Must-Click Link: the oral history of “Major League”

37 Comments

Great stuff over at Sports Illustrated today: interviews with the director and most of the cast of “Major League.”  It’s long, but anyone who has seen and loved that movie will agree that it’s worth it.

If you simply don’t have the time, however, go to Big League Stew, where Rob Iracane lists what he feels to be the top ten revelations of the piece.  My favorite: that Wesley “Willie Mays Hayes” Snipes is really slow in real life.

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.
