Dillon Gee of the Mets has embraced a new training regimen. And you can read all about it over at NJ.com. His trenchant analysis of it:
“Pilates is awesome,” Gee said. “You think it’s for chicks, and it should be easy — and it’s hard.”
I guess Pilates is not one of those things like yoga that improves both the body and the mind. Oh well.
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.
