Today was what I look forward to every 5 days or so, a Clayton Kershaw start. With today’s 5-1 gem against the Brewers, Kershaw now has a 15-5 record. The possibility of a 20 win season for the young left-hander is reachable. By my calculations, Kershaw will have 7, possibly 8 starts left, depending on whether Mattingly makes adjustments to give him additional starts when days off come into play.

|Steve Martin (aka Orin Scirvello from Little Shop of Horrors) is not my dentist...just wanted to make sure that was understood|
While sitting in my dentists chair today, the conversation got to baseball and eventually the Giants-Dodgers, this blog, etc. My Giants fan dentist Steve, by the way, is a great guy and conversationalists extraordinaire. I really enjoy my visits with him every six months. The conversations get quite engaging while he picks away at my teeth. I find it frustrating that I can’t always get a word in other than nods and, “Yaahs” and “Uh-huhs.” He said to me that he and his father cracked open a beer in celebration when it was announced that McCourt declared bankruptcy. My response to him once his hands were free from my mouth and I was given a chance to rinse was, “you don’t know how many of us responded in celebration when bankruptcy was announced and we felt that the end of this crisis may almost be over.”
