What do Clayton Kershaw and pumpkins have in common?They both get carved up in October. Is that a bit of a cheap shot? Sure.Does the Los Angeles Dodgers ace deserve it after yet another embarrassing performance on the October stage? Yes.To put a finer point on it: After Kershaw's latest flop Friday in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series Dave Henderson Jersey , it's worth wondering if he'll ever cement his status among the greatest pitchers of all time.In a scant three innings against the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park, Kershaw coughed up five runs (four earned) on six hits with two walks and two strikeouts.Most damningly, he surrendered a game-tying home run to Milwaukee reliever Brandon Woodruff, who was hitting from the left side.Ouch.Jae C. Hong/Associated PressIt was far from the dominant showing the Dodgers were counting on and teed up a 6-5 Brewers victory.There's plenty of series left. Los Angeles can bounce back, and Kershaw will almost assuredly pitch again.But it was yet another checkered chapter in Kershaw's up-and-down postseason history. Great as he's been overall, his bumpy playoff resume is a significant blemish on his permanent record.After Friday's outing, Kershaw's career postseason ERA sits at 4.26 in 133 innings. That's enough of a sample size to draw conclusions, and they aren't great.In fact, they're downright mediocre.All too often under the game's brightest lights, Kershaw has wilted.No one denies he's a generational talent. He's won three NL Cy Young Awards , an NL MVP trophy and amassed50.7 WAR since 2011, according toFanGraphs, easily the highest total of any pitcher during that span.In March 2017, The Ringer's Ben Lindbergh made a credible case for Kershaw as a historically special arm, in the company of hallowed, top-tier Hall of Famers.With all that stipulated, he needs to do it now. He needs to dig in his heels and prove his mettle when the pressure and stakes are cranked up to eleven.Kershaw is 8-8 in the postseason after laying an egg in Game 1 against the Brewers. That's the definition of mediocre and wholly unbecoming a transcendent player.The Dodgers showed resilience Friday despite Kershaw's ho-hum effort and made it a game to the bitter end. They might come back against the Brewers regardless of Kershaw's contributions, though defeating the defending champion Houston Astros or potent Boston Red Sox in the World Series will be a taller task.Jae C. Hong/Associated PressLos Angeles hasn't hoisted a Commissioner's Trophy since 1988. Kershaw has done incredible things in Dodger blue, but he hasn't carried his club across the finish line.Listen to what he told reporters after the Dodgers' Game 7 loss to the Astros in the 2017 Fall Classic: "Maybe one of these days, I won't fail Santiago Casilla Jersey , we won't fail and we'll win one of these things. There's only one team that can succeed. There's only one team that wins the last game, so that's tough."Setting aside the defeatist language, he's right. It is tough. So were the four errors the Dodgers committed in their Game 1 loss. There was blame to go around, as Mike Petriello of noted:Mike Petriello mike_petrielloFeels like the loud part here is going to be quot;Kershaw loses a postseason gamequot; and the quiet part will be quot;... and the Dodgers forgot how to play defense, entirely.quot;A big blame scoop must be heaped on Kershaw's plate, however. He was asked to summon greatness, and he responded with a less-than-replacement-level effort.His average fastball velocity dipped to 91.4 mph this year from a career average of 93.8 mph. He's wrestled with back and arm injuries and will turn 31 in March.If you're searching for red flags, you can find them.On the other hand, he's carved up enough big leaguers to deserve a seat at the all-time greatness table. Recall, he twirled eight shutout innings in a division-series win Oct. 5 against the Atlanta Braves. On the other Clayton Richard Jersey , other hand, after another playoff face-plant, he remains a pumpkin.Is that a cheap shot? Sure.Is it also accurate until further notice? Yes.All statistics current as of Friday and courtesy of FanGraphs. Harry How/Getty ImagesThe celebration continues for the Boston Red Sox.The team clinched their fourth World Series title in the past 14 years on Sunday night with a 5-1 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers, and now it's parade time in Boston.Ahead is all you need to know about the parade, including TV and live-streaming information and a route map.Red Sox Championship ParadeDate:Wednesday, Oct. 31Start Time:11 a.m. ET (rain or shine)TV:MLB NetworkLive-Stream:WBZ 4 (Boston's CBS affiliate)Parade RouteThe Boston Globe BostonGlobePlanning on heading to the #RedSox victory parade tomorrow?

The parade then will head straight onto Cambridge Street and finish at New Sudbury Street."ExpectationsThe excitement was already starting to build for the team and players last night:Boston Red Sox RedSoxGnight fam.

Could we see him announce just that during the parade?Once free agency begins, the focus will be on the likes of Craig Kimbrel, Nathan Eovaldi and Steve Pearce, who could all conceivably be brought back at the right price.For now, it's all about celebrating an amazing 2018 season.
