"Sensitive Soul" Clayton Kershaw Has Feelings Hurt By Vocal Red Sox Fans

Before the 114th World Series started, pundits strained to make those lame LA-Boston comparisons—you know: Magic vs. Bird; chowder vs. whatever the hell they eat in La-La land; gridlock on the Southeast Expressway versus gridlock on the 405. Blah, blah, blah. But something happened in Game One that actually fed into this East Coast-West Coast narrative. Specifically, it was Dodger pitching coach Rick Honeycutt complaining about how Boston fans "treated" the oh-so-fragile Clayton Kershaw during his pre-game warm-ups in the bullpen. Listen to this from Honeycutt: "Brutal. Pretty brutal. What I don’t understand is why baseball allows it. You’ve got the rubber right there and people literally standing over you." Oh, poor baby. Welcome to the East Coast, snowflake! This ain't Malibu.
