Quote of the Day: Ron Gardenhire on the Prince Fielder signing

10 Comments

We began the day with some gratuitous profanity, so let’s end the day with some gratuitous profanity.  This is from Phil Mackey’s Twins’ notebook at 1500ESPN.com:

“(Expletive).”

— Gardenhire, when asked by a reporter what his thoughts where when the Tigers signed Prince Fielder.

Concise. To the point. I like it.

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.
