Dodgers’ Kershaw lands endorsement deal with Subway

On Wednesday, Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw became the youngest pitcher to win three Cy Young awards and the following day was named NL MVP for the first time in his career.Off the field, Kershaw lives with his wife, Ellen. They have a charity, Kershaw’s Challenge. Although it wasn’t in the form of an award, Kershaw’s 2014 season led to another achievement. According...

Clayton Kershaw’s MVP Tiebreaker

Clearly I’m biased, but I would have voted for Clayton Kershaw to win MVP. Shocking, right? I won’t go through the entire exercise of creating a full mock ballot (though, without a ton of thought, I’d probably go Kershaw-Cutch-Lucroy-Rendon-Stanton for the top five), but the distance between Kershaw and Andrew McCutchen would be very narrow. McCutchen was only half a win...

Los Angeles Dodgers: Clayton Kershaw wins NL MVP

Apparently, the MVP is not a hitter’s award. Los Angeles Dodgers’ pitcher Clayton Kershaw hit .175 this year, with three RBIs, 24 strikeouts and a stolen base. However, for the first time since 1968, a pitcher has been named the National League’s most valuable player. There isn’t much that I haven’t said about Kershaw since April. His pitching stats are incredible. The...

Clayton Kershaw is the Gold Standard

If there was any doubt coming into the 2014 baseball season it has been put to rest: Clayton Kershaw is the new gold standard for major league pitchers. The Dodgers’ southpaw hurler picked up his third Cy Young award in four years with one of the most dominating and impressive seasons in recent memory, putting up dazzling statistics that would have surely been even more incredible...

Los Angeles Dodgers news: Clayton Kershaw wins NL Cy Young

This post has been in my “drafts” basically since June. In the least surprising news of the century, Los Angeles Dodgers’ pitcher Clayton Kershaw was awarded the National League Cy Young award on Wednesday, the third time the 26-year old has been honored as the best pitcher in the national league. I will use this picture of Kershaw every chance I get 2014 marks the third time...

Just like every year: Clayton Kershaw, Cy Young winner

Like there was ever any question. Of course Clayton Kershaw was going to win the NL Cy Young award, and despite some worry that someone would foolishly toss a vote to Adam Wainwright or Johnny Cueto, of course he was going to win it unanimously. Like with Hanley Ramirez receiving and then declining the qualifying offer, it’s fun to have situations where it’s so clear what’s...

Clayton Kershaw and the Others

I understand why the BBWAA announces finalists for awards before it announces the winners — they’re trying to build some suspense, some anticipation, and, okay, that’s fine, even if the finalists don’t tell us much we couldn’t predict. For example, we’ve long known the AL Cy Young was going to come down to Felix Hernandez […]

Jack Nabors: the anti-Clayton Kershaw

Last season, when I came up with my first Kyle Davies and Dan Meyer Award winners for 2013, a comment accused me of focusing too much on the negative. It was a fair enough comment since the awards go to the worst players in a particular baseball season. There is just something that fascinates me about players that do not succeed in such a spectacular fashion. The world focuses...

MLB award predictions: Which players shined above the rest?

The 2014 MLB season is now in the books, and it’s time to take a look back at the regular-season stars that set the table for a great postseason. The breathtaking moments and clutch performances taking place from the end of September until the last out of the World Series can sometimes skew our judgement and cause us to forget about those that played at a level above the...
