Dodgers-Diamondbacks Preview

Clayton Kershaw's worst performance of the season came at Chase Field three months ago, but he's been the best pitcher in baseball since. Kershaw will try to find some rare success in the desert by continuing his dominance Wednesday night, when the NL West-leading Los Angeles Dodgers attempt to sweep their two-game set from the Arizona Diamondbacks. Kershaw (15-3, 1.82 ERA...

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...

How Clayton Kershaw compares to the greatest pitchers in history

Unless you don't know what baseball is or what its stats mean, you're aware that Clayton Kershaw is having an incredible season. That shouldn't be news to baseball fans, either; should Kershaw maintain his league-leading ERA, it would be the fourth year in a row he's claimed that title, and unless something changes radically this should be the third time in four years...

Tracking Yasiel Puig’s Power Outage

Yasiel Puig is a candidate to win the National League’s MVP award. His chances have fallen lately, due to a recent slump and a recent hot streak (and, you know, narrative) by Giancarlo Stanton. Clayton Kershaw is in the mix, too. It’s too early to know who will win the award, but what we do know is that Puig is very, very good. Among LA Dodgers with at least 900 plate appearances...

Two-Startapalooza, Week 22: Dog Days

This is happening on the other side of my laptop as I sit here writing the Two-Startapalooza... Yes, that is a dog dry-humping Boo the star Pomeranian in stuffed animal form. He does it all the time, but for some reason it seemed profound to me and strangely relevant to this week’s batch of pitchers. [Jay's Note: Uhhhh. Okay?] Perhaps my dog represents the fantasy gods,...

Dodgers beat Padres 2-1 behind Kershaw's 10 Ks

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The first-place Dodgers have staged plenty of comebacks this season. Just not after seven innings. They snapped an 0-for-46 skid with two runs in the eighth and Clayton Kershaw outdueled Tyson Ross for a 2-1 victory over the San Diego Padres on Thursday night. "We need wins no matter what," said Kershaw, whose team is 3 1/2 games ahead of San Francisco...

Dodgers 2, Padres 1: Clayton Kershaw great, Justin Turner also good

It looked like it was going to be one of those nights for Clayton Kershaw. Then, it looked like it was going to be one of those nights for the Dodgers. Then, it was one of THOSE nights. The Dodgers, on the strength of a Justin Turner 2-run home run in the bottom of the eighth and a gem by Kershaw, defeated the Padres 2-1 on Thursday night. Kershaw was lights-out, as he normally is...

Padres @ Dodgers Aug. 21, 2014: Kinda need this win, fellas

Further Appreciation of Clayton Kershaw’s Slider

Yes, I’m writing another post about Clayton Kershaw. He’s doing interesting, sometimes historic things this season. He’s a pitcher, so we shouldn’t take it for granted. There’s no clearer demonstration of this than the current rotation. Posts about Kershaw are fun to write and presumably fun to read. I’ll start with two GIFs. One will probably look pretty familiar, and...

Dodgers Ace Clayton Kershaw Explains Why Charity Work Is So Fulfilling To Him

Clayton Kershaw's wife, Ellen, had a chance to visit Africa as a college student and told him about the poverty she encountered there. The couple went to Africa shortly after they got married in 2010, and the trip made a serious impact on the Dodgers ace."I didn't really understand it until I went over there myself," Kershaw said.The Kershaws decided they wanted...

Clayton Kershaw Should Win The NL MVP

Ever since Andrew McCutchen went on the DL, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the NL MVP race. With Mike Trout bound to win it in the AL, the National League version is still up for grabs. Injuries to McCutchen and Paul Goldschmidt have boosted names like Jonathan Lucroy and Giancarlo Stanton into the mix. Though all these players have put together good years, there is, in...

Brewers beat Dodgers, end Kershaw winning streak

The Milwaukee Brewers have slain the dragon, at least until October that is. Facing the most indomitable starting pitcher in the game today, Los Angeles’ Clayton Kershaw, the Brewers came away with perhaps their biggest win of the season Saturday night in a potential playoff preview with the Dodgers.

King Felix: Seattle's Hope for the Wild Card

Well, he's done it a​gain. If Clayton Kershaw is the best p​itcher in the game today, which he is, then Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners ranks second. After that pair, it's not even close. Right now, the Seattle Mariners need him to keep doing what he's been doing on the mound. The thing is, they don't know how much longer that will be possible...

Yovani Gallardo, two home runs help Brewers beat Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw

Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke said Clayton Kershaw pitched better Saturday night than he had six days earlier in beating the Brewers for his 11th consecutive victory.

MLB Game Picks - Sunday: August 17, 2014

To finish a day of picking at 8-6 (the Rockies and Reds were postponed) when both Clayton Kershaw and Felix Hernandez lose is pretty fortunate. You counts on those two pitchers every time they take the mound. They had only lost five games between them all season. Kershaw was the Game of the Day pick, which didn't work out, but otherwise, I feel pretty fortunate.Two other...

Clayton Kershaw loses his winning streak

Clayton Kershaw has been nothing short of amazing this season. So, if he was ever going to lose a game again, it had to be big. Kershaw came off the field after striking out 11 batters and not walking anyone in nine innings on Saturday night, and he received a standing ovation at Dodger Stadium. He and the Dodgers were then on their way to a 3-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers....

Brewers 3, Dodgers 2: Kershaw good, but not good enough

Well, at least the bullpen didn’t get used. Clayton Kershaw was really good tonight, except the home runs allowed, and the offense couldn’t muster anything against the Brewers. The Dodgers lost 3-2. Kershaw threw his sixth complete game of the season in a 97-pitch effort. He allowed five hits, three runs (all earned), no walks and 11 strikeouts. Yet, a 2-run home run to Ryan...

Is Clayton Kershaw MVP Worthy?

You must ask yourself if a person who only comes to work every 5th day should qualify for employee of the year. Does that person deserve such an honor if they can only make a difference in that one day of work compared to someone who grinds day in and day out? It is a tough question to answer especially when that person comes in that one day they work and their talents show that...
