorge. Stinky socks. I don't know he's doing aspired..

"Thing. Corey Seager's hitting. Over 500. I think it isn't in the postseason. 3 80 or something along that range in this Siri's Had a big hit. I mean this This Dodgers team is clicking on all cylinders and hears things. It's not over yet. There's going to be a bullpen game with Johnson starting tomorrow in Game six. And if you win a game, anything could happen in the game seven. But this Dodgers team all the money all the brainpower. All the chances are on the cost of doing two things that seemed impossible over the last few years. One. They're actually going to win a World Series for the first time since Kirk Gibson limped up to the plate and deliver those heroics into Latent. Kershaw is going to go from a guy that couldn't get it done. The post season one of the greatest Pitchers in the history of the game. That's all wondering, takes and What? I love other stories that he could have won. He gotta pitch badly. It have lost two outings. The other guys could have done well. And we us you me. America sports fans would have wrongly said he is one of the greats of all time. Because we don't remember the details. They blur over time. That's not the way it went. If the Dodgers can win one of the next two games and is it if It's stiff. It'll be because Clayton Kershaw Was Clayton Kershaw in the first game of the Siri's, and when the series was tied to two and let me go even further and aces job, let alone in all time is the job is to stop the bleeding. Your roll your responsibility. What must happen from youth care? Clayton Kershaw is when you're on a losing streak when the tide turns. When the baseball goes against you, you have to plug that hole. You have to be the guy that puts team on your shoulders. And what Kurt Last night was, was that all of those things, but more importantly, for a guy that's been emotionally broken in the play offs before. This was a Dodgers team that that was borderline emotionally broken. The way they lost that game. That game for you. If you missed it, it reminded me of my worst nightmares. When I was playing Little League baseball, you know, whatever. Like those of us who played Little League baseball, a high level right advanced playoffs in the Chicago area, the bunch of kids who can play and we blew a six run lead in the last inning. Just I think every kid on the team mate in there myself included. With one or two outs. It haunts me. It haunts me, I said in that dugout. And I cried for two hours in that game was over. And we were a good baseball tee. A really good book. Whatever. I was 13 years old, but still Brutal, many fortune brutal That occasionally that sense of dread right that that anything can happen that inability for the the basic baseball play to to feel basic. It happens in the playoff sometimes. It happened in that game four where the Rays of this remarkable walk off moment. Where rounding third what would be ended being the winner and runner fell down? But you had an heir in center field from Bellenger. He misplayed a ball and then you had the Dodgers catcher unable to bring the relay. And it was his heartbreaking, brutal for me. PTSD baseball flashback. And it could have broken the Dodgers. Could that play could break any team seriously have been 31 was too too you saw Dave Roberts sold break into pieces on television. And into that void that angst in that struggle. Clayton Kershaw stepped and pitched a hell of a game five and two thirds and the bullpen got it done. The offense was great. Good for Clayton Kershaw. I want him to be the best version of himself. I'm rooting for greatness, and that's what we got. The Dodgers are a win away from a racing all of the very real struggles of Clayton Kershaw because he's a raise from this post. Fun to watch Art 855 to 1 to four CBS phone.

"Bara at 100 for injury now for Premier Legal Services. Ah World Series Game one happening right now. And I just just graphic just popped up on the screen. So I want to throw this question out to you guys. We talked earlier that Clayton Kershaw has the fifth highest world. Siri's E R A since they've been keeping track of that statistic. All the way back in 1913. Do you guys know? The other. Four men on that list. Who are above Clayton Kershaw in terms of highest World Series E. R, with a minimum of 25 innings, pitched Bob Gibson. Denny McLain. I'd say Bob Gibson was findings pitched. You could have been a good team. If you had gotten there He actually had a pretty good pitcher. Have Perseid survive. 25 innings, the pious, not lowest. Over time, but the the highest Well, What about what about Come, Glavin. No. Idea. I don't know if you guys get these names. Are they really obscure? Um, 12. What decade are we looking at? Yeah. Um, I'm not sure One name is familiar. I don't but I don't think any of us saw him pitch. Thea the one. I think this guy's from back in the twenties or something that there's two names one of recent Intel one of recent vintage reason vintage lit up in the world. Siri's think giants didn't pitch wise. Think Giants O for the Range Land Verlander there yet go for above. Clayton Kershaw, Kershaw..

"With a plus. 1 36 run different 43 17. It's so weird to read a baseball record and it be like fewer games than an MBA regular season. Plus 1 36. The run differential. Next up was plus 80 for the Padres were 2nd 3rd was the raise and a couple of teams that plus 60 So Just go show you. The Dodgers were far and away. By any measure, the best team in the regular season. On because they've had those championship expectations. Year after year after year. People. Our have placed a championship or bust. Label on them. And and I get it. I get it. You know, Eventually they have to get over the hump, right? But Again. There's the zero sum game fallacy where If you're working backwards from the result. Everything is a failure, but said result right You know, and I I have a problem with that. I have a problem with that. Because It's just too simplistic. No. If the Dodgers get eliminated. Does that mean scrap it and throw it away? Really, I mean, they were one of the last four teams left. Two wins away from the world. Siri's Right now. You know? Ah, breaker. To go one way versus the other way and things were different. You know, my status quo response would be running back. Do it again. Yeah, it hurts. It sucks. But that doesn't mean You're actually wrong or off. And you can never guarantee a championship, right? That's not the way it works. You could put yourself in contention. On an annual basis. But you know if if they do wind up getting eliminated, there will be people saying something needs to change and and generally, that will be the manager or the coach, because it's harder to change other things. And you don't actually like it would be stupid. To throw What the Dodgers have in the garbage. Good. I do want to talk about Clayton Kershaw for a second. And going back to Game five. I've seen a lot of people. Say, you know, or refer to Clayton Kershaw's playoff Failures as a narrative. You know this narrative around Clayton Kershaw in the playoffs, It ain't a narrative. A narrative is a A story that is created a narrative you know, isn't necessarily true. I mean, it can be true, but it isn't necessarily true. It's a It's a narrative it is that the tail that is spun or woven around a subject matter. Klinker shells not as good in the play offs as he is in the regular season. That's a fact. That ain't a narrative. It's a fact It is a matter of record. It is a fact. So I don't get what people like. I've never seen. I don't think with a sports figure people go bend over backwards or do backflips to, like protected or explain things away. I mean, clean Kershaw seems like a really good dude. I feel bad for him, too. I feel bad for him. But I'm not gonna lie to you because of it. Not going to not tell the truth because of it. And is it all clean Kershaw's fault? Of course not. Of course, that Not his fault, All of it. You got no run support the other night that that's also drew no run support. You know, there's been situations he's had bad breaks. I guess you could argue Dave Roberts left him in the game too long could have taken him out all these things. He's coming in relief right, which is not his normal thing. There are other factors to it. But There's now enough of a sample size where you could say playoff. Kershaw is real, and it's not spectacular. You know this guy? Has pitched How many innings now? In the postseason. 200 darn close to it. And his e R A is essentially doubled. I mean, Do with that information. What you will With that information what you will But that's you know, it's not a narrative. The problem for Kershaw is the numbers tell the story. And you've all seen it with your own eyes. You've all seen it with your own eyes. His lifetime. Regular season record is 1, 75 and 76. With an earned run average of 2.43. His lifetime postseason record in 28 starts is 11 and 12 with an earned run average of 4.31. For A pitcher among MLB pitchers in history. Who have over 100 playoff innings. His 4.31 IRA is the worst. Now you don't get over 100. Playoff innings if you're not damn good. You know, like that's part of that. In order to get 100 playoff innings. You You're pretty damn good, but amongst the good pictures, he's the worst. He's the worst of the best, and also one more staff. You're Robin his postseason. The Array fromthe sixth inning on is 7.31. That's the worst of any starter with the minimum of 20 innings in that scenario. There you go. Thank you, Anthony. So I mean, you talk about You know, I'm just tired of people saying there is not a narrative. It's the truth. The guy's not is good in the play offs what you want. I mean, like, and people just want to protect it. It's weird. Again. It seems like a nice guy Does. I feel bad for him too? I do. I feel bad for him. I don't take no pleasure. It's not like I would have rather him had a signature start the other night. Does you kind of root for him? But I'm not gonna lie. Or or explain it all away. I mean, it has that ever happened in the history of sports, where a player of his stature because you're talking about like somebody's supposed to be an all time great..

"Right. And then this dude was still pounding in the eighth. Zuna has already had a big night. He's going to send another run is on the board. It's 10 to 2. That made attended to and capped off the complete and total humiliation of the Dodgers. Winning a playoff game. 15 to 3 is impressive, but losing 1 10 to 2. 24 hours later in a must win game with your race is pretty much amazing. And now there are 31 whole staring at the end of the season and a hell of a lot of criticism. They've gone into the tank before, but never like this, because it was only like five minutes ago that we weren't asking. Will they win at all? But rather will they go down as the best Dodgers team ever when they win it all? Another one loss away from this question. Is this the biggest implosion and the biggest disappointment ever for this franchise? And if they show up anything like they did last night? In Game five tonight. Then it is a resounding yes, because right now, this is an absolute on mitigated catastrophe. The rod in the 9 to 5 starts off a reaction by tweet. Kershaw gonna Kershaw. Hey, look, I made this point. They needed more from him. He needed to do even better than he did. But this one is not all on him. Where were their bats? They got nothing going offensively. And then if your argument again is what's Dave Roberts doing? What's he thinking? How does he not get this guy out of there? What? You saw what happened when he did get him out of there.

Not Kershaw, not Colfax. Not Cy Young. Nobody. Where were the backs? And how about that bullpen when they needed the bullpen to keep it close? Those arsonists came out with their gas cans, and they're blue tips, and they did what they've done of late. Burn that stadium to the ground, and the Braves are just better. Just better. Alright.

"This is an organization that didn't face any penalty. None whatsoever. None. They fired the manager, A. J. Hinch. They fired the GM. But the owner, I mean early in the season, saying that, you know, I don't know how much of an advantage it really was, and I didn't have anything to do with it. And there's no culpability here. How was I supposed to know? Even the owner was shifting blame so the team could win the World Series? Have no player suspended. Have no penalty from their world. Siri's not have their rings taken back, not have to death take down the banner not be suspended for the postseason and the entire year false completely to their lap that it happens to be the year that there's no fans in attendance. And then they come back from down 30 to make the world Siri's Believe me. We don't want this. I agree with you, no doubt about it, Except you're I think not understanding the baseball fan and part of this. The Astros are the one team because of this season with no fans that if they got two in one, a World Series, they are the only team that again gets an asterisk for this being a screwup wacky season because Anybody who sees the Astros won a World Series. The comet is going to be well, you don't have to deal with heckling fans all season long or all playoffs long to get to and win this world. Siri's You guys were already scared about it. So much so that the league was pointing out that you couldn't even retaliate against them. Spring training member There were so many players complaining. They know that we get through when fans were heckling on then. Of the Astros. Specifically when the World Series no fans threw 60 games only see a smattering of fans in the World Series. That is the one organization one fan base. You will laugh at that wedding this world Series and go. We don't care that you want because this one doesn't count. It would count for any other team. That's flimsy. That's grasping at straws that is grasping that's going to be the take. It's going to be to take the A and will be to take for me and would be to take for America. All right, but the Astros dancing around Home plate or dancing around the pitcher's mound, winning a world Siri's Still, it's still going to be that you know, you could say asterisk. Haha asterisk! Ah ha! But they're still going to be the ones celebrating and get another championship. Get another set of rings and another batter to hang Long way to go they got they got six more wins to get. That's a lot of wins a lot of baseball, F T a lot of baseball we need to raise tonight and by the way, the Dodgers are toast last night, they they had to win that base, but they had to in the Facebook if they actually got five good innings at a Kershaw really good innings at a Kershaw. Now, OK in the sixth, he kind of implode and you know it's 31 by the time that he leaves, and the game had flipped. But I mean the Dodgers offense, having scored 11 runs the first inning yesterday needs to give Kershaw more than just one run yesterday. See that? How low is the bar for Clayton Kershaw, though we got the right to run a support. I mean, Katie, can you get three? I agree. I mean, it's the same with the Yankees with Gary Cole. You want to score more runs, but you're still Clayton Kershaw. You still knew the stakes last night. And although that offense didn't score, you give up the one run, and then things get away from me in the six. You still gotta finish the deal there and not put your team in a position where the bullpen is going completely implode on you, the dodgersbullpen very flimsy. That's another spotless Clayton Kershaw knew the stakes and the Dodgers offense should have no time for him to because they're facing a team. Frankly, that thought they were going to go opener into a bullpen game and then the guy who starts for Atlanta ends up pitching great through six innings. That is a game when Clayton Kershaw starting versus that with Atlanta that the Dodgers coming off what they came on from the night before, there should be no lowering the bar. No excuse. That's on Clayton Kershaw. That's on the offense. That's a freaking disgrace with the Dodgers did last night. It's on everybody. No doubt. I mean, Khun Kershaw pitch better Could he get through six and two thirds of shut out baseball or wonder on baseball? Of course you can. Ask a hall of fame or to do something like that, and that's where the greats do come through. That's where Madison Bumgarner does dominate. That's where Bob Gibson does make his his bones. Jack Morris. In other October stars, we've seen it. The Dodgers lineup is so good and the day before they had exploded, and in Game two we saw by the end of it, they had finally come around. So It also would have relieve some of the pressure on Kershaw did not have to be perfect. If you could just put up two or three runs there that that's all you need to or three runs, but they couldn't do it and the Dodgers are the Buffalo Bills. I mean, they're going to lose this. Siri's and Yes, they lost the World Series to a cheating bunch of ragtag gases in the Astros. No doubt about it, but You win the division eight straight years. And that would've been the only world serious appearance, right? They only went toe one world. I'm not mistaken, or did they lose two in a row? Gosh, mixing this up. I'm mixing that up, too. But the Red Sox beat So they beat me. They beat the Dodgers. They lost two World series in a row. You know? Eight straight years. Winning the division. You go to two World Series in you're Oh, for two. You know? At least the Braves won one world Siri's. This is becoming really problematic because it doesn't matter what the Dodgers do doesn't matter who's on their rosters, no matter how much they build up, whether it's their starting pitching or their bullpen or their lineup. Now they have bookie bets and they're going to lose to the Braves and the Braves are a good team, but The Dodgers have been the machine for at least five years. They've been the machine and baseball. And they're gonna They're gonna flame out again and it's going to be 30. Two years since that 88 world Siri's 32 years since they want a title because they're not coming back from down 31 this this series is over. And how about Fox, Thinking to get Yankees dodged the beginning of the year could be getting Braves rays in the World Series. I mean, right now, let's face it. Fox is hoping for the Astros. Yeah, you're right, because at least they get that story line reinvest in a big book next Suddenly, those Jaguar dolphin games don't seem so bad. What would you prefer to watch? Ray's Braves or Falcons bucks with Joe Buck on the call. I mean, it's still a world serious, like, yes, the world is, but you're asking..

And now they say, Inkling Kershaw at long last Onto the mountain. I'm not going to say that this start for Clayton Kershaw tonight. Is the biggest of his career. Because the guy is pitched in a lot of big games, and this is not the world. Siri's But this is this is on the list. This is high on the list. Certainly other than a World Series game. The most important start, and it seems like no duh, but we've been to this point in the season for the Dodgers before. Right, but this is a massive start for him. And he also got the Built in talking points, right the back spasms. You know? Or how are they going to affect him? If he doesn't pitch? Well, then I'm sure that back spasms will be discussed. But this is where you and I know what Clayton Kershaw eyes in the postseason is E R. Is about two runs higher. I get it. But the Dodgers need him tonight. The Dodgers need him tonight. Even up this Siri's, because if they don't They're not coming back from 31 down. You got Max freed coming back around. For the Atlanta Braves. This will not end well for the Dodgers if they can't win. Tonight. And so I think this game As we talk about legacy and with a guy like claim, Kershaw, the discussion is all about legacy. This is a legacy. Building. Start. Because if the Dodgers win tonight End up winning this Siri's and going to another World Series and maybe even winning that. We will talk about this start to night. And conversely, if clinker shop bombs tonight And the Braves end up winning this thing in five It is, I think. Cemented, Cling Kershaw All world. One of the best we've ever seen in the regular season. Postseason just couldn't translate. Massive start tonight for Klink Kershaw. Massive game for the Braves. Dodgers minus 2 23 favorites They're giving 2.5 to the Braves, who are plus 1 95. Over under is nine runs. I generally loathe the team that Clayton Kershaw pitches for. I do not wish that franchise a lot of success. But tonight I am backing Clayton Kershaw. I think the Dodgers I'm backing the Dodgers in the first five innings. I'm going to take Klink Kershaw to strike out at least seven hitters. And I'm also going to take the bridge to score at least four runs now. I'll put the caveat on it. I don't know that they'll get Close to the four with Kirsch on the mountain. But Clayton Kershaw The guy that's going to attack the zone. I got attacked the zone this time of year and I know Dodger fans. They're listening like, Yeah, that's kind of been the problem. You got to do it. I got to go after these guys, and I think it's going to lead To a fair amount of strikeouts tonight. Look that Tony Gonsouland kid a couple of nights ago struck out like 11 guys. Clayton Kershaw, Khun Strike Out seven. He's going to attack the zone. He's going To go after these Braves hitters. I think he's going to rack up the strikeouts, but I think he might get touched up once or twice. I could see in ICU Nya or for even a Freddie Freeman. I know left on left. But still Freddie Freeman. With the way he's hitting. I could see him giving up a bomb. I could, but I think Kershaw has far more success tonight. Then he gets steamed up. I think that the Dodgers even up to Siri's, so I bet a minus 2 23. But what's the point? Right? Not getting any value. Their line is 2 23, So I'll take the first five. Strike Kershaw to get least seven K's I do think that the Braves with a combination of maybe hitting a home run off a clinker shop, but also maybe getting after that dodgersbullpen a little bit. I think the Braves score at least four runs. You get, plus odds on that, By the way that and the Kershaw plus 1 10 on Kershaw strikeouts on the over and then +105 on the Braves. Scoring over 3.5 runs. I think we reconvene tomorrow and I think we have a tie. Siri's If it doesn't happen. Plain. Kershaw may be permanently branded as a guy who can't get done the postseason and maybe we're watching the last few days.

Hey, that was going on. What? Sounds chat, Roe. Listen, man, I wanted to tell you Thank you very much for having a discussion yesterday. You know that some might not know. I used to be a police officer. I've been in that situation before. I love the NBA for doing what they did. They took us man, and they brought attention to it. They have people talking about it. And see what happens is if you're not black, if you have had this happen to you before, if you haven't been in a situation where you have been marginalized because you're scared or you're color or your race. Then you really can't say no. You know what I'm saying? There's nothing that you could say. And I was a police officer. Would you have explained that to me, though, And I know this is just one incident. But when? What are you talking? I gotta incident for you, Dan. Okay. Exact same thing happened to me. Me and my partner rolled up on the same MSP. Michigan State Police will handle it. It was a crazy guy, and he had the knife actually in his hand, and they were getting ready to shoot him the only reason why they didn't shoot because they were scared of crossfire. So they were getting in a position where they could take proper aim at him. I told my partner said We've got to get out here before they killed this guy. My partner distracted the crazy guy. I ran full speed tackled him. You should fight before you do anything. You be escalate the situation. You try to figure out what's going on. And at the last resort Ah, deadly force to be used. That's and that's the last resort. You grabbing a guy by his shirt till going in his car. Shoot them in the back. 7000 is ridiculous, and you're going to tell me he had a knife in the car. So wait a minute. He has three kids in the car. He's got to go around the car. Go in the car. Who have Ah, this two officers that have weapons trying on him.

And it was just a gentleman he was, but he was known as midnight loot, because if you thought you had a player Luke. Still thought he had a chance to recruit him. Damon Stoudamire, I think was going to go to Louisville. And Lou Delson got ahold of him and spent three hours on the phone and Damon Stoudamire went to the University of Arizona. Got a national title. Dead baby. Miles, Simon. But he started it, Iowa. And he always would have those teams that you'd go Boy. They're well coached. I would always pull off a couple of surprises each season. Then he went to Arizona but passing away at the age of 85.

Here's the one known it is low with a fastball to atone way, Maybe getting our answer Those pitches. Neither was close to being a strike will know here to know Posey. These are the kinds of spots where Posey I mean, he'll take a walk if you're just out now gonna pitch around it, but he wants to be the guy. Well, see, it's too Kershaw holding. Here's the pitch and it's very high and it gets away from a J. Ellis, the catcher sports past his love on to the backstop you got on. Valen advances to third easily with no play. We'll see how they rule that that could be a passed ball thing. It has to be a passport. It is now they're gonna walk of intention. After seeing that they will issue intentional ball four. Posey Kershaw don't do that real well, either lobbed that one in there. Dance fans unhappy about it. Intentions were clear right from the start. Well, this is interesting. You mean you look at what happened what is happening in this game? The Dodgers of base runners all over the place Giants have not had a hit in the head here would give them the lead. Dodgers have drawn three walks and they've had four hits against Zito in each of the four innings the leadoff man has reached against the Dodgers have not scored. This is the first real chance for the Giants will see Hence at the plate. Kershaw holding pitches and a fast ball is hit foul off to the right out of plan. I think Pence. We're talking very, very small victories down, but I think he had a pretty good look at that pitch since we had both feet underneath them, and Meanies. He's taking the ball to right field. Whether it's awful left. You're right. He is when he's got a good swing going and he's got a good swing going. Five home runs, 15 batted in from Pence a big spot here, No score in the 4th 2 on two out, he swings and it's this one Fallon while he was late on that swing, and that hurt his hand. Trying to shake out is right in that one straight back with almost a emergency to strike kind of swing. Now it's two strikes. He could drive a semi between Hairston Quinto. Anto is not only playing deep, but he's playing them toe pull Bhutto had account of 02 with that kind of hole on the right side, just softly rolled one through. We'll see. Here's Kershaw's to strike pitch, and it's a high fastball swung on and missed it. He chased run up around his shoulders, So Kershaw just owns 100 pence. Pitches around posie and strikes out. I think hunter the whole of that was looking for the breaking ball. He was late on those fastballs. Kershaw stuck with the fastball and struck him out onto the fifth Giants and Dodgers. Nothing. Nothing homerun with Geico in just 15 minutes. You could save 15% or more on car insurance. Visit Geico dot com or call 1 809 47 Auto for your free rate quote.

Fastball in on the hands of Clayton Kershaw. Zito. Three walks in a strike out in the pitch to Kershaw is outside for a ball, one ball and one strike. Zito is thrown 67 pitches. And he has been in and out of trouble in every inning. Here's the pitch. Her shot takes outside two.

"And I think everybody was a little uneasy about what we might see. But he's been really good since he came. He has been good Clayton Kershaw one and all on the season as a starting pitcher with a two five era in twenty one ks Kershaw. Fastball velocity isn't what it used to be. It's obviously, but the lefty has made a great strides and accepting what he can. And can't do his sliders sharper various speeds, and he's getting more comfortable with the changeup, which always has been leased which one. Black. When it goes key. These consisted offering. Yes, she Kershaw is pitching differently than he's pitched because he has to before he used to be able to. It's like, I would imagine there's something similar in football. Where once you start to lose a little bit of a step, not while you're slow, but you're not as fast as you with Carolina. Carolina little bit less pitchers. The same way I'm not throwing ninety five hundred ninety one. So I have to pitch a little bit differently. No, you do you have to you have to figure out. How what you get out of that two case that you have because you got a lot of the case, which when you go to at the end of the day, that's not working for you. Let's change something. Let's get better at this guys. Do they they tend to go to I don't know more junk in baseball because they probably on a lot of heat and a lot of cutters, sliders and sinkers. And then all of a sudden they got a now star going with more curveball because change us because that gives them what it was that they had in the past. But just not what the velocity he's organ this hour made possible by. Hey steel. Yeah. That's right. I'll go hector's orange produce in two injuries right down the street. That's over there. True story. He's got those big full ones you're gonna like bag for ten bucks Okla hector's, orange approach. They sit down the street and south Orange County. You're not going to do sell an orange. It's not gonna happen. You need a permit. You gotta have. Shot. No, I understand that. But his down the street if we were in south Orange County, which I think will be later on this year. Now still going to be north still will be. Oh, so you lie to me. We might stay south. But we're going to be doing stuff north. That's not what you said. But you know, it's just he goes he's ready to go. He lied to. I didn't Heidi you, maybe change my vacation. I did make you know, you took your vacation we plan the holding around you because you're the star not like, but you don't plan stuff. You don't plan stuff without talking to me. I did talk to you for you have -solutely you, and Dan and the man that never do. They just plan we all like to play once in a while. So. Nobody right. All of a sudden, the good ones because you're talking about you know, you make that adjustment out. Imagine we've talked about this with certain wide receivers that once they lose that pop. Certain y receivers that is the case when guys like myself like Rosh was trying to make a joke. I I wasn't. I wasn't a four three guy. So I didn't need to worry about anything. It was just like as long as he wants to play football be fine, right guys that can burn the track at some point time. They don't burn up. The tracking him don't burn the track anymore. It's like he's not that good because he can't catch cold in Alaska and rainy day. What does it again? I'm this old in Alaska on a rainy day. You never heard that non never heard good as dead in a cowboy movie cold in the last rainy day cold Alaska is in his reign. You can't get sick sums wrong with you imagine keys Doppler in his last frozen stuff. The Padres figure. Your sixty mostly cloudy dodgers are twenty thirteen. They're on top of that division.

"You couldn't really have asked too much more from Clayton Kershaw. He threw fat pitch to peek in panted over the fence home center on any what she's pretty piggy. Plea has a knack for the moment for thing. You called it yesterday L z, but the the bigger takeaway Clayton Kershaw pitched seven innings only three eighty four pitches and looked really really good in the process. Well, it's it's it's a nice reminder. If you will that the king is still on the throne in a we're we're quick to push him out the way because we see a shift in the power. We see it coming. But it's not quite here yet and the first month of the season. I think highlights that when you have Walker builder who still trying to find his form ears who was supposedly walkability for that not looking the best and then Clayton Kershaw even though he's coming off injury coming in. And just kind of reminding the faithful, hey, I may not be the greatest, but I'm still pretty damn great. And then he show you. It was nice to see I it was in your name lose role will last night though, nothing. So why couldn't he pitch that way entire season? Because there's a high work. Why doesn't work that way deci and all the other stuff that you win the league anymore. More. Well, because I decided I didn't wanna play at the time that I retired. Now. I'm too old. Right. But that's what I'm saying. Eventually, it's not your was your decision. But eventually father time says no, but he's not on the father time Cy. It happens all the time an older player of especially a guy that's got the resume of a player like Clayton Kershaw there. Even even as Clinton Kershaw starts to decline. He's still going to be pretty good. But the ability to deliver performance after performance after performance that's an a plus that starts to go. And then all of a sudden eight-plus does they're not just not frequent they're gone. And now is the time. It's it's sports put it this way. He and the Bronner essentially, the same age Clayton Kershaw is aging superstar LeBron James is not no, but his Clayton Kershaw really in aging. Yes. Yes. Yes. Now, it doesn't mean. He's not good. Right. That doesn't mean that. He can't get guys out that doesn't mean that he can't win a big game for you. But the days of that dude going out there and say and not just can't he do it here or there. But for what seven eight years when that dude walked out there used the game was over right? The game was over. He was gonna pitch eight innings. He's going to strike out ten guys he might give up a run or two. Maybe maybe maybe not. But he was going to give you that performance in just about thirty five times a year. And now you're gonna get that performance ten times a year. It was like it was like sex fourth ring still really good player. But clearly he needed to Wayne. Wait, you know? So it's like that Kurt credit Kershaw is clearly still a really really good pitcher. But he he didn't pitch 163 put it that way. No. And look Kershaw looked good. And that made me feel good about the dodgers kenley Jansen on the other. Hand. And look I like he's been a great dodger. He was the best closer baseball for a good long stretch. He he's the reason the dodgers were in the World Series. The last couple of years in part. He's been really really good. I'm worried about that guy and not just because he gave up a run in the ninth inning. And they fell behind. It was the his his velocities like ninety ninety one. He's missing spots that I I don't know seven or eight years kenley Jansen come in he cut her cut her cutter cutter. He just throw it. Oh, it's just like Rivera just pounding that cutter. No one could touch him. Now, he's got to move it in and out. He's got a mix up his pitches. If he misses his spot he's given up big hits. He got tattooed with that. Double it just that that guy's margin of error has gone from pretty huge to non existent and he can't hit his spots right now..

"But anyway, just my narrative perspective I just wanted to see him start to season. And I mean, it's not like he's not a be still. It's not like he's not listed as one of our starting pitchers. But you know, what it is? I haven't given. I haven't gone through all thirty major league baseball teams. But off the top of my head. I that you if you are on any of the thirty teams in major league baseball. He's the opening day starter for at least eighteen or Twenty-one. He's that good. Of course. Of course, he is. And as I said, I have no problem from baseball perspective with him being opening day pitcher at all I just wanted to be able to congratulate the young man from coming back from injury. Because last season we kinda snuck him in the playoffs and because well he pitched well, but because we were in the play trying to get a World Series. That was the story all the time as opposed to. Oh my God. He's back, and he's still got really good stuff. We'll remember when they brought him up the first time two years ago, and he was nineteen and he was eating. He was. The next big thing. Like, okay. This is the guys left handed. He throws one hundred miles an hour filthy. He's got great makeup for a kid this, and he came in with massive expectations huge expectations. And he was good. Not great. And it was kinda one of those. Okay. Needs a little more season. They sent him back down. And then he got that. He was able to come back last year in the environment that you just described with more less no expectations. Just the only thing is hoping for him at that point was let's just hope he's healthy. Right. Any was. And then he's really good. I and I wonder if this doesn't fall into the same category of, you know, we're not putting the expectation of your the opening day guy. He's still a young kid. It's just you're gonna pitch you're gonna pitch a lot for us. But we'll get you games. Two through whatever we're going to give this reuse been around the block a bunch of times he's been in moments like this. I don't know if this isn't the best of both worlds that you still get a frontline guy, which were you is depict that first game and aureus doesn't have to carry the water of being. Oh, you're the first guy that starting an opener since Kershaw a million years. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, you're you're absolutely. About that is just you know, just a storyteller. I mean, that's all and the speaking of storytelling, one of the reasons why were you is pitching is. Because the other guys hurt not Kershaw hill. Yeah. I mean that it's just like that's par for the course gets hurt a lot. He does does get turtle lot. That's just that's when you ever chilling team. You know that when he pitches he's going to be really really good, and he's not gonna pitch as much as you might like because you're gonna be that's just the reality of having him on your roster. Now, the good news is that the dodgers are one of the few teams that can weather something like this. I mean Clayton Kershaw who they're paying thirty three million dollars to is unavailable. Start the opener in its that's fine. Right. Walker? Buehler. Who is their number one guy and is been pushed back sprinters like. Yeah. Whatever. It's okay. Because you got stripling you have hill when he's ready to go. You have you have you have Majeida? You have all these guys that. I mean, you when everybody's right. You could arguably have eight guys that you could put in a must win situation. Feel pretty damn good about it. Yeah. Most teams don't have three. We had fantastic pitching the last couple of seasons. A story line that gives overshadow for a couple reasons. One the first run to the playoffs to the World Series. We had unexpected joy of Kalita, and we're like going holy cow. Where did he come from, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And so it's all about him all about him out about him pitching overshadow in the way, we talked about the dodgers last season. It was all about oh Matt Kemp at the beginning season. He's still got stuff Levin, then who's this mex- Muncie guy? And now channel my God..

"It's each like finish a big race car breaks down. But I don't need. I don't need to have a big race. In fact, I had a conversation with somebody other day about that they had a nice fancy Lamborghini, and I was having my Prius. I get this ain't place. They get to the finish line. They might get there faster. But it if you like Kershaw out on weekends two or three times a year. What's the point of having it at all because like taking cars out every now, and then that are nice. Maximize. We're getting off road with this one. The fact is. I think you're off road. They're on the road. You're off there on on the shoulder. Yeah. They're on real. I'm broken down the middle. Bit. Yeah. Again, the fact is that Clayton Kershaw being injured is not breaking news. No. It's not. They're prepared to deal with that. Yes. And what we need to do is accept the fact that he's not a number one. He's not on number two. He's likely I number three we hold them at highest team because what he's done. But when the team gets ready to play this is the order now. And so if you if you say a number three pitcher is coming back from a slow start you like going. Okay, we're straight because we still got our one and a two well, guess what that is reality. I wanted to are still finding ready to go. Clayton Kershaw is spoken of as to number one. But in reality, he's number three. But he's not. He's only spoken of as a number one to those people on the outside. But not to the team the team view him as their what? Because they took the ball from him last year and gave it to ferris bueller. Then that's toe that told him as well as us that they're going forward are going to rely on him as a number one guy. They should have known this. While ago, they if they hang tension a year this year and a half years ago Kershaw was still pitching amaze those pitch agree. Yeah. But but this is this is not outfield. This in. And again, I like we said he re to the dodgers Neil. You're our with the dodgers have done to build their roster. This kind of goes hand in hand with what they did with Harper. They had a price and they had a term the new we're very comfortable going to. And that's it the way that they set up the team. I trust them completely the way they go about putting together the roster the way they go about giving up the money the way they go about stacking with this guy's in the pitching staff this amount of guys here. The I have full faith in there. So they're comfortable with it. I'm comfortable with it. I just don't hope I just hope that we don't get to a point where you have Kershaw. And because and maybe like you were saying key the fact that they gave it to Walker bueller in the playoffs last year. Was that eight look we're not going to say it. But here's the announcement to the world that Buehler's the guy and not Kershaw. I just don't want to go back to that. Where all of a sudden they need to finagle a spot to get Kershaw into that big game that that needs to be an a review mirror. But I don't think they I don't think that they did that. Last year. All they didn't roll him out in the I'm trying to think if so long ago what game was that? That bueller Pige wants sixty theories the CIA was the play in game for the Rockies, the playing gave reasoning mind do it with Kershaw was because a what well it wasn't his term. Remember, he was kind of worked out in the best interest that the way that it shook out over the course of the season, and that it was more or less Buehler's turn anyway. So Kershaw it wasn't like. Okay. Kershaw was on turn. And they said hold it. Nope. This guy instead so worked out but had they was in short. It was something like he was going to do does you wouldn't move back right adjusted. If you wanna Kershaw for wants to see three you could've made it hap- happened. But they opted not to exactly so that to your point key was the announcement..

"And so he spent he worked like he never worked over the off season. He will on a sex ability. He worked at realigning his body. And I think part of shutting him down just a sense that I get sense from a little bit of. Frustration on the part of claim Kershaw that he's running back Adonis bullpen sessions. And I don't I'm not sure that the ball is coming out the way that he wanted the way that he expected to the way that would warrant all the work that he put into sop season. I think it's been a little bit tougher him to realize that now we'll get we'll he gets stronger as spring goes on. Will there be extra life in his fastball? When the season starts, I'm not sure maybe maybe that happens for him. But it's definitely something to watch claim Kershaw can shut down this early. Maybe it doesn't affect him initially for maybe those are issues come up later on in the year. And I think you're exactly right. I'm not sure if you could count on Clayton Kershaw anymore to be that workforce until two hundred any I mean, he hasn't done in about four years. So even just on that point that's cause for concern for dodgers fans, looking at Clayton Kershaw and not necessarily knowing the severity of the injury and whether to pop up again in what way though is Walker Bieler ready to be an ace. I think he's ready to be an ace. I think right now, I think a lot of people around the team a lot of people around baseball will tell you that right now he's the best pitcher on the dodgers. And it's no disrespect to incur Kershaw. Walkability? Just has the best stuff. I mean, he's got four or five pitches that he could throw at any time. You saw show up last year. He pitched great in that tiebreaker game against the rocky Seve and get the dodgers into the playoffs. He pitched grading game seven of the NFC s he's ready. He's one of the best young pitchers in the game. I think he's gonna be an all star this year. I think by the end of the year if he stays healthy. And there's no indication that he wouldn't he's going to be maybe vying for Cy Young, I think he's got that kind of stuff. And I think if you're the dodgers the important thing when you look at their roster. They have really good starting pitching debts, especially when hunching reuse accepted that qualifying offer. They're basically going into the of the season with six really capable. Orders. And that doesn't even include Julio aureus who was one of the best young prospects before he had shoulder surgery. He's looked really good during spring training. And he's probably gonna set the year in triple eight. They have that much depth. So alden. Look, I I know what's going on with Clayton Kershaw now. But does this at any point maybe him not be the or not being the opening day starter for this team? I know it's look Dave Roberts is going to allow him. And it's been like that for the last eight seasons. Now that he's been the opening day starter for the dodgers. But if this kind of continues could we see maybe the changing of the guard, and possibly can Clayton Kershaw not the opening day starter for the dodgers? I don't see that happening. It's going to be nine in a row now. Soclean Kerscher who the matter is the opening bass started thing is just the sort of tip of the cab respect thing. It doesn't always mean that that's your best pitcher because to be told when the season starts with off the guy's getting hurt. So rotation gets with around. It's not like just because you started opening day. You're going to be making more than anybody else. It's sort of just like a nominal title to respect thing. That's why I was no no surprise whatsoever. That they gave it to claim Kershaw if you'll make clean curbs how the opening day starter. He's going to get really upset about it. If you don't make walkability opening day starter. He's gonna totally understand because he shares the clubhouse Clayton Kershaw who won three Cy Young awards. Zola's covers the dodgers four ESPN. He is in spring training in the middle of it all as we speak..
