That aint no hanging curve ball.

I know what you meant but just to be accurate AND...a pain in the ass.

That pitch is snapping like hell...hangers dont snap..they sit there, up, until a bat smacks the piss out of em.

Anyhow, that boy's got one big ballooning curveball..he does that, what he's doing in the video, all the time.

Reminds me of Mike Boddicker's curve back in..80's with Baltimore. He's a righty but.. similar track on the space ball and boddicker threw some different looks on his..changed speeds etc. Over all..Kershaw has one of the most wicked curves in baseball history.

I'd like to see a side view to see that it really is a strike. It might hit the catchers glove while in the right spot, but that doesn't mean that it crossed the plate in the box.

Best pitcher in the game today. The years of Koufax comparisons don't seem so outrageous these days. As a baseball fan, it's a treat to get to see him pitch.

And he can field the ball pretty well too! Today he was on the front end of a double play.

Suicide Squeeze - Not!

Hits well, too. We're lucky to have him.



It is what it is.

The header was meant to be hyperbolic, not journalistic ~ seems to have worked since his name is Clayton not Klayton. As an old timer it's hard for me to not think about how long this kid can keep that edge, not many do but it's a treat to see them while they have it.
