If Clayton Kershaw struggles at any time in the World Series you’re likely to hear how much Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine struggled in the postseason, even if it’s not true.
While it’s true that neither was as dominant as they were in the regular season, they were still solid.
Maddux had a 3.27 ERA in 198 IP with a 1.242 WHIP. In five World Series starts he compiled a 2.09 ERA.
Glavine was even better on the biggest stage, completing three of eight starts. He allowed just 33 hits in 58 IP, good for a 2.13 ERA. His October ERA: 3.30 in 218 IP with a WHIP nearly identical to Maddux.
