Yasiel Puig, Clayton Kershaw and a game of chicken

Everything coming out of the Dodgers’ front office so far this winter has pointed to reducing player salaries and building around young talent. This doesn’t mean the collective wallet will be closed. I still think the Dodgers end up with Zack Greinke or David Price. But if they don’t, their best and most attractive trade chip to get a replacement is Yasiel Puig. Dealing him...

Greatest non-Cy Young seasons in history

Bryce Harper won the National League Most Valuable Player this season, and the vote was unanimous. Kris Bryant won the NL Rookie of the Year, and the vote was unanimous. Josh Donaldson‘s American League MVP victory wasn’t quite as clear-cut — 23 to seven over Mike Trout — and Dallas Keuchel‘s AL Cy Young even less so — 22 to eight over David Price. Still, most of the...

Clayton Kershaw isn’t the Clayton Kershaw of everything

I don’t know if Clayton Kershaw is going to win the Cy Young Award, but I know he deserves to as much as anybody else. Three years ago, he won the Cy Young by allowing a .521 OPS. Two years ago, he won the Cy Young by allowing a .521 OPS. This year, he might win the Cy Young after allowing a .521 OPS. Maybe he wouldn’t mind a loss so much; he’s already won three of these things...

Clayton Kershaw and his quest for 300 strikeouts

Six. There are only six strikeouts separating Clayton Kershaw from joining the 300 K club.

On Tuesday September 29 Kershaw pitched a complete game with 13 strikeouts in exactly 104 pitches against cross-state rivals the San Francisco Giants. A game in which the Los Angeles...

Clayton Kershaw and his chance at 300 strikeouts

Talk to any player in baseball and that player will tell you the most important thing is winning. That player will tell you he doesn’t care if he goes 0-for-4 if his team still wins the game. That isn’t always all true, but winning tends to be the priority, and at least in the moment, players don’t care so much about the numbers. It’s one of the many differences between baseball...

Clayton Kershaw may be having his best year yet

So, remember earlier in the year when Clayton Kershaw was done, or whatever the hell the narrative was? Over his first nine starts this year, Kershaw had an unacceptable (for him, at least) 4.32 ERA with 73 strikeouts and 16 walks in 58 1/3 innings. The good news for Dodgers fans is that the struggles were really limited to the first third of Kershaw’s season. In his last...

WATCH: Clayton Kershaw spikes ball, throws it into dugout

Clayton Kershaw got frustrated on Tuesday night in Oakland. After not getting a borderline call on Danny Valencia in the third inning, Kershaw couldn’t handle an infield dribbler off the bat of Valencia…and then, he snapped. Kershaw spikes the ball, catches it anyway. Kershaw fires the ball into the dugout while barely looking, manages to hurt no one, immediately gets a...
