Rays to start selling plaid "Braysers" at Saks Fifth Avenue


Remember those hideously awesome plaid “Brayers” the Rays have been wearing?
Well, according to Mark Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times the Rays are working on a deal to sell them at Saks Fifth Avenue … for $300 each.
For that money you can get a “custom made” Brayser “through the same New York City boutique run by local designer Julia Alarcon that made the team’s original blazers.”
And manager Joe Maddon will also consider you a “real man.”

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.
