Kershaw himself said he thought his pitches were "effectively wild," with a lot of the Cardinals batters swinging high out of the zone. I don't expect him to maintain that level of success against more patient lineups.

He was never dropped in my leagues... :-t

But to answer your question, I would say yes...although it does depend on your roster, the categories, and the leagues size.

did he say the same about arizona and washington? :-b

i dont think he'll be consistent like this, and you have to expect some rough patches, but he obviously has a ton of upside.

Kershaw will still give up his fair share of walks as his efficiency is still a work in progress, as expected. For what it's worth, he tossed 108 pitches yesterday and so, if he has his moments where his control is more spot-on, he might go deeper into games. The schedule doesn't look that threatening on paper after all. Regardless, he's still more than decent than an average #4-5 starter.

I've been happy with the reacquisition of Kershaw for my team, league is relatively deep, although I don't expect more dominant starts like the former, if he provides a high 3 ERA with 8+ k/9 I'll enjoy his presence greatly as a FA pickup.
