    Russell Martin said it's the best he's been a catcher for. Martin is young also, but that says a lot. He mowed through Lowell, Drew and Casey yesterday.

    He'll be in LA before the years over, count on it.

    And on a side note, does it get any better than Vin Scully? I'm not sure if he still does the games by himself anymore, but there isn't another like him in the business.

    I remember watching one thrown by Barry Zito a couple of years ago, this one was close to it, but I have never seen anything like the one Zito threw.

    Thanks for that.

    I just found the #1 pick for my ultra draft after my auction.

    The best part about his curve ball is the fact that he throws a 94-97 mph fastball any pitch surronding it. Zito's curve when it was at it's best though was plain filthy.

    Yup. The curve is only half the story, it's that he can go from throwing 94-95 one pitch to a nasty curveball the next that is so amazing. If I could have any prospect in the league, Kershaw would be it. Nothing against anybody else, but I believe that Kershaw could easily be the best pitcher in the entire league in 6 years.

    Pitching prospects right?

    I take Chamberlain, Buchholz, and Price over him, but he's right there.

    While you can make an argument for Chamberlain and Buchholz, I don't see how you could consider Price a better prospect than Kershaw.

    And none of those 3 you named have a pitch that filthy.

    In general, I'm that high on him.

    I think in a year he'll be without a doubt the top young pitcher out there.
