At this rate he'll finish with over twenty Topps Now cards this year.
Clayton Kershaw has just been awarded his third 2016 Topps Now card - joining Trevor Story, Bryce Harper and David Ortiz as the only players with three or more cards (Story and Ortiz have four cards in this years set and Harper has six). Go here to order or check it out.
Kershaw continues his march through the record books. Last night he recorded his sixth straight double digit strike out and one walk or less game streak by stifling the hapless Angels. Via Alden Gonzalez at MLB.com:
"All his pitches move late," Calhoun said. "That's the biggest thing."Clayton Kershaw is on his way to having one of the more dominating seasons the game has ever seen. He is currently striking out 22 batters for ever walk (an unheard of percentage) and leading the league in complete games, shut outs, strike outs, WAR, pitching WAR, FIP and WHIP. His ERA is a minuscule 1.67 in 70 innings pitched. It's hard to believe, but after five straight fantastic CY Young worthy seasons he just might be getting better.
"You come out aggressive, ready to hit," Giavotella added, "but sometimes those strikes are in different spots than they appear to be."
