@BIah No doubt Felix is having a remarkable season.  But SIERA, xFIP, FIP, and K-BB% all agree that Kershaw's has been better.

By SIERA, tonight was Hernandez' best start since April 9th (also against the Brewers).  It's probably too much to hope that he's corrected something.

Roberto Hernandez' season SIERA of 4.71 is the 5th highest in the majors among qualified pitchers this season.  His K-BB% is an abysmal 3.8, the lowest among qualified pitchers.  Can't say I'm excited to see him tomorrow.

Numata has struck out a third of the batters he's faced so far.  His K-BB% is 27.8.  Yes, we're still in SSS territory.

Only 62 Dodgers pitchers (since 1914) have struck out at least 10 in an outing with no walks (or HBP).  Kershaw has done it 5 times, while Greinke has done it twice.

Erisbel has already accumulated 0.4 UZR at SS, he has easily the highest UZR/150 at SS for the Dodgers this season.  SSS of course.

SVS is now through 139 PA's, and he's tied (witih Tulo) for the 4th-highest wRC+ in the majors (min 100 PA's) -- and has 1.7 fWAR.  That's value.

@PagansOedipalComplex @nudibranch @Dang88 I didn't say it wasn't.  Though he might be even more valuable at 3B, where his defense wouldn't hold back his WAR as much.
