While with the Dodgers, I remember him as one of those guys who was "now pitching middle relief, but we're hoping he can be a starter one day", he did get a few starts in with the Dodgers before he moved on to the Royals. Rest in Peace.

Major League Baseball World Series Championship

Is this the official title of the World Series. A tad cumbersome.
