This is awful.

Charley Steiner didn't even get out his knock-off It's Time for Dodger Baseball before it was 1-0. And now 2-0.

"And 81 year oid - Jesus - Sandy Koufax gets the nod for game 7"
There’s an awesome story that Buzzy Bavasi wanted to take Koufax for the Padres in the 1969 expansion draft, as he was still only 30 or something and his arm was feeling better. But the O’Malleys basically told him they’d have him killed if he dared go there.

Not so snazzy of a story, but the Dodgers were going to trade Jackie Robinson to the Giants after the 1956 season but Jackie retired instead.

Buster Kirkjian told a story during the Cubs series about how Darvish gets so incredibly wound up during crucial starts that he sometimes will vomit between innings.

I mean, maybe Bavasi wanted to take him. (And Koufax would have been 33.) But given how badly injured Koufax was when he retired, I can't imagine he would have seriously considered it.
