Yu Darvish should call Livan Hernandez

I was just curious just how historically bad Yu was in this World.  Not as bad as I thought but pretty bad. I looked at every World Series game in the 21st century with a game score less than or equal to 30.

Looking at this list my first thought is that given we are only at 2017 in the 21st century, there sure have been a boatload of putrid starts.

And once again, I get to thank Russ Ortiz for 2002, though it is not as much fun since they have won three rings. It was really fun when they had no rings.

Yu Darvish and Livan Hernandez are on the list twice.  They both crapped out in the same World Series and in the same order. Game 3 and Game 7.

Remember this. Next time a pitcher is horrible in game 3 of a World Series and is due to pitch game seven, don’t let him.
