Buffa’s Bullets: Kershaw Shows Class Towards Cardinals

What are your feelings on bullet rounds, readers? What is a bullet round? Let me explain.Back in the day, before I spread my material across a few websites and built a following on Twitter, I wrote weekly bullet rounds to a small group on my email list. Every week, I would pummel a 2,000 word rant about sports to about 20 people and unclog the head. It was therapeutic for me and...

How Did Pedro Martinez Get Bombed?

Clayton Kershaw is coming off what was legitimately one of the best starting-pitcher seasons of all time. Though he would miss a few turns due to injury, that problem was quickly forgotten, as Kershaw still approached 200 innings and finished with both an ERA and an FIP that were half the league average. There was […]

Los Angeles Dodgers rumors: Cole Hamels edition

If the Los Angeles Dodgers didn’t already possess the most terrifying pitching rotation in baseball, they could be looking to secure the top spot by adding a third pitcher that would be an ace on any other MLB team. The #Phillies are doing intensive homework on the #Dodgers minor-leaguers these days in preparation of Cole Hamels' trade talks. — Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale...

Just like every year: Clayton Kershaw, Cy Young winner

Like there was ever any question. Of course Clayton Kershaw was going to win the NL Cy Young award, and despite some worry that someone would foolishly toss a vote to Adam Wainwright or Johnny Cueto, of course he was going to win it unanimously. Like with Hanley Ramirez receiving and then declining the qualifying offer, it’s fun to have situations where it’s so clear what...

Jack Nabors: the anti-Clayton Kershaw

Last season, when I came up with my first Kyle Davies and Dan Meyer Award winners for 2013, a comment accused me of focusing too much on the negative. It was a fair enough comment since the awards go to the worst players in a particular baseball season. There is just something that fascinates me about players that do not succeed in such a spectacular fashion. The world focuses...

MLB award predictions: Which players shined above the rest?

The 2014 MLB season is now in the books, and it’s time to take a look back at the regular-season stars that set the table for a great postseason. The breathtaking moments and clutch performances taking place from the end of September until the last out of the World Series can sometimes skew our judgement and cause us to forget about those that played at a level above the...

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...

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....

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...

Los Angeles Dodgers win the biggest series of the season

That series went exactly as planned right? The Los Angeles Dodgers went into San Francisco and took two of three games, extending their NL West lead to three games over the Giants. The Dodgers won starts by Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, and lost to Giants’ ace Madison Bumgarner. Nothing out of the ordinary here. Except that Friday and Saturday were prime examples of why baseball...
