Kershaw Not Likely To Start Opening Day

Not Kershaw. I hope.

My god, the news just keeps on getting worse.

Kershaw won't start Opening Day 2019:

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Manager Dave Roberts all but conceded on Monday that Clayton Kershaw won’t be ready to start Opening Day for the Dodgers.

“That’s fair,” Roberts said, when asked if the 24 days between now and March 28, plus the left shoulder injury that has kept Kershaw off a mound, equals a likely change in plans.

“The main thing is he’s trending in the right direction, and when he’s game ready is when he’s game ready,” said Roberts.

Is it FAIR, Doc? FAIR???? After two World Series losses, is anything in this life fair at all anymore?!

The last non-Kershaw Opening Day starter was...Vicente Padilla, in 2010. And we lost.

I need a drink.
