Opinion: Kershaw NL MVP Talks “Absurd”

Clayton Kershaw has been “The Man” for the Los Angeles Dodgers–posting a 19-3 record with an ERA of just 1.70 (at the time this article was written). He also has 219 strikeouts with just 28 walks. There’s no doubt Kershaw is the best pitcher in the game today and he proves it year in and year out. Justin Verlander had his day in the sun, but he’s had it rough in 2014....

Clayton Kershaw’s Season, Historically

Clayton Kershaw is having a fantastic season, and you didn’t need me and my numbers to tell you that. He’s going to win the Cy Young award, potentially unanimously. He has a real shot at the MVP award, perhaps only derailed by the electorate’s weird bias against pitchers. Yet, there is something that I am seeing frequently that is bugging me enough to write about. Take this...

Clayton Kershaw’s Effect on the Dodgers Bullpen

Ken Rosenthal has an NL MVP vote this year, and the other day, he wrote about his thought process in regards to pitchers winning the award. He’d prefer to vote for a position player, but isn’t entirely against pitchers-as-MVPs, and he noted that a dominant starter who works deep into games doesn’t just affect the […]

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...

Dodgers 4, Giants 2: Clayton Kershaw, Most Valuable Everything

On Friday night, the Giants whomped the Dodgers, 9-0. On Saturday night, the Dodgers decimated the Giants, 17-0. For what was expected to be a very competitive series between the only two non-train wreck teams in the NL West, this weekend had turned into a hilarious joke that had seen both games all but over from the very start, as Hyun-jin Ryu and Tim Hudson had each lasted just...

Dodgers @ Giant Sept. 14, 2014: Clayton Kershaw looks to clinch series

As Mike said in his recap, last night was fun. Today could be fun for a different reason: It’s Clayton Kershaw day! The Dodgers and Giants have split the first two games of this series — in decided fashion — and Kershaw is on the bump for the rubber game. Yusmeiro Petit goes for the Giants. Here is what ‘Frisco is looking at today. Clayton Kershaw owns the lowest career ERA...

Does Anyone Realize How Much Clayton Kershaw is Dominating?

Has Clayton Kershaw fallen victim to his own success? The Dodgers ace is having a historic season and while people are noticing, shouldn’t the man with a minuscule 1.67 ERA be glorified more so than he has? The 26-year-old is putting together the most dominant season the majors has seen in nearly 20 years but because he’s coming off his second Cy Young season, one in which he...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Turn down for what?

Los Angeles is the city of stars. From Kobe Bryant to Clayton Kershaw, Hollywood Blvd. to a night at the Griffith Observatory, stars can be seen on a nightly basis in LA. However, a lesser known utility infielder may be the MVP of the Los Angeles Dodgers so far this season. Nobody made a huge deal when the Dodgers signed Justin Turner, who still has arbitration years left and cannot...

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.
