Former MLB All-Star Johnny Damon played for both the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees during his 18-year career , so he may have conflicted feelings about the American League Division Series between the two archrivals.However, he's made his pick鈥攁nd one of his former teammates is not thrilled with it.Damon recently acknowledged to TMZ Sports that he believes Boston is "better," but he made it known that New York is his team and he sees an upset happening:Well, Red Sox legend David Ortiz heard about those comments and wasn't having any of it.(Warning: Video contains profanity)"Johnny Damon did?!" Big Papi responded while laughing, per TMZ Sports. "That's some bulls--t Kyle Barraclough Jersey , isn't it! Red Sox all the way."This marks the first postseason meeting between the Red Sox and the Yankees since 2004. Damon and Ortiz were teammates on that Boston squad, helping the Red Sox become the first team in MLB history to rally from a 0-3 hole to win a postseason series as they fought back to take four straight from New York and win the American League Championship Series.That, of course, set the stage for the Red Sox to snap the 86-year championship drought, putting an end to the Curse of the Bambino.Damon would later sign with the Yankees after the 2005 season and spent four years in pinstripes. As of 2015 , perTMZ, Damon was not on speaking terms with Red Sox owner John Henry. Harry How/Getty ImagesFacing a midnight deadline to exercise his contract option, Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers have agreed to extend the window.Per an announcement from the Dodgers, Kershaw now has until 4 p.m. ET on Friday to decide if he will opt in to the final two years of his deal or become a free agent.If Kershaw opts in to his deal, the three-time National League Cy Young winner willearn$65 million through the 2020 season.Among the potential factors causing Kershaw to delay his decision are health and performance. The 30-year-old has spent time on the disabled list in each of the past three seasons and has reached the 200-inning mark just once since 2014.The 2018 season saw Kershaw become a different kind of pitcher. His average fastball velocity of 90.9 mph was the lowest of his career Orlando Arcia Jersey , leading to him throwing more sliders than ever before (42.3 percent), perFanGraphs.Despite the injuries and diminished velocity, Kershaw remained terrific with a 2.73 ERA and 155 strikeouts in 161.1 innings this season.The Dodgers are the only franchise Kershaw has ever known. Since making his MLB debut in 2008, he has made the NL All-Star team seven times and won five ERA titles, and in 2014 Jonathan Villar Jersey , he became the first NL pitcher to be named MVP since Bob Gibson (1968).
