“It’s a dream for me to sit in front of a TV to watch Clayton Kershaw. I’ve seen a lot of good pitchers, but watching Clayton Kershaw, I think, deserves a lot more respect, a lot more attention. … I don’t have enough words to actually say how great I think that kid actually is. .. This kid seems to be getting even better than I was, even better than Sandy Koufax. More exciting than Roger Clemens and Greg Maddux.”
That quote might have come from you, or your pal Steve, or your dad, or your co-worker. I’m repeating it here because it came from Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez yesterday on SiriusXM’s MLB Network Radio channel with Cliff Floyd and Casey Stern.
