This is kind of a mess. Apparently the Baltimore Grand Prix is being run this weekend and this afternoon they’re closing streets and creating havoc to prepare for it. Only problem: the Blue Jays-Orioles game that just got underway. Someone I know is at the game and she tweeted about the sparse crowd. I’m guessing this explains some of it.
I mean really, for the Jays-Orioles there must be dozens of people inconvenienced
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.
