But he does have a very interesting story to tell - one he has been asked to tell countless times since emerging as an unexpectedly essential piece of this World Series team.

As good as their pitches are and as much as they like to throw them, the Dodgers have trouble hitting them, too.

Major League Baseball's deceptive depth of statistical information might provide some illuminating comparisons between the Dodgers and Astros heading into the 113th World Series.

The Astros were in involved in 1968 in one of the longest games in major league history.

Taylor delivered the punchline in his usual flat tone but with enough of a smile to indicate he was kidding - we think.

The diminutive second baseman always seemed to be right in the middle of things whenever something turned out well for the Astros, whether it was a sterling defensive play or key hit that sparked a game-changing inning.

In the 2017 MLB World Series today, Monday, October 23, you can live stream the Houston Astros vs. LA Dodgers Game 71for free, without cable. And the Dodgers are ending a nearly 30-year absence from the World Series - and hoping to come out with the top prize, which could include a serious pay day. Sure Kershaw can get to Kenley Jansen most games but what about the other games. In the end, Roberts followed the "If it ain't broke" school of thought.

Edge: Dodgers. We just made that one up for the Astros because it seemed fitting.

"They are a talented group, the best in the American League all year", said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.

The storm affected the Astros, too.

Keuchel had two stints on the 10-day disabled list this season because of a pinched nerve in his neck and neck discomfort, sidelining him from May 20- 26 and June 8-July 27. Although their ballpark, Minute Maid Park, survived Harvey largely unscathed, the team was forced to play three "home" games in St. Petersburg, Florida, in late August as floodwaters crippled parts of the city.

The Astros won 101 regular-season games of their own, finishing one game behind the Cleveland Indians for the best record in the American League.

"Up there with getting married and having kids, it's right up there with one of the best days of my life", Kershaw, 29, said of reaching the Fall Classic. They had seen the devastation and responded. The team began the playoffs with six straight victories, sweeping the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NLDS and needing just five games to beat the defending champion Chicago Cubs in the NLCS. "On the position players' side, everyone seems to be doing well".

A 1995 study by professors Mark D. Kraft and Brent R. Skeeter showed that a fly ball travels an average 16 feet farther in temperatures greater than 90 degrees than a ball traveling in 50 degrees.

If the Series goes to Game 6 and 7 back in L.A., the heat streak will be over. "At that point in time, he was on a back field".
