For my money, Kershaw is the toughest pitcher we will face from here until the end of the year… Blue Jays should’ve pushed harder for him in a deal for Halladay, as he’d be about the only piece truly worth giving up for ace for. Here’s hoping we catch him on an off-night tonight, though he certainly looks good thus far, so… here’s hoping that Wainwright can outlast him and the Cards row can up his pitch count early on.
