I watched Clayton Kershaw throw a 90 game score game yesterday - wow is he good!

Recommended Posts

I went to the Nats-Dodgers game yesterday and wow was Clayton Kershaw nasty! 8 IP, 0 R, 3 H, 0 BB, 14 K's for a game score of 90. His fastball was sitting at 94-95 and he cranked it up to 96 a few times. But was really impressed me was his breaking stuff. Throwing 74 mph curve balls that broke a mile that he could either throw for a strike or not, depending on what he wanted it to do, and an 88-89 mph offspeed pitch (couldn't really tell if it was a sinker, slider or straight change) that seemed to break straight down as it reached home plate. He is really impressive to watch up close.

I as there with my boys at the stadium. He's as impressive as it gets. Wait till you see Greinke today!

Personally, I prefer Kershaw even if Greinke is throwing Gibsonian numbers up.

I was thinking about Kershaw last night and whether or not he'd be a hall of famer if his arm happen to blow up tomorrow. The more I think about it the more I think he'd have to be. His career numbers wouldn't approach 300Ws, 3000Ks the usual 65+fWAR, but he has so thoroughly dominated the last 7 years that he'd have to be in. I think we're only a year or two from Trout being in the same boat.

Pushing 40 plus scorerless innings so far.

Between Kershaw and Grienke, the last two games they have pitched 16 innings, 6 hits, 0 runs, 1 walk and 25 K's!

Why can't they be playing and interleague series with the Yankees right now. Instead Tex get meatball Rodney!

With due respect to both of them, the Nats are missing Zimmerman, Rendon, Werth and Span. They don't have much of a lineup.

It's worked out so well for the Orioles, there's no regrets, but if I had five candid minutes with Andy MacPhail, for curiosity's sake it'd be interesting to know the Dodgers bid in the Bedard sweepstakes.

My memory is they were one of the other bidders, and in their org at that time, Kemp was the AJ type player, and Kershaw the Tillman type player.

I'd love to know too, but I don't believe Kershaw was in play. He was a guy that the OH wanted for obvious reasons. I'd imagine that MacPhail's response would be something like James McDonald, Andy LaRoche, and Kemp.

Also I recall people on the board "settling" for Jones instead of Triunfal, SS (sp)

Had to settle for a complete game 3 hit shutout, walking nobody and striking out 11 for a Game Score of 92. In his last three starts he has thrown 26 shutout innings, walking nobody and striking out 38. Now that's pitching! And he doesn't even have the longest scoreless streak on his own team.

Watch Kershaw melt down in the post season again.

Could happen, but I wouldn't bank on it just because he has had a handful of bad playoff games in the past. BTW, I'd argue that Mattingly mismanaged Kershaw in Game 1 of the NLDS last year. He was fine though 6 IP (2 R), but tired in the 7th and Mattingly inexplicably let him throw 29 pitches and allow six hits before removing him. In any event, that has no bearing on what happens next time.
