The Dodgers made a huge mistake by starting Darvish in Game 7
The analytics told Dodgers Manager Dave Roberts that Yu Darvish was the choice to start Game 7. The analytics were wrong. For the second time in the series, Darvish got rocked, and L.A. never had a chance.
Clayton Kershaw came in and pitched 4 scoreless innings in relief, and prompted immediate second guessing by fans and media that he should have gotten the ball with everything on the line.
At the trade deadline, the Dodgers could have had Darvish or Justin Verlander. They went with Darvish because he had far better stats. Houston ended up with the star Verlander and now they have a title.
Andrew Luck sitting out for the season is the best thing for him and the Colts
The Colts made it official that Andrew Luck won’t throw a pass this season when they announced they had placed their franchise quarterback on injured reserve.
Colin first predicted Luck wouldn’t play this season several months ago because he thought new Colts GM Chris Ballard wouldn’t risk Luck’s long-term health by putting him on the field with a team that he’s in the process of tearing down and rebuilding. Colin was right.
Now the Colts can start next year, hopefully, with Luck at 100% and Ballard can parlay what is likely to be a high draft pick and quarterback Jacoby Brissett into more players to hopefully surround him with a competitive team.
There’s no question it was the right move.
