Who am I?

I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Sportsman of the Week Ending 10/16/2016

Autumn sports in full swing, with football (college and pro), MLB baseball playoffs, and now NHL starting.  But the baseball playoffs have everything you want.  Including star power in Tinseltown.  Clayton Kershaw seems to pitch just about every game.  Well, this week he almost did.  In four games (2 NLDS against the Washington Nationals and 2 NLCS against the Chicago Cubs), Kershaw started two and saved one.  Dodgers, 3-1 (and two of the three were elimination games, the third might as well have been if Los Angeles lost).  Numbers are decent (3.14 ERA, 18K in 14.1, 1W, 1Sv).  Note that 3 of the 5 runs he gave up were inherited runners, but his work has been key to the Dodgers hanging around and in the NLCS against a heavily favored Cubs team.  Kershaw will start again in Game 6, making Games 3-5 suddenly must win games.  Unless he starts Game 5, and relieves Game 7.  Either way, Kershaw is the biggest weapon in the NLCS and he is our Sportsman of the Week!
