Are the Mariners interested in Johnny Damon?

The New York Post’s Joel Sherman tweets so. The Seattle’s Times’ Larry Stone expands, though there really isn’t anything there to illuminate how serious the Mariners’ interest really is.

The Mariners have been linked to everyone, it seems, so this could be anything from real interest to phony Boras-leverage-creation interest to some random mention of Damon’s name while a couple of Mariners’ interns were playing as the Royals in “High Heat ’99.

We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.

No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.

The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
