There are no red states. There are no blue states. There are only states the color of jelly beans.

Kershaw is left handed a long time ace prospect with little to on injury history to concern people and he's in shape and he's 20 years old.

Joba Chamberlain is a pudgy 23 year old right hander with problems staying healthy who never really projected as an ace by scouts as much as exists more on hype than performance

Kershaw is more comparable to a cole hamels than a joba chamberlain - and as a phils fan i'd probably take kershaw over hamels :)


Kershaw's numbers also don't even come close to Joba's even though he pitched in probably the worst hitting division in the league since the 20s and Joba pitched in the A.L. East.

Kershaw's career: 107 IP, 100 Ks, 52 walks, 4.26 ERA, 1.495 WHIP
Joba's career: 124 IP, 152 Ks, 45 walks, 2.17 ERA, 1.158 WHIP

Kershaw may turn out to be great, but I don't think you can really say he's a better prospect than Joba right now. He may never be as effective as Joba's been so far.

That being said, there's no way the Dodgers trade him for Cano.

Have the Yankees expressed any interest in Derrick Lowe? Please tell me yes... the Yanks can afford to take a chance on a 30 something pitcher, the Phils can not. I'm hoping the Yanks will save the Phils from another Adam Eaton/Freddie Garcia/Tom Gordon.


Brian, on a personal note, a plea ...
This is the first and best site for Eagles/Yankees coverage! Where else can I find an Eagles/Yankees fan that covers both towns/teams?! Please don't give up your great Yankees and Eagles coverage!!!

PS... If you need a guest commentator from time to time on the Eagles, let me know.

And Joba was in his second season in the majors and kershaw was still a rookie.

I should have known better, no one over values their young guys more than the yankees, and their fans.

Hence why Santana pitches for the Mets and the yanks missed the playoffs...

If I'm overvaluing Joba so did every single prospect ranking going into last season. The guy is a stud, a stud who's done it against real hitters.

How'd the Mets do with Santana?
