When the rotation came out Everyone

By: John55

was happy about Kershaw being available for game 5. Every sports talk guy mentioned how great an advantage it would be for the Dodgers. Every Dodger fan who called in thought it was a great idea. Beuhler would go six, Kershaw 2, Jansen one. When it didn’t work, all the same sports talk people questioned why Kershaw was brought out to pitch the 8th. Not one person raised a concern about Kershaw not being a relief pitcher. The Dodgers bullpen is volatile. If Friedman has any trust in those guys, Kershaw wouldn’t have been out there. It was a desperation move. I don’t recall Torre ever putting Pettite out there in relief unless it was extra innings and no arms were left.
