Clayton Kershaw was one of the Dodgers’ pitchers who got absolutely demolished in the Astros’ cheating system. If anyone has a right to be upset, it’s probably him and Yu Darvish. Kershaw called in to the Dan Patrick show to discuss playing games without crowds and the Astros.

The call with Dan Patrick addressed several aspects of the Astros but touched on the idea of playing without crowds as well. Major League Baseball has suspended games as of now, but there is a chance teams could end up playing without spectators to start the season. Kershaw took full advantage to make a joke at the Astros’ expense. When Patrick said that it would be difficult for the Astros to use the garbage can, Kersh had a classic response.
I think they might get caught this time, for sure.
Kershaw and the Dodgers fell to the Astros in seven games during the 2017 World Series. In-game five, the Astros piled six earned runs on Kershaw en route to a 13-12 win. That set the stage for the Astros to take the series in a decisive Game Seven a few days later.
