Not ready to say goodbye

The Dodgers may not play in Chavez Ravine again in 2018. Clayton Kershaw may never pitch again in the Ravine as a Dodger. Both of these things are in play as the Dodgers head to Milwaukee to take on this tough Brewer team. To make sure neither of those things happens they just have to …

Clayton breaks green on the Weisman Chart

It was late afternoon and the raucous Chavez Ravine crowd was nervous as it appeared that the Dodger chances for taking a 3 – 2 game lead in the best of seven NLCS was in grave jeopardy. The Brewers had just taken the lead on a booming Cain double leaving runners on 2nd/3rd with the …

Clayton Kershaw thru age 29 and other thoughts

One thing stands out for me when reviewing the accomplishments of the greatest pitchers in baseball history through their age 29 seasons.  Of the fourteen pitchers to have accumulated at least 50 bWAR only two of them are left-handed.

Can Kershaw do his part?

By asking that question, what I mean is, can Clayton keep his team tied or better by the time he’s lifted by Dave Roberts? Max Scherzer will be a stern test, it could very well be much like Wednesday’s game when Thor/Bumgarner threw zeroes at each other. The difference in the game was that Thor …

The day that Clayton Kershaw embarrassed me at the futures game

Doesn’t seem possible that Clayton Kershaw’s futures game was almost ten years ago but father time doesn’t lie.  It was the summer of 2007 and I was lucky enough to get invited to San Franciso to watch the Future’s game by a friend of mine who was headed up to see his wife’s father.  His …

Better a shot than a knife, Kershaw gets an epidural

Multiple reports from LAD beat writers have Clayton Kershaw getting an epidural shot which would put him on the DL and leave the Dodgers scrambling for a starter on Friday.
