Looks like Kershaw would pitch on short rest

It appears quite likely that the Los Angeles Dodgers would bring Clayton Kershaw back on three days’ rest if their National League Division Series with the St. Louis Cardinals lasts four games. For one thing, there’s a precedent. Kershaw did just that with the Dodgers leading 2-1 over the Atlanta Braves last season, going six strong innings in their 4-3 win that sent them to...

Adam Wainwright’s Strength Is The Dodgers’ Strength

Adam Wainwright is a very, very good pitcher. In a world without Clayton Kershaw, he would be a perennial Cy Young candidate. This year, he’ll likely finish third behind Kershaw and Johnny Cueto, behind the strength of a 2.38 ERA (66 ERA-) and a 2.88 FIP (79 FIP-). Combined with his 227 innings, those numbers resulted in 4.5 fWAR and 6.9 RA9 WAR this season. His peripherals have...

Los Angeles Dodgers seeking revenge

Los Angeles Dodger fans haven’t forgotten how last season ended.

It really didn’t help that the Dodgers only managed to get two hits off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha. That game six was a nightmare for Dodger fans, and...
