Kershaw rests...for now. Until evil returns.

The biggest news of the morning comes out of Los Angeles, and the good news is the Los Angeles Dodgers have been eliminated from the 2019 MLB postseason after losing game 5 of the NLDS in L.A. The Brute Squad would like to THANK the Washington Nationals for doing what many thought could not be done; for defeating the evil that has plagued our lands for too long! Praise be to the Nationals, the players, the owners, the front office, the back office, the scouts, the concession workers, laborers, and Nationals fans. FTD!

Clayton Kershaw DESTROYED after Dodger’s crushing NLDS loss.

The wild-card Nationals won 7-3 after a grand slam in the 10th by former Dodger Howie Kendrick off Joe Kelly.

“Just a terrible feeling,” Kershaw said.

Howie Kendrick’s grand slam in extras sends the Nationals to the NLCS.

It’s probably the most exciting moment of the postseason thus far. For sure it was the best moment of Kendrick’s career, especially since was having a rough go of it as of late. And it’ll certainly land in the top moments in franchise history.”

Such language.....and in the presence of Goldy?
