  1. Clayton Kershaw’s Fantastic Summer

    The Dodgers’ star did amazingly well this year, just not this spring. After back surgery, Kershaw’s ERA was an average 3.57. In June, it was a phenomenal 0.87.

Were it not for Pedro Martinez’s lowest-ever walks and hits for the Red Sox in 1999 and 2000, Kershaw would be shoo-in for having the best pitching summer since World War I.
