Major League Baseball is exploring ways to shorten games.
Clone Clayton Kershaw and Dallas Keuchel. Game 1 was an old-fashioned pitching duel. If it had been played in the ’70s or ’80s, both Kershaw and Keuchel would likely have pitched complete games.
You probably won’t see a shorter World Series game. Ever. Again. 2:28. In fact, when is the last time you’ve seen a baseball game — any baseball game — finish in under two and a half hours?
If we learned anything in Game 1, we found out that the Dodgers and the Astros are the two best teams in baseball. Clearly.
Tonight, Justin Verlander will help determine destiny for the Astros. He’s only 9-0 when wearing his Astros’ uniform and has run the gamut in performance from bulldog-to-dominant. It’s a pivotal game and the team has climbed on his shoulders.
Someone, though, needs to help spread the responsibility for destiny. Jose Altuve? George Springer? Carlos Correa? Yuli Gurriel?
