Game Thread #125: Brewers (71-53) at Dodgers (63-60)

Today it's the so-boring-this-is-the-last-I'm-going-to-mention-him Jeff Suppan against the personification of hype, Clayton Kershaw.

If you haven't seen Kershaw's minor league numbers, check them out--they're pretty ridiculous. Usually players who are the youngest in the game are up for a reason (think Robin Yount), and Kershaw is the real deal. He and Billingsley are going to form a scary good two-headed ace monster at the top of the Dodgers' rotation next year; between the two of them in LA and the Cain/Lincecum/Sanchez troika in San Francisco, there's some amazing young pitching in the NL West. Throw in Brandon Webb, Dan Haren, Randy Johnson, Jake Peavy, and Chris Young, and, well, let's just say I'm really glad we're in a division with the Pirates and Astros instead.

Game time is 3:10 CT, and don't forget to check out the BR Game Preview.
