Los Angeles, CA- Going into the 2010 season, who knew that Clayton Kershaw would have his breakout season in 2010? The unassuming, mild-mannered Texas kid is a solid condidate for the Cy Young Award with his 21-8 record and 3.09 ERA. Chad Billingsley figures to get a few votes along with Jon Broxton. Billingsley with his 18-12 record and 3.34 ERA rebounded nicely from an up and down 2009. His 234 Innings Pitched led the Dodgers. Jon Broxton was lights-out all season after mastering the change-up, and had 57 saves to go with his 1.97 ERA. Clayton Kershaw was the leader of a Dodgers staff which had 4 starters with 10 or more wins: Kershaw with 21, Billingsley with 18, Kuroda with 15 and Haeger with 12. Scott Elbert finished with 9 wins.
As a side note, James McDonald, Josh Lindblom, Hong-chih Kuo and Ronnald Belisario joined Jon Broxton as the only bullpen history with an ERA below 2.00.
… and then I woke up!
