You might ask “Are you saying that Clayton Kershaw will win 30 games?”
Yes! Yes, I am!
There was a Sandy Koufax sighting at Camelback Ranch today, and he even talked to the reporters for a few minutes. There are a few quotes you can read from the beat writers, but one in particular about Clayton Kershaw struck me.
Dylan Hernandez of The LA Times reported that when asked about comparison between him and Clayton Kershaw, Sandy Koufax said this:
“If he’s as good as I think he’s going to be, I’m honored.”
That is Classic Koufax who is arguably one of the best pitchers of all time, and he says that he’s honored to be compare to Kershaw?
KNOW THIS: Sandy Koufax is not given to hyperbole!
We all know that Kershaw is special. We know that he is one of the best pitchers in baseball. After the Cy Young last year what does he do for an encore?
30! That’s the ticket!
