Vin Scully won’t let the mayor name a street after him

27 Comments

Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti said Sunday that he wanted to rename a street near Dodger Stadium after Vin Scully, but the legendary announcer issued a statement via the team \saying he’s not interested in the honor:

The mayor of Los Angeles has a great deal more important things to do than name a street after me. And if he is considering the idea, better the street should be named after Walter or Peter O’Malley than myself.

All of which just makes me love Scully even more.

(Seriously though, would it be super crazy of me to suggest that the Dodgers rename the whole ballpark after Scully at some point?)

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.
