Kershaw Gags....Useless Related Trivia

Recommended Posts

Clayton Kershaw gave up two HRs in three batters last night.  If anyone needs reminding how dominant Mariano Rivera was, he gave up two HRs in the postseason as well.....TOTAL.....while facing 527 batters. 

Name the two guys that hit postseason bombs off of Mo.

I would have guessed the other one would have stuck out to you a little more, even though its a lesser known player.

Same game as the one of the biggest POS in MLB history threw a bat at Piazza.

I was there. I should Fockin remember. If it wasnt Zeile, and we know it's not Piazza I can't remember. Not Ventura , I would remember that. The second baseman, what's his name, Spanish guy, big hitter for a while?

Edgardo Alfonzo.....but not the right answer.

Mets scored 5 in the top of the ninth to make a 6-0 game turn into a 6-5 final. This HR was a three run bomb in the midst of that inning.

I know. If I remember correctly Piazza hit one to dead center that looked like it was going out but it fell short. I'm never going to get it. Long time ago.

CF for the Mets, I think he was runner up for ROY that year.

EDIT TO ADD:  He was third in ROY, according to baseball reference

2004

 

MAriano pitched 1 inning and Kerslaw was on his 8th.  

Mariano let up 2 HRs in a game 5 times in his career and he pitched 1 inning.

Hrmm, my brain is struggling..  I think Ricky Henderson was on that team but, i don't remember him on the playoff roster.  There was Bell and Payton also, the answer is probably Jay Payton but, I can't for the life of me remembering it happening. 

Side trivia, a starting QB in the NFL had a daddy on that team...  Too easy but, have at it.

I bet it was fun catching Mo.

You never had to put down a sign, never had to worry about anything. You could basically tell the batter, "Okay, you know what's coming - good luck! " :lol:

mo pitched 141 innings in 16 years in the playoffs.

Kershaw has pitching 158 innings in 9 years

More tired innings = more chances to let up HR 

Rivera never pitched tired in his life.  1 inning just isn't that impressive. Sorry.  

Keith Foulke dominated a post season and helped a team win a world series.

Kershaw came into the game last night presumably rested.  :dunno:

Trying to discredit Rivera is trolling at its worst Ed.  If it was as unimpressive as you think, wouldn't more guys have records like him?

Not trolling. closers just aren't that impressive, sorry.

I would have guessed like Bill Mueller

 

He got Mariano at Fenway in July of 04. Walk off. It was the day of the Varitek- A-Rod "fight". I rooted for Varitek. I was at Fenway that day. The ball got hit right at us in right field. Sheffield just watched it sail. Got our balls busted good. Great time, one of the best days I ever had at a game.
