Maybe Kershaw is the curse?

Forget about the Sports Illustrated curse, maybe the curse is the Dodgers starting pitcher tonight.

On July 23rd the game started by Kershaw the Dodger record was 68 – 31.  On August 31st the last game before Kershaw would make his first start back from the disabled list, the Dodger record was 91 – 41.

They went 23 – 10 while Kershaw was on the DL.

The only game they have won since Clayton came off the DL was his first start on Sept 1st, 1 – 0.

They are now 1 – 11 since Clayton Kershaw came off the disabled list.

If only it was so simple to use such a simplistic cause and effect.

But it isn’t.

The Dodgers are currently the worse team in baseball not because of Clayton Kershaw but because:

For Sure:

  • The left fielders suck
  • The 2nd baseman suck
  • The starting catchers sucks
  • The first innings sucks
  • The bullpen has sucked at key moments

Why/Maybe?

  • Too many cooks in the kitchen?
  • Front office failed chemistry class?
  • Team got complacent and it is taking a while to get back the game face they had when they steamrolled lousy teams?
  • Adrian Gonzalez is cursed?
  • Taylor/Turner/Bellinger/Seager went from MVP candidates to mere mortals?

    Adrian Gonzalez 2017
    He is not cursed, he just has a bad back and isn’t good anymore
    So say the numbers

    PA – 2B – HR – AVG – OBP – SLG – wRC+ – Time period
    96 – 5 – 0 – .259 – .337 – .318 – 79 – 4/3 to 4/30

    55 – 4 – 1 – .269 – .273 – .404 – 73 – 5/1 to 5/31

    31 – 2 – 0 – .214 – .258 – .286 – 44 – 6/1 to 6/11

    July – DID NOT PLAY

    50 – 4 – 1 – .191 – .220 – .340 – 43 – 8/18 to 8/31

    11 – 1 – 0 – .273 – .273 – .364 – 66 – 9/2 to 9/11

    243 – 16 – 2 – .242 – .285 – .341 – 65 – 2017 Season to Date

    The day before Gonzalez received his latest needle treatment it was reported that Gonzalez would not be on the playoff roster.
    Then he gets the epidural and he is now gonna play some more.

    WHY? Does he have a superman cape that he has been hiding all season and now he is gonna break it out?
    The numbers are too consistent. He is done.
    Huge contract, good buddy with Roberts or no, done, done and done.

    At this point it is a disservice to the team to pretend otherwise.

    Jus sayin

        It is a little more difficult posting with the s note phone rather than with a keyboard.
        I needed to answer a call and inadvertently hit the post button when I returned.
