    BOSTON — There seems to be quite a bit of talk about continuity going into this year’s World Series. Well, hey, it’s the Cardinals and the Red Sox again. Fourth time. That was the matchup in ’46, with Stan Musial and Ted Williams, Enos Slaughter and Johnny Pesky, Red Schoendienst and Bobby Doerr and that…

    After 36 starts and 255 stellar innings, Clayton Kershaw finally let the Dodgers down on Friday, giving up seven runs in three-plus innings in Game 6 loss to the Cardinals.

    Ricky Nolasco Getty

    Here’s how everyone found out for sure that the Dodgers are starting Ricky Nolasco tonight: Zack Greinke walked into the media interview room and a reporter asked him if he’s pitching tonight, to which Greinke replied: “Nah, I don’t think so.” And so unlike in Game 4 of the NLDS, when the Dodgers bumped Nolasco…

    Ricky Nolasco Getty

    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly indicated earlier today that he could skip Ricky Nolasco and go with Zack Greinke on short rest if his team was facing elimination tomorrow, but it sounds like the idea isn’t dead even after Monday’s Game 3 victory over the Cardinals. According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Nolasco is currently…

  12. Down 2-0 in NLCS, Dodgers appear doomed

    Oct 12, 2013, 8:22 PM EDT

    Carl Crawford

    Not even 24 hours into a seven-game series, the Dodgers’ World Series hopes are already on life support. By failing to secure either of the first two games with Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw on the mound, they’ve become huge long shots to defeat the Cardinals in the NLCS. If there’s any reason for the…

    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly announced that Zack Greinke will start Game 1 of the NLCS against the Cardinals and Clayton Kershaw will take the mound in Game 2 after starting on short rest for the first time in his career to finish off the NLDS.

    Division Series - Los Angeles Dodgers v Atlanta Braves - Game One

    Clayton Kershaw has never started on three days’ rest. Now the Dodgers are asking him to do just that in Monday’s Game 4 against the Braves. Rather than trust Ricky Nolasco to close out the series, they’re going to bank on their ace who is about to win his second Cy Young Award. In a…
