    I don't think anyone could look down on Kershaw achieving when he does. The dude seems like a truly decent human being, and he takes the game so goddamn seriously. I can't wait to see where we're at by the next Dodgers/Giants series.

    YEAH, Buddy!!

    Edit:

    2 Cy Young Awards, 2 World Series Rings and 2 No-Hitters...I wonder, is there any other pitcher, historic or contemporary, that can say the same?

    No-hitters against the Padres should have an asterisk next to them.

    ahh I hadn't seen your edit, apologies MN. He is indeed right albeit Koufax did all of that before retiring at 30.


    Koufax was the Chuck Yeager of pitchers.

    MLB network reporting A's trade for Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija....give up top prospects Addison Russell and Billy McKinney and pitcher Dan Straily.

    it was inevitable, but I am sad to see Samardzija go. not sure what the Cubs are gonna do with all these shortstop prospects, Castro included. don't look now but they've won four straight and are only eight games under .500

    I'm happy about the trade for the Cubs. They're stacked at SS with Castro, Baez, and now Russell. A tad confusing that a back-end rotation piece was the only pitching included, but they should be able to take in a nice haul when they trade either Castro or Baez.

    Other than Matheny being the manager, I would assume Kershaw not pitching in April has something to do with it.

    Let's also not forget the weird choices of Pat Neshek and Josh Harrison to the NL All Star reserves.

    Neshek plays for Matheny also, and is a setup man. He does have a 0.70 ERA, so the choice isn't that bad, but 0% chance Matheny selects a middle reliever if it's not someone on his team.

    Harrison is hitting .297 with 5 HR and 9 steals in 249 AB. Decent numbers, and the guy has been very clutch for the Pirates since joining the starting lineup, but he's still no All Star.

    Stantons projected 510ft homerun tonight was one of the most impressive shots ive ever seen. Damn, did not think Id ever see a shot that high and far at Target Field. Not a big fan of the 7 outs rule from this year, it didnt give enough outs for the hitters to get in to a good groove. Im sure all you Puig fans would agree.

    Céspedes won with authority and did the Bay proud.

    7 outs definitely messed with a lot of the participants' minds and made for a nearly sub-par derby.

    Justin Morneau may not have fared all that well in the Derby, but he was the only participant to literally hit a home run ball out of the park.

    Dee Gordon made more impact than Puig. Hell even Dee might have gotten one in the derby!

    The World Cup distracted me... The Angels are living up to their potential? And Richards is in the rotation? Cool. Now to build up that pen and hope Trout doesn't lose steam.

    Billy Beane going all in...Cespedes for Lester and Gomes...and then sends Milone (who they demoted for Hammel, who's been awful) to Minny for Fuld.

    Looks like Beane finally realized his formula doesn't get you past the divisional rounds... He's probably getting pressure from ownership, great move.

    really going to miss Lester. Couldn't ask for a more professional, stand-up guy to be the ace of a staff (at least from a fan's perspective). I hope the A's go all the way.

    And getting Cespedes, one of my absolute favorite players in the game, makes losing Lester sting just a little bit less.

    Yeah, this is a move that will help the As avoid the play-in game and help them actually get past Detroit in a playoff series. Cool to see them go all-in. Good value for the Sox, great trade all around for both teams.

    As a side note, I am happy to see Jonny Gomes -- a truly irritating player to watch -- leave the Red Sox. Now that he's not going to be there, grinding his fucking batting helmet into his scalp between each pitch, it should shave off a good ten minutes of each game this weekend.
