Friday, the Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to change the name of Elysian Park Avenue in recognition of the longtime broadcaster. To show their support, new skipper Dave Roberts, pitcher Clayton Kershaw and a host of other Dodgers (past and present...

The Worst Clayton Kershaw Pitches of 2015

The search for utopia is futile one. For humans to truly appreciate happiness, we must always be reminded of our sadness. If happiness were a constant, it would become no longer desirable. A world without imperfections is a world impure. And so to truly appreciate Clayton Kershaw is more than to simply watch a glorious seven-minute YouTube highlight video of Vin Scully calling every...

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...

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 18...

WATCH: Clayton Kershaw spikes ball, throws it into dugout

By TOC Staff Clayton Kershaw got frustrated on Tuesday night in Oakland. After not getting a borderline call with two strikes on Danny Valencia in the third inning, the Dodgers pitcher couldn’t handle an infield dribbler. 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...
