Old Style will continue to flow in Wrigley Field

Did you know that there was a chance that Old Style Beer — a fixture for over 60 years — would not be sold in Wrigley Field after this year?  Seems that the brewer and the Cubs have ironed out their differences, however, and have extended their pouring rights agreement through 2013.

Sorry Cubs fans. Make do the best you can.

Don’t look at me like that. Just because something is a tradition doesn’t mean it’s good.  Sickest I’ve ever been at a ballpark was after drinking Old Style while watching a game there back in 2000.  And it wasn’t because of the quantity. Stuff just sits like a brick on my stomach. And that was back when I had a 27-year-old stomach that could handle just about anything.

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.
