One day, if the Yankees sign C.J. Wilson and if he starts to lose the stuff that makes him a front line starter, he will certainly scare the crap out of people in New York, one pitch at a time. Until that day comes, however, he’ll have to be content to do it more directly. Like he did at the MLB Fan Cave recently:
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.
