MVP of Yesterday (April 4, 2016): Clayton Kershaw

Uh oh, Kershaw has learned how to throw a change-up. This is very bad for opposing hitters but very good for him and his odds at getting the MVP of Yesterday, like he did… yesterday, when he allowed only one hit and struck out nine as the Dodgers ran amuck on the Padres.

Standings:

Francisco Liriano: 1

Clayton Kershaw: 1

MVP of Yesterday (September 24, 2014): Clayton Kershaw… yet again

Clayton Kershaw was actually tied with Mark Buerhle for WAR yesterday, pitching-wise, but there is also the small matter that KERSHAW TRIPLED IN A RUN. I repeat, a pitcher TRIPLED IN A RUN. He also made a cool behind-the-back catch and laid down a sweet sac bunt, too.

So, yes, yet again, Clayton Kershaw is the MVP of Yesterday. He’s almost certainly going to win it for the season.

MVP of Yesterday (August 22, 2013): Clayon Kershaw

MVP of Yesterday (Aug. 17, 2013): Clayton Kershaw

The Dodgers are 42-8 for the last 50 games, something that hasn’t happened for ANY team since the 1942 Cardinals and only the third overall in the modern era (the 1941 Yankees also did it). And part of the reason they have done so is because of their pitching, such as that of Cy Young-award frontrunner Clayton Kershaw, who’s 8 shutout innings yesterday not only made him the MVP of Yesterday, but put him at a ludicrous 1.80 ERA.

Standings under jump:
