I was going off the same calculations as he was, but didn't spell it out. I'll do so now.<br /><br />"31 innings, at about 7+ innings a game, that would mean he would max out at four games. 20 games left, with him missing his Friday start, that leaves around three games left for him to pitch in, considering the extra pitcher available. So if the Dodgers use a strict pitch/inning count, he should be good for the playoffs." (MLASF)<br /><br />Right, As I said "so 3 games or so over the next 4 weeks, and another 2 games in the playoffs." TWO games in the playoffs. Let's say once each in the NLDS and NLCS - and hope we don't have to go more than 5 games in the NLCS, where we'd want to use Kershaw a second time.<br /><br />OK. Now suppose we get to the World Series. What happens now? Don't use Kershaw, because of the 190-inning count?<br /><br />I doubt that. I bet we'd use him twice if need be. On top of perhaps a second game in the NLCS, that would be an extra 3x7 = 21 innings. Say 20 innings. 210 innings in all, to try to win the WS. That might end up hurting Kershaw next year, maybe for his career. But I suspect Torre would do it, going all out to win.<br /><br />What do you think?berkowit28http://www.blogger.com/profile/08194317697552106140noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-36360371.post-15822387423579603032009-09-07T23:46:38.726-07:002009-09-07T23:46:38.726-07:00What is this math you speak of?
