    Red Sox fans and players singing New York, NY after big wins is the dumbest thing in sports.

    I...cannot argue with this. After the last 14 years, there's no reason why they should be doing this, and certainly not in Dodger stadium. Why the hell are the Yankees still in their heads?

    Kershaw's postseason career ERA is 4.32 -- almost a full two points higher than his regular season ERA. It's not fair comparing anyone to Bumgarner, but his ERA is almost a full point lower in the postseason including a ridiculous 0.25 in three World Series.

    Apparently Kershaw has the second highest spread between regular and post season ERA for any pitcher that has pitched at least 50 postseason innings. The only guy higher is a Tim Wakefield, a knuckleballer.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    6+ ERA in potential elimination games. iirc, it's the worst in MLB history for anybody with at least 5 such starts.
    I'm like LeBron James.

    yeah it sucks. Kersh is a fantastic guy and can grind in a regular season like no other, but he isn't even average when it comes to post season pitching. Early in his career when he could still crank his fastball up to 94-97 it seemed like his post season woes were more woes against the Giants and Cardinals, but now that he struggles to hit 91-92 on his fastball, he just does not have the same stuff and has to rely on his offspeed pitches to get outs and sometimes the offspeed stuff just isn't working which makes him incredibly hittable. Maybe he should get preemptive Tommy Johns so he can get his velocity back up there. Buehler and Urias are the future and Kersh will be better when he is someone's 3rd or 4th starter.
