Last year, I wasn't high on this Clayton Kershaw, but I knew in 2009 he would develop into a stud.
Wednesday night against the Giants, he broke out. He struck-out 13 batters and only made one mistake against Bengie Molina, who took him out.
Wednesday, everything was working for him. While I watched him pitch the latter half of his outing, he had tremendous command of his fastball and had an absolutely devastating curve ball that he could throw for a strike if he needed too. He kept the batters off balance all night.
If this is the Kershaw we get the rest of the year, you are looking at a big season. He will likely have some droughts and awful starts, but I believed in him enough to draft him in a few leagues, so I have no doubt he will have a huge season.
Hopefully the Dodgers and Broxton will hold the lead and give Kershaw the big win. It's 2-1 going into the eighth.
