1. Clayton Kershaw – LAD

This one is similar to the center fielders. It’s Clayton Kershaw well beyond everyone else similar to Mike Trout. Every year since 2009 Kershaw has posted an ERA under 3.00. That’s incredible. We very well may be witnessing the best left hander pitcher baseball has seen since Randy Johnson. You can already put him up with Johnson and Sandy Koufax as one of the best lefties of all time. You could go beyond that and say one of the best pitchers of all time. The guy turns 29 in March. He has 3 Cy Young’s and a MVP to go with it. He is just pure dominance. I don’t care if he has struggled in the Postseason. I’ll take his career numbers over anything else, any day.
