2018 Dodgers Review: Clayton Kershaw - True Blue LA
We’ve finally reached the final player review from last season, which means the Dodgers can finally make their move this offseason, right?
It was another year of battling injuries for the Dodgers longtime ace. But when he was on the mound, Clayton Kershaw was still able to be effective.
What went right
If you compare the 2018 version of Kershaw to the standard he has set over the past decade in baseball, it was underwhelming from a standpoint of dominance. But that doesn't mean he wasn’t great at preventing the other team from scoring runs.
In 26 starts, the lefty finished with a 2.73 ERA. That would’ve been good for fourth in the National League had Kershaw qualified, falling five outs shy at 161 1⁄3 innings.
The 30-year-old was charged with two or less runs in 20 of 26 games and struck out more than five hitters per walk (5.34) for the fifth straight season.
With 155 strikeouts — his lowest total since his first year in 2008 — Kershaw moved from 68 to 57 on the all-time list. He is 8th among active players and is only 121 away from a tie with Sandy Koufax for third in franchise history, 211 away from Don Drysdale for second.
After coming back from his second stint on the DL, the lefty went 7-1 with a 2.20 ERA from June 28 to September 18. Impressive for someone who lost two to three mph of his fastball this year.

Nationals, Phillies push for Harper, Machado
One major question is whether Harper and Boras are intent on getting the biggest deal in history in terms of total dollars, average annual salary or simply the biggest free-agent deal of all-time. The latter belongs to Alex Rodriguez, who signed a 10-year, $275 million deal with the Yankees in 2007 after opting out of the final three seasons of the 10-year, $252 million pact he signed with the Rangers before the '01 season. Bottom line: Harper might get a deal somewhere between A-Rod's and Stanton's, and Boras could still claim the "record" for largest free-agent contract ever.

Yasmani Grandal's One-Year Deal With the Brewers Proves MLB Free Agency Is Genuinely Broken
"But it’s not quite as cut and dry as general managers being smarter. If a team has any interest in winning, it stands to reason that there’s a point at which “payroll money saved” will cease to outweigh the cost of missing out on a strong talent. And if the league has any interest in keeping a peaceful relationship with its players, then this system will have to change—unless it wants a work stoppage, which is beginning to feel more and more likely."
