Who is the Dodgers ace 5 years from now?

I think Kershaw has the most potential, but he is also the furthest away. I see Billingsley and Elbert as more of #2 guys with the upside to be borderline #1, while i can see Kershw developing into an ace...

Kershaw is the future ace, but not five years from now. Five years from now he is a second year player. 7 years from now Kershaw is the ace.

Billingsley has "ace" potential. i still think its funny how some soured on him with what he did last year. the way he finished out last year was a great indicator of his true potential as well.

Kershaw i think "could" which is a very very miniscule "could" top out better but for him to even reach what Billingsley has thru the minors is a long and hard stretch. anything could happen just ask Mr. Greg Miller

Billingsley has every bit of ace potential as Cain, Verlander, Liriano
