As I was saying last night, and was misunderstood by my esteemed colleague from Da Bronx, it doesn't take a great left-hander like Kershaw to shut down this lineup as it is presently constructed. Even a decent one (Ryu) or a nondescript journeyman (Capuano) is enough to do it. The point was that pedestrian is the only level that matters. Does he wear a glove on his right hand? Great. You're good to go vs. the Reds. Anything above it is gravy.
They need some help, Walt.
