The World Series is set and it will start tomorrow. It will be the two teams with the best records in baseball: American League Champion Tampa Bay Rays vs National League Champion Los Angeles Dodgers.
In Game One, it will be Tyler Glasnow on the bump for the Rays. Glasnow is 2-1 this postseason, having started the clinching game against the Yankees and Toronto. He’s pitched in big games all postseason for the Rays, but got roughed up in his only AlCS start, giving up four runs over eight innings in a losing effort. He has one of the biggest curveballs in baseball, complimented by a lively 101 mph fastball.
Clayton Kershaw looks to bounceback after yet another disappointing postseason outing where he was outdueled by Bryse Wilson and gave up four earned over five innings of work. His postseason ERA is 4.31 lifetime and he’s tied with Greg Maddux for the most postseason outings of giving up four earned or more. Yet, a stellar World Series and a championship could solidify his legacy. Kershaw also has a devastating curveball and has used it to win five ERA titles, while posting a 2.43 lifetime, 2526 Ks, and a career record that features 99 more wins than it does losses. The 8x All-Star has an MVP and a Triple Crown to his credit.
