Earlier this spring, Clayton Kershaw said he was unhappy with his results and that results mattered to him, even in spring training.

But if that raised any concern among Dodgers fans, the worrying can probably cease now. There is nothing wrong with Kershaw's stuff. One scout who saw him recently clocked Kershaw's fastball at 95 mph. Here is what the scout had to say:

"It was like hitters didn't stand a chance, I'm talking about major-league hitters, not kids up for a cup of coffee. He was throwing hard, the ball was moving all over the place. I don't know what he was talking about, based on what I saw."
