Clayton Rickshaw

California Correspondent May 30, 2008 2

Clayton RickshawEarlier this week, DLamp over at pyleoflist.com wet his pants trying to come up with a nickname for Dodger’s rookie, Clayton Kershaw. Before we start putting pussy prospects on a pedastal, let’s first give them a chance to prove themselves. Kershaw just crapped the bed vs the Mets in NY. Torre pulled him after 3.2 innings as the Dodgers struggle to break their 4 game losing streak. Kershaw gave up 4 earned runs, 5 hits, 4 walks, 1 hr, with a 5.59 ERA in his 2nd start.

Sorry that I’m not ready to call this guy “The Predator” or “Shawshank Redemption” yet. I’m leaning towards Clayton Crapshaw or Clayton Rickshaw after his performance in NY today.

    Agreed that only way a pitcher on a crmumy team wins the Cy Young is with a standout season. And if Felix Hernandez doesnt win the AL Cy Young then the award obviously doesnt go to the best pitcher in the league, but the best pitcher on a winning team. Can you imagine the stats if the team scored more than 2 runs a game?As for Kershaw he won 13 games however on the following dates he pitched 6 innings or more giving up 2 runs or less and he didnt get the winApril 18th, April 24th, April 29th, May 25th, June 27th, Aug 1st, Aug 12th, Aug 27th, Sept 1st and Sept 7th. That’s 10 games where he pitched a quality game or even lights out and didnt get the run support or bullpen help to win. If he won half of those games his record would have been 18-10 and he would have finished third behind Halladay and Wainright.To not consider him in the top five is just Dodger hatred seems to be a lot of that going on makes unseating the midgets this year even more important, lets at least give people a real reason to hate us!
