Alex has, so far, written 25,439 comments and this was the latest, on Tony Kemp:

When Kemp made his ill-fated dash toward second in the 8th inning of Game 4, he was not testing the arm of a stranger.

From Tyler Kepner in the Times:

Kemp and Betts have a history — and played against each other when they were growing up in Tennessee. Betts rooted for Vanderbilt teams and always wanted to play for the Commodores, but when Kemp enrolled there and was the freshman of the year in the Southeastern Conference, Betts changed his mind.

“I know I’m not any better than Tony,” Betts told Chad Jenningsof The Athletic, describing his mind-set at the time. “I don’t want to sit behind him.”
