Well, he's about to face the Padres, so he's good for another 7-9.

Not even the second longest streak by a Dodger.

Kershaw can do it though, he's on a completely different level than almost every other pitcher out there.

FWIW, Erasmo Ramirez put together a 20+ inning scoreless streak this season. Granted, it stretched over 5 starts or something. So what I'm saying is that Kershaw is probably 1.8 times better than Erasmo Ramirez.

Being the dodgers and my first thought was, that isn't Sandy Koufax and two... oh yeah Drysdale had the record until Orel broke it.

Awesome year by Kershaw to say the list but Orel was during the roid rage days of one slider that just spins getting crushed 500 feet.

/You might think Orel got a bum deal when it comes to the name department until you meet his brother Anel.

Now 1988 is the "roid rage days"? Boy, that era just keeps getting bigger & bigger.

League Leaders:

Canseco with 42 HR (obviously roiding, but only 42?)
Strawberry with 39 (does cocaine count as a steroid?)

Well, Orel was in the NL so I don't much care about Canseco.

More importantly, here's the 1978 NL and the 1988 NL. Which is which?

Option A: Average team hit .254/.320/.372 with 3.99 runs per game and 106 HR.
Option B: Average team hit .248/.310/.363 with 3.88 runs per game and 107 HR.

I expect it's obvious which year had all the juicers.

(BTW, the NL HR leader in 1978 had 40. Bunch of cheaters there.)

Much like roiders

McGwire admitted to first using roids in 89/90.

One person using roids the year AFTER makes it a part of the era? Neat.

So I guess the PED era really started in EIGHTEEN eighty-eight, a year before Pud Galvin started using monkey testosterone.

Everybody knows that guys like Hank Aaron and Gil Hodges were using baboon spunk back in the '60s, but nobody said anything about it.

1968 was the HEART of the roid rage days. That's obvious to anyone.

Except Dodger Stadium is playing relatively neutral these days, especially since McCourt put in the luxury seats down the foul lines. Pitchers still have a slight advantage, but not by much.

Most folks don't realize that DS doesn't supress homeruns despite what most announcers repeat without doing any research. However, the symmetrical dimensions do limit doubles and triples and that's why it slightly favors the pitcher.

The classic definition of The Steroid Era sets the beginning circa 1992, but the big-leaguers who were juicing by then - Canseco, Palmeiro, Dykstra, etc. - didn't start in the majors. Canseco admitted he started using in 1985 when he was in AA, and he can't be the only one. It was probably a bigger deal in the minors than The Show in the late 80s.

Therefore, as a certfied baseball historian, my interpretation is 1985-91 is the Prelude to the Steroid Era, directly following the Cocaine Era.
