However, it needs to be looked more than asking “What’s Wrong With Clayton Kershaw,” because it’s entirely possible that nothing’s wrong. Kershaw’s 31.1% strikeout rate is 0.8% worse than what he posted last year, and second only...

Los Angeles Dodgers still looking for real Clayton Kershaw

Due to the flat-out stupid weather of Colorado, this has been an odd week for the Los Angeles Dodgers. For heaven’s sake, baseball should not have to be played in the snow.
