First Down: NASCAR’s first Hall of Fame class
Question of the Day
NEWSMAKERS WHO’S MAKING HEADLINES THIS WEEK
Remember those 11 blown saves and that 7.21 ERA from the regular season? Seems like ages ago. In the playoffs he’s 2-for-2 with a 0.00 ERA.
The lockdown Rockies closer was 35-for-37 during the season but was saddled with both losses at home as the Rockies bowed out of the playoffs.
Like Street, Boston’s ace closer was down to the final strike to keep his team alive. Then he allowed the first earned runs of his career in the postseason.
Another guy with seemingly untouchable stuff didn’t have his best days in the ALDS against the Yankees, finishing with a 9.00 ERA.
Not nearly as bad statistically as some other closers in the first round, the Cardinals pitcher did blow his one save opportunity vs. the Dodgers.
TWT FIVE NASCAR’S FIRST HALL OF FAME CLASS
The inaugural NASCAR Hall of Fame class will be announced Wednesday. Here’s who should get ushered in first:
1. Richard Petty — The first of two no-brainers. The question: How long will his dad, Lee, have to wait to get in?
2. Dale Earnhardt — The late seven-time champ is the other no-brainer.
