It's Official! Kershaw to Start Sunday!

From "Kershaw to start Sunday for LA" by Ken Gurnick at

The Dodgers' youth movement hit another milestone Saturday when 20-year-old left-hander Clayton Kershaw was promoted to the Major Leagues from Double-A Jacksonville.

Kershaw is expected to make his debut in a Sunday start against the St. Louis Cardinals. To make room for Kershaw on the 40-man Major League roster, the Dodgers activated Esteban Loaiza from the disabled list and designated him for assignment. To make room for Kershaw on the 25-man active roster, reliever Yhency Brazoban was optioned back to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Okay everybody, just need to put the weight of the entire franchise on the kid's shoulders....

Aaugh! I can't help it! This is going to be awesome! Help us, Clayton Kershaw! You're our only hope!

I will be there to watch the young gun make his debut! I only hope the weather stays nice enough for Kershaw to make a decent start without interruption.
