Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw joined the show to talk about the All-Star Game and the Dodgers’ season.

Dan asked Kershaw to describe the Dodgers’ season. “Kind of a rollercoaster,” Kershaw said. “As bad as we played the first few months, we’re lucky to be where we’re at.”

Kershaw talked about the early-season rumors his managerĀ  Don Mattingly was going to get fired. “We felt bad,” Kershaw said. “We were responsible. Donnie was great though. He kept the course.”

Kershaw commented on Yasiel Puig: “In Spring Training you see him and say, wow, this guy has a ton of tools. Then you said it’s Spring Training, let’s not get too high on the guy. Then he took that right into the All-Star Break. It’s pretty impressive.”

Kershaw had some interesting things to say about the report he was upset with Giants manager Bruce Bochy starting Matt Harvey over him. He said that he thinks he may have been misquoted because he was never hurt. “If I did [use that word],” Kershaw said, “I shouldn’t have. It’s a dumb word. It sounds pretty emotional for an All-Star Game.”

Kershaw said he is a big fan of Bochy. “He’s a great guy,” Kershaw said. “I have a ton of respect for him. I think he did the right thing.

Kershaw also talked about the misreport during the All-Star Game that he could have played college football. He said he quit that sport after his freshman year. But he did want to make it clear to Dan that pitchers are athletes.
