    Every time I see Kershaw pitch
    I remind myself how fortunate I am to be able to see him work.

    As kid, I felt like Koufax and Drysdale would just go on and on
    never contemplating that someday their reigns would someday end.

    Kershaw is now in his tenth MLB season at age twentynine.

    Savor it now.

  2. I think I heard that yesterday was the nine year anniversary of his first start. I should have written about it, I have tiny little family story related to it.
