God I hope he lives up to the hype whenever he gets called up:

Kershaw should have little trouble overpowering big league batters and racking up strikeout numbers. His stuff is as good as anybody. Chris Young of the Padres has worked out with Kershaw during the offseason and says he has the best stuff he's ever seen. He's basically more gifted than Jake Peavy!

His command is not big league ready though and I foresee him going through the same growing pains that Scott Kazmir experienced in his first couple of seasons.
