Jason Smith: “Tonight was the night that Clayton Kershaw had his legacy forever changed… ‘He never could get it done in the playoffs’ will now be the first line of Kershaw’s Wikipedia page. What’s the off-season going to look like now? He’s your third best pitcher and you owe a guy a lot of money who only throws 89.”
Jonas Knox: “Former Fox Sports Radio host Mike North used to call him ‘Clayton Manning’, but Manning ended up finishing with two Super Bowl rings. This was catastrophic and two pitches completely changed the narrative on this guy’s Hall of Fame career.” (Full Audio at Bottom of Page)
Listen to Jonas Knox and Jason Smith explain why Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Clayton Kershaw suddenly sees his Hall of Fame career at a daunting crossroads, as the 31-year-old was once again on the receiving end of a catastrophic postseason performance.
Kershaw, a three-time Cy Young winner who will be neck-and-neck with Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer for consideration as best pitcher of the 2010’s, now has a 4.43 career postseason ERA in 158.1 innings… Frighteningly larger than his 2.44 career ERA in the regular season.
Check out the audio below as Smith and Knox wonder if it’s time the Dodgers part ways with the Los Angeles icon who has never won a World Series ring.
