Morning Briefing: L.A. luck; Sandy speaks

NEW YORK FIRST PITCH: The Mets take a day off in California on Thursday, then get to work against the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend. The Amazin’s get a reprieve of sorts, too. Clayton Kershaw, originally due to start Friday’s series opener against the Mets, instead faces the San Diego Padres on normal rest on Thursday. So the Mets draw Dan Haren in the series opener, followed now by Zack Greinke on Saturday and Kevin Correia on Sunday.

Still plenty to believe in for Dodgers

LOS ANGELES -- Sunday was Faith and Family Day at Dodger Stadium. After the game, a listless 7-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers leaving the Los Angeles Dodgers on the wrong side of a three-game sweep, fans filled a few sections of seats behind the home dugout for live music and the chance to hear Clayton Kershaw, A.J. Ellis, Scott Van Slyke, and Adrian Gonzalez speak about the importance of faith in their lives. Insofar as the Dodgers and the Church of Baseball are concerned, the timing felt appropriate.

Brewers beat Dodgers, Kershaw, 3-2

When it became evident that the Milwaukee Brewers would have to face both Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw on consecutive weekends, some wondered if they could survive that pitching-ace gantlet.

Game 125 Thread: Aug. 16 vs. Brewers, 6p

Clayton Kershaw (14-2, 1.78) vs. Yovani Gallardo (7-6, 3.44) It was one game, people. Just one game last night. We still bad. Sure, one of our aces could barely go five and looked like Spanky trying to take a sobriety test at 3 AM. Sure the bullpen again coughed it up like a TB-addled hobo. Sure we wasted more scoring chances than Stubbs did on prom night. Sure....wait, I was trying to be positive. [Insert positive comments here] Kershaw goes today. Keep calm.* Fuhgeddaboudit. I'll be at the Yard tonight wearing my deuce-deuce. Hit me up if you'll be there, too. * In honor of opening day...

Rapid Reaction: Braves 3, Dodgers 2

ATLANTA – The Dodgers lost a game, but they’re hoping they didn’t lose one of their best starting pitchers for an extended period. Hyun-Jin Ryu left Wednesday night’s 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves in the sixth inning with a strained right gluteus muscle. The extent of the injury was not immediately known, but the Dodgers have been heavily reliant on Ryu, Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke as they climbed to their perch in the NL West.

ATLANTA – Each of the past two years, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has told his team to embrace the high expectations created by ownership’s free-spending ways. His ace Clayton Kershaw threw his arms wide and embraced those expectations during a...

Hang with Kershaw for a Mere $2K

We got an email from Gavin Guidry at Jackson Spalding: Adam Wainwright recently started Big League Impact, an organization pairing MLB stars with fans, giving them the opportunity to play together in a fantasy football league while making a difference in their communities. All of the proceeds from BLI go to the charities of the player’s choice along with the Big League Impact Basic Needs Initiative. Currently, this year’s players include Clayton Kershaw, Cole Hamels, Tim Hudson, Freddie Freeman, Max Sherzer, Adam Wainwright, Neil Walker, Justin Masterson and Skip Shumaker. I am touching...

Kershaw: 'It's World Series or bust'

ATLANTA – As if having the highest payroll in baseball didn’t already state it, now the Los Angeles Dodgers' best player is on record declaring his team’s expectations. Appearing on ESPN’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” show Tuesday, pitcher Clayton Kershaw said it’s “World Series or bust” for the Dodgers this season. “I think it was almost like that last year, too,” Kershaw said. “Coming up short didn’t feel good, and now we have that experience of what it’s like to go deep and not win.

Another Washington Post Piece Praising Kershaw

Hey, this is fun! So here's another one, from the WP on June 29, 2014: "Rare Air", by Kent Babb (some of which was picked up by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, as well): KANSAS CITY, Mo. — He didn't say much during the no-hitter, and unless he's asked, Clayton Kershaw keeps quiet about the trips to Africa he takes during offseasons, too. “I'm not a big talker,” the Los Angeles Dodgers' soft-spoken ace said last week, the day before his latest dominant start. On June 18, Kershaw sat between innings mostly alone in the home dugout at Dodger Stadium, his teammates avoiding unnecessary...

Another Look At Clayton Kershaw's Amazing No-Hitter

The other day I got an envelope of clippings from a friend in Washington DC, which included a nice write-up by Barry Svrluga of the Washington Post, on Clayton Kershaw's no-hitter (June 22, 2014). Apparently, the Washington Post makes one pay for full access. It's a good article, so I'm going to test my typing skills and transcribe some of the article for our readers: In an odd way, the fact that Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers threw a no-hitter Wednesday night against Colorado isn't terribly surprising. Kershaw has won two of the last three National League Cy Young awards, has...
