Shameless Self-Promotion: I got interviewed about a lot of stuff

2 Comments

Because you people don’t get enough of my opinions around here, I offer you a link to an interview for which I (virtually) sat yesterday with my friend Russ Smith over at SpliceToday.  Among the topics covered:

  • How much money will Derek Jeter make in his next deal and what A-Rod may have to do with it;
  • What I’d do about baseball’s Umpires Gone Wild problem;
  • A somewhat extended discussion of immigration policy in which I am totally unqualified to take part but did so anyway because what is life without bullcrap amateur opinions;
  • How long it takes me to write a post; and
  • Assorted rants about the DH, realignment, the Orioles, the Phillies and how I’m so damn smart to have picked the Braves in the NL East at the beginning of the season.

Other stuff too.  If you like what I write here, you’ll probably like what I went on about over there. If you don’t like what I write here I’m rather shocked that you’re still reading.

Dodgers announce World Series rotation order

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.
