Brian Wilson strikes out 2 in his debut, gives up one hit.

Dodgers win, Reds lose, 9.5 games up.

3 game winning streak.

Damn it! I totally forgot this game was that early and most of all I'm pissed that I missed Wilson's debut.

 

Any idea if the game will be replayed anywhere later?

 

Did you actually watch his inning WC or did you just catch the stats & stuff? If you saw it, how did he look to you besides the stats? How did his fastball or other pitches look?

 

I heard he got offered like $1 million to shave his beard by some company. Haven't followed up on it if he'll do it or not.

For his debut, Wilson looked okay.

His fastball topped out at 94, threw his cutter and slider. He left a couple over the plate, both were hit hard, but one was an out and the other was a hit.

Once he can spot his cutter, he'll be back to form but for the most part he looked solid. Without his power fastball, he needs to command his pitches and hit his spots.

Just found a video actually sweet, & yeah I agree. He looked alright. Not overly impressive, but it's early and I still believe he can hopefully be better than League, lol. Got a lot more valuable experience too that's for sure and he may be smarter. I loved the first strikeout especially though on the first batter he faced in Stanton. That was nice.

What's funny is that Kershaw had one of his worst games of the season. His command was off for most of the game and didn't look like his normal self. 6, 7, and 8 he settled down though.

Looks like the dodgers break the long drought this year. Can't say I'm rooting for you but good luck. Real fans have suffered for decades. Good to see you get over the hump. If this for some reason isn't the year you guys are in great hands (no need to stress a WS is coming). That was depressing to write as an Angel fan.

The best part about Kershaw is he is only 25 years old so we get a few more seasons of watching this guy at a high level.

He deserves a $200 million extension this offseason.

only a few?

pitchers can pitch well into their mid 30's and even latter...

 

Kershaw already is a fixture in the Cy young, MVP talk, and best pitcher talk, and he should be for the next decade. its not like the NBA or the NFL where players fall off a cliff at age 30 or so....

 

I think Kershaw is still getting BETTER!!!

Lol. No offense WC, but I have to agree with TKain here. Never really would've taken a few for meaning 5-10 years.
