Clayton Kershaw

The next Sandy Koufax?

Evander doesn’t get much news from The Coast: It rarely filters in to Right Off the Bat HQ. But I have been clued in to Dodgers phenom Clayton Kershaw. He has won twenty games in his first year: Doc Gooden-like. I also didn’t realize he has defeated Tim Lincecum four times this season. (Lincecum’s Giants have lost all five games the Cy Young Award-winner pitched against Kershaw.) The Dodgers organization is in tatters. But Joe Torre and Sandy Koufax think Kershaw is the real deal. That’s good enough for me.
