    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Has anyone noticed that these Kings-Dodgers comparisons never actually pan out?

    I think when considering Kershaw for Halladay, we do get a pretty big boost this year. But I just can't help but think - how high is Kershaw's ceiling? Halladay, or possibly higher? Mike Scoscia's Tragic Illness (Mike Scioscia's Tragic Illness | a Los Angeles Dodgers blog) wrote up a pretty good rundown of his season so far:

    "Clayton Kershaw = B+/A-
    Sandy Kershaw.jpg(7-5, 3.16 ERA, 1.27 WHIP)

    So, I'm struggling to decide what to give him, and this grade is pretty much where I'm at. Either way, what else can you say about the kid? If he were putting up merely league average numbers at this stage, I think we'd be alright with it, but he's not just doing that. After struggling out of the gate, Kershaw has been simply great, going from a 7.29 ERA in April, down to a 2.57 ERA in May, 2.36 in June, and through the first three starts starts of July, 0.53. While the 0.53 July ERA is definitely a small sample size, it has helped illustrate his continuous growth. What's also surprising is that he actually has the best VORP amongst Dodgers pitchers, edging out Chad Billingsley 26.7 to 26.1 and also puts him 12th amongst all NL pitchers. Now Kershaw hasn't necessarily perfect, either; while his 8.9 K/9 ratio is quite good, he does lead the league in walks and still carries some control issues which boosts his pitch count and therefore limits his innings. However, at merely 21 years of age, he has shown to be not just someone who can just simply fit in the big leagues, but someone who can learn to adjust and also can carry a great deal of success (133 ERA+!), as well, and certainly someone who will play a huge role in the second half.

    Well done, Clayton!"

    Don't remember specifics, but I've seen board members do it multiple times over the past 5 years during stretches when the Dodgers have been successful.

    Safe to say, the Kings have not matched that success.

    Glad to see Ethier, Furcal, and Torre pick up where they left off.

    The only one I remember is "Kelly Hrudey is our Orel Hershiser." I remember how slow LGK was back then connecting at 300 baud.
