Kershaw Kerfuffle Overshadowing Kids?

Everybody is going nuts about Clayton Kershaw, who got promoted to big league camp today. And for good reason—if there's a pitch that cemented the hype, here it is.

I myself am trying not to drool over the prospect of a killer young left-handed phenom on the Dodgers. We have to remember he's not even 20 years old yet and there are too many cautionary examples of injury-prone former hotshots around the league. Clearly the Dodgers understand he must not be rushed.

But did you see that curve? I know, I know. Just enjoy the kids who are in the bigs now and savor the anticipation of more goodness to come.

The MLB Gamecast would explode describing that one.
