Clayton Kershaw had a weird night. His stuff was not as on-point as it has been recently. But he still pitched effectively and stood to be the winner before the Dodgers bullpen Dodgers bullpenned all over the game.
But that aside there was a lot worth seeing in his performance. Like this great play:
And this great tantrum:
The first one makes you want to say “That’s not fair.” The second one is as if Kershaw himself is saying “THAT’S NOT FAIR!”
LAS VEGAS — Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski strongly signaled that the team was unlikely to re-sign Craig Kimbrel, telling the assembled Boston media contingent that, “we’re not looking to make a per se big expenditure in that area.” Referring to the bullpen.
Kimbrel, who saved 42 games for the World Series champs, was recently reported to be seeking a six-year contract. I doubt he gets that, but he’ll get a pretty big deal nonetheless, and the Sox obviously feel like they can manage with a cheaper option in the back of the bullpen.
