That kinda sucks though, if he throws relief for awhile, they'll probably have to stretch him out again.

I think some long relief for about 4 weeks then start the stretch, and then by late June/early July, showtime.

Sure, make fun of me in my vulnerable state... :-o
But seriously folks... Is Kershaw supposed to be like a Lincecum-type can't miss kid? Or hopefully, maybe even better... like a Phil Hughes can't miss kid. That guy's awesome!! !+)

I'll be somewhat pissed if he gets called up shortly. I had the #1 waiver priority in my keeper league and decided to use it on Scherzer simply because he is in the bigs now. I wasn't sure if Kershaw would get called up or not so I went with the sure thing. Plus, his line to start is much longer than Scherzer's. Did I mess up grabbing Scherzer??
