Kershaw had another dominating performance last night. After giving up consecutive hits to start the game, Kershaw allowed just one more hit in 7 innings tallying 11 strikeouts on the night. Left the game with the 4-0 lead and even though relief was terrible the Dodgers were able to hang onto the 4-3 win....

Welp, Dodger season is in the sh!tter but Kershaw goes against the Hated Ones and Tim Linsecum tonight looking for his 20th win.

Cy Young baby.

He's the leading candidate IMO. Ahead of Lee & Halladay.

Definitely in first now.

Halladay outdueled by Lohse.

Lee outdueled by Ross Detwiler(lol)

and Kershaw defeats Lincecum and ends the Giants 8 game win streak last night allowing only 1 run and gets his 20th win.

I'm afraid the east coast bias is going to hand the award to Halladay, but as much as I like the guy, Kershaw is OBVIOUSLY the better pitcher this year.

NEW YORK (AP)—After struggling for much of the season, the [URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/lad/"][COLOR=#046bca]Los Angeles Dodgers[/COLOR][/URL] are cruising when it comes to postseason honors.
[URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/8180/"][COLOR=#046bca]Clayton Kershaw[/COLOR][/URL][URL="http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/8180/news"](notes)[/URL] won his first NL Cy Young Award on Thursday, adding to the Gold Glove he won as the Dodgers collected three fielding awards in one year for the first time.
“I always dreamed about playing in the big leagues. I never dreamed about doing anything special in the big leagues. I don’t think any kid ever does,”Kershaw said. “The people I’m now associated with, just by having this award, is something that I never thought would ever happen.”
Kershaw received 27 of 32 first-place votes and 207 points in voting by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.

Not sure I'd put him above Verlander.

Although the AL doesn't play real baseball, so I guess you're right in a different way.

Matt Kemp should be a lock for the MVP as well...

Kershaw was named the most valuable player of the National League, becoming the first pitcher to win the award since Bob Gibson in 1968.

Kershaw became only the fourth NL pitcher to win both the MVP and Cy Young Award in the same season. The two other than Kershaw and Gibson to do it were both Dodgers: Sandy Koufax (1963) and Don Newcombe (1956). 

Kershaw won his third Cy Young Award the previous day to equal Koufax's total.

 

 

22 continues to rack up awards in his young career.

 

Good guy too.
