200 wins… 20 wins should be 10 years. That’s hard to do.”
Los Angeles Dodgers ‘living legend’ Clayton Kershaw (36)’s 200th career win, catcher Austin Barnes, told MLB.com: In a home game against the New York Mets on the 19th (Korean time), Kershaw went 7 innings, 3 hits, 9 strikeouts and no runs, achieving 3 wins of the season and 200 career wins. Barnes got the ball from Kershaw that day, but 200 wins is surprising.
“I think Kershaw really wanted 200 wins,” Barnes said. this is a queue It was definitely a win for him and his team.” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts also said, “Tonight’s performance really epitomized who he is.”
But Kershaw didn’t care. “The goal is to win,” he said. So tonight is really cool. My 200 wins also means that the team won that much. I was able to win 200 because I was on a great team.” The Dodgers were able to win 200 games because of Kershaw, and because of Kershaw, they were able to win 200 games.
Kershaw has been plagued by health issues in recent years. In fact, in 33 games in 2015, 16 wins and 7 losses, an average ERA of 2.33. After digesting 232⅔ innings, there were only two seasons in which he exceeded 170 innings, let alone 200 innings (175 innings in 2017 and 178⅓ innings in 2019). He didn’t even have a 30-game appearance season. His frequent appearances on the disabled list feel like an annual event.
Still, Kershaw is still the top class in the major leagues as long as he is healthy. He went 18-4 with an earned run average of 2.31 in 175 innings in 2017 and went 16-5 with an earned run average of 3.03 in 178.1 innings in 2019. However, his last two years in a row had only 22 games, 121⅔ innings and 126⅓ innings. He is no longer the first starter, and his role is to be the back of the starters.
The Dodgers recently signed a one-year free agent contract for the second consecutive year in order to secure a safety device for Kershaw. Even though they did not even give a qualifying offer and treated it coldly, it would not be easy for the Dodgers to find a pitcher at the back of the starting lineup that would be calculated unless they catch Kershaw in the free agent market.
Kershaw is 36 years old.스포츠토토 He’s not young, but he’s not very old either. If only his health is guaranteed, he can challenge the Dodgers’ most wins by surpassing 200 wins. There are three Dodgers pitchers with 200 wins: Don Sutton (233 wins), Don Drysdale (209 wins), and Kershaw. There is a strong possibility that he will surpass Drysdale this season and rank second in the Dodgers career record.
There is also no law that says Kershaw should not challenge Sutton for the most wins in the Dodgers career, depending on the contract period in the future. For reference, Sutton won 200 games against the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 19, 1978, when he was 33 years old (9 innings, 6 hits, 6 strikeouts, 1 walk, 2 runs). On June 27, 1968, at the age of 32, Drysdale won 200 victories against the San Francisco Giants (9 innings, 2 hits, 6 strikeouts, 3 walks, 1 run).
Compared to the two, Kershaw was 3-4 years older and achieved 200 wins. That’s why Kershaw’s challenge is all the more meaningful.
