There is a leftover tidbit to this year's World Series Game 3, when umpire Jim Joyce called obstruction at third base to end the game and send the Boston Red Sox to defeat.

Thank you, Miguel Cabrera. You too, Josh Hamilton.
From someone who is voting for the American League Most Valuable Player award, it's really nice to have an easy choice when you write the first name on the ballot — or type it, actually, as the...

Clayton Kershaw won't pitch against the Boston Red Sox this weekend. Zack Greinke won't, either.
The way the Dodgers are playing these days, it might not matter.
