  1. sad to say but kershaw situation has been a red flag for at least the last three years…..he should have been phased out…..his usefullness has declined to the point of being a liability and preventing other pitchers from becoming starters…..he should be red-lined until he can pass a physical and be evaluated…Dodgers need to promote new players for the fan base and not see a past pitcher fall on his face…….

    1. It’s time to say goodbye and give up on the pipe dream that this guy will ever be a World Series warrior. There’s too many guys waiting in the wings and not enough spots.
