What watch? Ten watch? Such watch

Hope you know what the headline above refers to.
  • Every National League batting race scenario you can imagine is provided by Eric Stephen of True Blue L.A. My personal nightmare: Matt Kemp gets 10 hits over the next three games, but Albert Pujols homers in his last at-bat.
  • Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports has two good pieces today, on McCourt v. Selig and on Kemp very much not v. Newcombe.
  • Jay Jaffe of Baseball Prospectus has a good piece on Kemp, Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers. Among other things, he notes that when "you factor in opponent quality and ballpark, (Kershaw) has done better against a slightly tougher slate of hitters than Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee" — a reminder that just because Kershaw has gotten to pitch against the San Francisco and San Diego offenses this year doesn't mean he's had it easy.
  • Orel Hershiser and Eddie Murray make Chris Jaffe's "Ten worst career-ending performances of all time" list at the Hardball Times.
