Maeda got beat up at home in game 5. That's who would then have to pitch game 6 if Kershaw pitched game 5. Did you really think Maeda could do better than Kershaw in game 6?

If Kershaw wins game 5, game 6 doesn't matter. It would come down to a game 7 and then all bets are off. I like the chances more in that situation rather than Kershaw in a deciding game. As been noted, his record isn't amazing in those as the starting pitcher.

A little late here but you make a good point. Plus I think i saw where Kershaw has better #'s on short rest.

Cory Seager wins the Rookie of the Year award with unanimous vote.

My questions is did Julio Urias play enough to be considered a rookie this past year, or is next year his rookie year??

If so, we can have back to back ROY winners.

Sorry, no. Urias was a rookie in 2016.

The Dodgers had the '79 through '82 run of four consecutive rookies of the year. Rick Sutcliffe, Steve Howe, Fernando Valenzuela and Steve Sax......and then they broke their own record '92 through '96 and had five rookies of the year in a row. Eric Karros, Mike Piazza, Raul Mondesi, Hideo Nomo and Todd Hollandsworth.

Maybe someone will surprise and win RoY for LA, extending a new streak, but it won't be Urias.

De Leon could potentially be a ROY candidate if he does not get traded. I suspect he will have a chance to earn a spot in the rotation unless they pick up 1-2 pitchers.

FYI, rookie status is still intact as long as they do not reach 45 days on the active roster (25 man roster) or 50 innings pitched. De Leon only had about 17 IP. Not sure how many days on the active roster.

There seems to be a lot of smoke around De Leon to the Twins for Dozier.

But I think it'd be pretty hard to get De Leon into the rotation (which is why the Dodgers are more likely to move him than, say, someone like Bellinger).

The rotation depth as it stands is something like
Kershaw
Hil
Maeda
Wood
Urias
Kazmir
McCarthy
De Leon
Stripling
Stewart
Ryu

It is, of course, complicated by injuries (Kazmir, McCarthy, Ryu) and innings limits (Urias). I think it's highly unlikely that the Dodgers add more starters and that De Leon starts the year in the rotation.

Last year the Dodgers needed 15 starting pitchers.

I wish they could trade Wood, Kazmir, or McCarthy instead of DeLeon. Wood and McCarthy were risky acquisitions who haven't been healthy enough to do anything yet. Maybe they will this year, but you can't count on it. Kazmir is only okay, at best. Of course, they have to keep the ones no one else wants.

Hill was magnificent but only last year. He has never been durable and has only gone above 100 innings twice in his career. Maeda was the only one who made it all the way through the 2016 season, but he taxed the bullpen by averaging about five and a third innings per start. Urias is young, and they will still be careful with him.

A shortage of MLB-ready young pitchers is what forced the Dodgers to throw money at Anderson, McCarthy, and Wood a couple years ago, hoping one or two of them would produce.

Joe Davis. He started doing games last year for most road games when Scully was off.
