Is Clayton Kershaw the Best Pitcher in Baseball?
Clayton Kershaw threw a complete game shutout, scattered 4 hits, struck out 7, and didn’t walk a batter. Oh, by the way, he hit a go ahead home run in the 8th to break open the scoring for the Dodgers against the defending World Series Champions.
Kershaw was efficient, throwing only 94 pitches, and dominating all at the same time. He throws a low to mid 90’s fastball that, when paired with his nearly unhittable change up, is enough to overpower hitters. Kershaw is essentially the pitcher that you create on video games with 4 pitches that can be thrown at anytime to any hitter.
Magic Johnson and company had better be shoveling cash into the back of the dump truck that they are going to have to pull up to Kershaw’s front door.
