Post-Game 158 Thread: Kershaw Locks Up Cy

DODGERS 6, PADRES 2

All Clayton Kershaw did today was pitch 7 1/3 innings, allowing two earned runs on four hits and six strikeouts. He only finishes the regular season tied with Ian Kennedy in the National League for wins (21), first in ERA (2.28), and first in strikeouts (248). Congratulations, Clayton, on your first Cy Young Award.

Matt Kemp's bid for his own Triple Crown took a slight hit today — he went 1 for 5, lowering his average to .324 and putting him nine percentage points behind Ryan Braun. Three more games to make history, Matty!

Right on, Clayton!

and a big middle finger to sportswriters who make it seem like Matty needs to win the triple crown if he wants any chance of winning the MVP

When are the old, stupid, closed-minded sports writers going to die off and make way for newer, presumably more nuanced thinking ones? I keep waiting.

And when is Dylan Hernandez going to compose a Tweet that is actually related to the game he is supposed to be covering?

Good one going on in NY. 4-4 Yankmes v RSox going into the tenth.

Old friend Cory Wade pitches a scoreless 10th for the Yankees.

Aaron Laffey now pitching for Yankmes in the 13th. The ESPn gamecast widget shows a picture of him wearing a Mariners cap.

Loki's dad is pitching?

Dusty Baker said...

This Colts offense is just woeful.

Is this the right thread to say that in?

TJ Simers has got to be the biggest douche ever.
