Dodgers beat the Rays in Game 1 of the #WorldSeries. https://t.co/UNszWV5hr4In retrospect, the way the Dodgers should have managed Clayton Kershaw in the postseason for all those years was ju… https://t.co/2c5ShNWaUB
Retweeted by Marc Carig @jonlschwartz @DaniWex Did you know that the 1926 World's Series ended on a TOOTBLAN by Babe Ruth? @jonlschwartz @DaniWex you’re making this upWhat a way to get out of an inning! Victor González catches a 105.6 MPH hit to turn the double play! https://t.co/2h25YnuBFs
Retweeted by Marc Carig @DaniWex what a great question.Kiermaier, who could barely swing a few days ago, now has a dinger and an RBI single against a lefty.Clayton Kershaw 6 IP, 2 H, 1 ER, 8 Ks https://t.co/oKxSTV8Hcb
Retweeted by Marc CarigBy run differential, the ‘20 Dodgers are the ‘27 Yankees. That’s how they look tonight in Game 1.Big game? You Betts.Mookie Betts is so much fun to watch.There has to be a better nickname than #Yarbs, who was shown warming up in the bullpen.It is a healed anatomy game: Bellinger’s shoulder is fine and so is Kiermaier’s wrist. The winner apparently will h… https://t.co/G9cP02Xg5u
Retweeted by Marc CarigKiermaier could barely swing a few days ago. It appears his wrist is fine.Wait, if they’re giving away tacos for them, wouldn’t the stolen bases be the real empty calories?The shoulder seems fine. @FabianArdaya that’s the good stuff fabsThe Rays strike out a lot anyhow. So, Clayton Kershaw breaking off sliders like that will be problematic.A bit more on what @Ken_Rosenthal just discussed on the television. https://t.co/j3ZgLtuNim @JAT58810217 thank’s! @MarcCarig All those empty calories man. Not enough proteins.
Retweeted by Marc Carig @MattyMays old school managers say point sometimes. i don’t know why. but i like it sometimes!The Rays’ first chance to put up a point against the Dodgers fizzles out. Home runs have masked how badly they’ve struggled offensively.Arozarena’s boots are made for walking.Did they run out of base ball players to talk about base ball?Clayton Kershaw is the enduring presence of this era of playoff baseball.
