Watch Clayton Kershaw play William Tell with Jimmy Kimmel

Jul 29, 2014, 1:00 PM EDT

Pitchers are said to have good control when they can place the pitch in a given location at will. But there’s some play there, of course. A couple of inches in either direction usually isn’t considered being wild.

When you’re aiming at someone’s head, however, a couple of inches may matter. And when you’re throwing a non-regulation baseball, with no warmup while wearing a suit-jacket, you can expect more than a couple of inches of play.

    Of course he would have…with a first pitch Uncle Charlie. Is there any doubt?

    Why bleepbleep why. You guys feeding into this is exactly what he wanted. Craig loves to mess with fans, and most Cardinal fans eat it right up.

    I really doubt Waino would take the time out of a busy schedule during a tight division race to appear on a comedy talk show. Just not the Cardinal Way.

      There is no crying in baseball. There is also no fun in baseball.

      What show could he appear on that airs from st. louis? The daily farm crop and hog report?

    These guys really need to read a biography of William S. Burroughs.
