Just read it. Joe Pos is right, but... Kershaw did have it last night. He cruised through the sixth on nine pitches. I would have sent him out to start the seventh. If he mows them down -- great, you've saved your bullpen. (The Dodgers had one day off before this series, the Rays two: big difference.) If any batter gets on, you go to your pen with one runner on and an 8-1 lead.

Happy to but need a better link.

Alex - you need to read Joe Pos on Kershaw ... Posnanski: How can we make sense of Clayton Kershaw’s postseason woes? (link fixed, oops, sorry 'bout that)

I would have had him pitch one more inning, he was that efficient.

After wins in his first two starts in the tournament, Kershaw's postseason record drops back below .500. His ERA bumps to 4.31.

Dodgers are on the brink of joining the 2001 Mariners.

I just watched the condensed game. Kerhshaw's expression in the eighth, evidently with Dave Roberts on the dugout steps after Kershaw has walked a batter, is absolutely priceless.

He doesn't come out for the ninth. The condensed game doesn't show how he reacted to that, but even if he groaned I'm sure he understood. There's such a long way to go.

Clayton Kershaw (P) LA - Jul. 13

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=743106

Kershaw tossed five innings in an intrasquad game Sunday, allowing two runs on eight hits and no walks while striking out eight. He unofficially threw 91 pitches, per Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: It wasn't the most efficient performance for the veteran southpaw, but Kershaw nonetheless held his own in the intrasquad matchup. Most importantly, the 91-pitch effort suggests that Kershaw is ready to take on a near-normal workload when he faces San Francisco on Opening Day.

In 2009, 72 percent of his pitches were fastballs. They averaged 93.9

Last year: 44 percent, averaging 90.4.

Clayton Kershaw (P) LA - Feb. 25

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=737989

Kershaw spent time at the Driveline Baseball academy in the offseason, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: While Kershaw enjoyed another All-Star season in 2019, he posted a 3.03 ERA -- his highest since his rookie campaign. Kershaw still holds a place among baseball's top pitchers, yet the Dodgers -- and fantasy managers -- should be optimistic about the knowledge he gathered at Driveline considering the program's esteemed reputation.
