Would you trade Bumgarner for Kershaw?

The San Francisco Giants are on the doorstep of winning the World Series, and the main man they have to thank is Madison Bumgarner. The lefty southpaw was flat-out filthy in San Francisco’s 5-0 Game 5 win against the Kansas City Royals, nearly single-handedly securing the Giants a 3-2 lead in the series. In his 117-pitch, complete game shutout, Bumgarner allowed just four hits...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw and more

On Tuesday, Clayton Kershaw was rolling. He was wheeling and dealing. The breaking ball of the Los Angeles Dodger ace was fooling so many hitters in that St. Louis Cardinal lineup. Pitching on three days rest, the only hit he gave up within the first six innings was to right fielder Randal Grichuk. The Dodgers were up 2-0, and it looked like the National League Division Series was...

Reporter Pisses Clayton Kershaw Off With Idiotic Question (Video)

Clayton Kershaw has had a tale of two seasons, a Cy Young caliber regular season juxtaposed against a not-so-glamerous post season where he was thoroughly beat by the Cardinals. After the Dodgers fell to the Cards on Monday, one very bold and idiotic reporter asked Kershaw the worst question ever. Reporter asks #Dodgers Clayton Kershaw “How crushing was that when you saw the ball...

Breaking down Kershaw’s awful postseason record

Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is undoubtedly the best pitcher in baseball right now. But the 26-year-old lefty has a long history of coming up short in the postseason. On Tuesday night that penchant for failing in the playoffs reared its ugly head again, as he couldn’t save the Dodgers from elimination in Game 4 of the 2014 National League Division Series. The St...

It’s Clayton Kershaw on short rest, again

Here’s an easy question for you. You need to win the next two baseball games. All else being equal, would you rather start Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, or Clayton Kershaw and Dan Haren? Right, okay. Couldn’t be simpler. Greinke’s better than Haren is, so you opt for the former. And that’s what the Dodgers […]

Los Angeles Dodgers on the brink of elimination

Around the trade deadline, pretty much all of my stories included some variation of “the Los Angeles Dodgers should probably make a move for relief pitching.” Instead, they acquired Kevin Correia, Roberto Hernandez and Darwin Barney. I love Barney (both the purple dinosaur and the second baseman), but the other two ranged from awful to slightly better than mediocre in their time...

What happened to Kershaw and the Dodgers on Friday?

What the hell, man. What the hell? I’ve never seen anything like that. Neither have you, probably. This was to be a celebratory pot with Clayton Kershaw fist pumps and A.J. “four hits” Ellis homer GIFs, and instead… this: Source: FanGraphs I mean, what do you even say about that? For six innings, Kershaw was crusing. I mean, cruising. Even with everything that happened,...

Clayton Kershaw: ‘We were built to win the World Series’

The Los Angeles Dodgers clinched the National League West title Wednesday night after a 9-1 win over second-place San Francisco. Clayton Kershaw, the probable NL Cy Young Award winner and MVP candidate, tied a career high with his 21st victory.  He allowed one run and eight hits in eight innings, struck out 11 and walked none in his last start of the regular season. “We were...

Clayton Kershaw responds to Mo'Ne Davis' pitch-off challenge

If you haven’t yet heard the name Mo’ne Davis, she’s a 13-year-old pitcher for the Taney Dragons baseball team who just qualified for the Little League World Series. Davis has become a Little League sensation and her complete-game shutout performance for the Philadelphia-based ball club in the Mid-Atlantic Final made her a star.
