    I remember him talking about not wanting to change until he knew it wasn't gonna work, gotta think he is too much of a perfectionist to be ok with being slightly above average.

    Someone get Maddux on the phone to show Kershaw how to pitch with low velocity.

    Or hell, have him watch Kyle Hendricks.

    Everyone realize Maddux’s 87 is like throwing 92 nowadays right?

    Isn't Kershaw 3-0 ?
    I think with Kershaw, on here anyway, 3-0 is like 0-6.
    Reality: 3-0..
    in DSP hateworld = 0-6.
    So, DSP >>>>>>>>> IRL.
    Pactum factum.

    He still has a good K:BB ratio and doesn't allow many base runners.
    It's his diminished stuff and predictability that allows guys to tee off a couple times a game.
    Same with Kenley.
    The HRs kill.

    Kershaw is still a good pitcher, but a lot of the critique he gets has to due with his past dominance.

    The expectations will always be a little different with him due to the standard he set and even though his decline was inevitable like with any player, it's still sad to watch.

    I remember when I used to get on you for being so negative and now you are the voice of reason.
    I don't think you have changed all that much.
    Just that a bunch of others got way more critical of our players.
    Kershaw is a loser but he's our loser.
    And that support might finally give him the win we deserve.

    Well, whippersnapper, one of the very few things that comes with old age that's a positive, is perspective.
    Far more realistic than it was in younger times.

    Kikè has been colder than Antarctica recently. So much for the breakout season thus far. Still a good player.

    Dude is calling for retaliation for no reason. Pipe down old man. JT is a pin cushion because he stands literally over the plate.
