As the LA Dodgers won the World Series, it helped solidify Clayton Kershaw’s amazing career.
Since coming to the majors, Clayton Kershaw of the LA Dodgers has been one of the best pitchers in baseball.
It is very rare for a pitcher with the capabilities of Kershaw to come around, as he is one of the best pitchers that we have seen in the last two decades. Kershaw has been one of the best pitchers in the league year in and year out, and when he retires, he will be in Cooperstown.
In the regular season, Kershaw has a career ERA of 2.43 and 175 victories. During the regular season, Kershaw has always been fantastic, as he only had an ERA over 3.00 once in the last decade. That season came last year, and Kershaw had a 3.03 ERA.
During the regular season, Kershaw has earned three Cy Young awards and has been an eight-time All-Star. Also, Kershaw has won an MVP award, which is very hard to do as a starting pitcher.
While Kershaw’s regular season stats are fantastic, the one knock on his great career has been his performance in the postseason. In the playoffs over the course of his career, Kershaw has 4.66 ERA and a record of 13-12. For someone who has accomplished as much as Kershaw, his play in the postseason for one reason or another has been significantly worse than his performance in the regular season.
The Dodgers have been the favorites a few years in the playoffs and have come up short. Part of the reason for that has been the play of Kershaw. However, this season was much different.
In the playoffs this season, Kershaw totaled a 2.93 ERA and a 4-1 record. The performance of Kershaw certainly helped the Dodgers win the World Series. Now, Kershaw has finally got his World Series ring to add to his long list of accolades.
