As part of Clayton Kershaw’s time at the Dodgers annual children’s holiday party, he touched on several topics including the Astros scandal, the free agency of Gerrit Cole, and the idea of joining forces with Madison Bumgarner.
Beyond all that, he also spoke about the off-season for Los Angeles so far, and his personal feelings two months after a shocking early exit from the postseason which he still puts heavily on his shoulders.
First, we’ll focus on his thoughts regarding the team’s inability to get it done in October.
It’s such a hard question for me to answer just because — bluntly — postseason, if I pitch better, we probably are winning. So, it’s like, it’s not an easy question for me to answer. But, we’re in a great spot again. We got a great team. We lost Richie [Hill], [Hyun-Jin] Ryu, Russ [Martin] — we’ve lost a few guys. But I think Andrew [Friedman, president of baseball operations] will make necessary adjustments where he sees fit and we’ll be in a great spot to win the division again.
