Cy Kershaw, Best Pitcher In Baseball

kershaw_nlcs_game2

Like you had any doubt: for the second time in three years, Clayton Kershaw is your National League Cy Young award winner. It arguably should have been three years in a row. BOW BEFORE HIM.

Kershaw’s win gives the Dodgers their 11th award, with the other nine before him being Sandy Koufax (1963, 1965, 1966), Mike Marshall (1974), Fernando Valenzuela (1981), Orel Hershiser (1988), and Eric Gagne (2003).

Kershaw is, without any question or doubt, the single best pitcher in baseball. He’s on a Hall of Fame trajectory. Please pay him all of the dollars for all of the years now, thank you.

I wonder how much longer we have to wait until it's called the Clayton Kershaw Award.

I really wish I could convince myself Jose Bautista could play third base. Because he would be an awesome trade candidate for us, but I don't think he can. Oh well. Then again Miguel Cabrera plays third base now...

Randy Wolf is throwing for teams out there in LA.  Which NL West team is he most likely to sign with?  ALso, I find it amusing that his agent's last name is Wolfe.

Except for the person here who suggested Lee/Joc/Reed for Price AND Longoria.

Seems like something the Padres would do.

Dodgers would say no first, or at least I pray to Chtulu they would

I agree with a lot of things that Brian Kenny says and I find him completely insufferable.

I would rather take the chance on Guerrero.

@steelmohawk ummm Chtulu answers prayers with the deaths of your children's children. I'm not sure it's worth it.

He's not helping the sabermetric community. He causes people to dig into their opinions rather than listen to new ideas.

i love that social media is driving divides between smart people in baseball analytics rather than bringing them together

even that seems like a better idea, than the proposed trade
