With the MLB entering the playoffs, there is a huge question on who will get the NL Cy-Young Award (given to the best pitcher in the league). Well, actually there is no question, in fact, the decision on who is going to get the Cy-Young award has basically been decided. His name is Clayton Kershaw and he is currently the most dominant pitcher in the league. With a career ERA of 2.48, WHIP of 1.06, and 1,425 strikeouts, Kershaw has proven time and time again that he is one of the best.
Although, his career stats are impressive, let’s look at what he has done this year and why he deserves to be the Cy-Young winner. So far, in his 2014 season Kershaw has 19 wins and 3 losses, only 35 earned runs and 219 strikeouts. But, the most impressive statistic of his 2014 season is the 1.70 ERA and 0.83 WHIP he has earned by hitting his spots and effectively changing speeds.
So yes, the baseball season is coming to an end and usually there is a huge debate on who deserves what award, but in this case the decision is pretty clear. The 6-3, 225 pound, left-handed pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, has huge rapporteur of pitches, can hit his spots, and out thinks his competition. In a game where dominance is rare, Clayton Kershaw has showed his ability to be the best, and for this he Fits the Mark!
