    Look up efficient in the baseball dictionary and you'll see Kershaw's performance last night. So gratifying on many levels.

    Nice to see JT putting it together again, too.

    Question- since I ain't watching anyway - does Kersh still throw that wicked 12-6 curve anymore?

    I'm not an expert on pitch types, but it seems to me that while he does still throw the curve effectively, he relies more on his slider as his out pitch.

    Thanks, bros.

    I recall his no-no ... that curve broke some hitters backs when he dropped it on them. Just witchcraft stuff.

    Updates from everyone's favorite reporter

    @kirsten_watson
    A couple #Dodgers updates: Dave Roberts shared that the hope is for Cody Bellinger to return to the team on Saturday, Zach McKinstry could be back on Saturday or Sunday. Tomorrow will be a bullpen day. The starter will be decided depending on how tonight plays out.

    This gives me great confidence that Bauer will perform well in the postseason.

    Sheldon Neuse wiffing on a 3-2 fastball down the middle sums him up perfectly

    That last commercial w the Betts jersey was much better
    She seemed as natural and human as I've seen her so far
    She's clearly trying to get better

    I hope she does. If she's goona be the gal, then gotta root for her. It's the DSP way....
    That said, I'm really disappointed in Bett$ and Smith..especially almost billionaire Bett$. That too, is the Dodger way.
