Clayton Kershaw Finally Reacts to Padres Lame Scoreboard Antics After Beating Dodgers

Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw put on a masterclass display of being the bigger man after finally reacting to the incredibly lame and unprofessional scoreboard display posted by the Padres following Friday night’s win. First, if you’re not caught up on what we’re talking about, after last night’s 5-2 win over the Dodgers, the Padre video board displayed a meme of a crying Clayton Kershaw.

You know, something little brother teams do. Here’s video of the jumbotron.

The Dodgers, Clayton Kershaw, and the media at Petco Park only become aware of the incident after leaving the ballpark. So there were no questions about it last night. But today we have Kershaw’s reaction.

Again, he took the high road.

“I don’t think I’m going to take the bait on this one. … You don’t like it, pitch better. I don’t think they do that if we win.”

So, he doesn’t really care. And he doesn’t need to. He’s a three-time NL Cy Young award winner, a former NL MVP, a nine-time All-Star and a World Series champion. Child’s play doesn’t really concern the future Hall of Famer.

The Dodgers look to even the series tonight with Dustin May on the mound. Blake Snell — a pitcher the Dodgers beat during their most recent World Series championship run in 2020; their seventh title in franchise history, by the way — goes for the Padres.
