Occupy St. Louis to show a commercial-free World Series


The protests have been one thing, but moving on to the rebroadcast and redistribution of the pictures, accounts and descriptions of these games without the express written consent of Major League Baseball shows that the Occupy Wall Street is about nothing but anarchy!

Occupy St. Louis invited baseball fans on Tuesday to watch the World Series for free on a big screen at its campsite, and said it would stream its message against economic inequality between innings. The group, part of the nationwide Occupy Wall Street movement, said it would show the opening game of the series, which starts on Wednesday at Busch Stadium, at its Kiener Plaza campsite.

“Come watch the game with the 99 percent,” the group’s Facebook posting said. “Show the world that there isn’t a need for corporate sponsors to enjoy baseball.” “We will be projecting the game on our big screen, but without corporate sponsors. Commercials will be replaced with other Occupy groups’ livestream,” it said.

All I’ll say is thank God that it’s Fox and not TBS with the World Series. Because otherwise these people would never know when “The Big Bang Theory” was going to be on!

Clayton Kershaw completes spring training with a 0.00 ERA

Clayton Kershaw had nothing left to prove when he exited the mound during his last Cactus League start on Friday. He finished camp with a 0.00 ERA, made all the more impressive after he extended his scoreless streak to 21 1/3 innings following 6 2/3 frames of one-hit ball against the Royals.

In six spring training starts this year, the Dodgers southpaw racked up 12 hits, four walks and 23 strikeouts. His velocity appeared to fluctuate between the high-80s and low-90s from start to start, but manager Dave Roberts told reporters that he expects Kershaw to get back up to the 93 m.p.h. range next week. Kershaw is tabbed for his eighth consecutive Opening Day start on Thursday.

The 30-year-old lefty is poised to enter his 11th season with the club in 2018. He went 18-4 in 27 starts last year and turned in a 2.31 ERA, 1.5 BB/9 and 10.4 SO/9 over 175 innings. He suffered his fair share of bumps and bruises along the way, including a lower back strain that required a five-week stay on the disabled list.

The Dodgers will open their season against the Giants on Thursday, March 29 at 7:08 PM ET. Given the sudden rash of injuries that hit the Giants’ rotation earlier today, Kershaw’s Opening Day opponent has not yet been announced.
