“I’d give Kershaw No. 22” Texas awaits Dodgers 210-win legend…$760 million right-hander ‘comes clean’

“I’d give Kershaw the No. 22.”

Clayton Kershaw (35, free agency) has been linked to the Texas Rangers for a while now. The general consensus is that Kershaw will either stay with the Dodgers or retire this winter. However, Texas is on track to win the World Series this year and could be a tempting destination for Kershaw if they remain strong next year, according to the LA Times.

The LA Times reported on Monday that Kershaw could be tempted to return to Texas. For Kershaw, a return to his hometown could be quite appealing if he can win another World Series title in Texas.

Most of all, the Texans want Kershaw badly. Right-hander Jon Gray, 32, told the LA Times, “I’d give him No. 22. I’d be happy. It would be cool.” Gray has no contact with Kershaw. He debuted with the Colorado Rockies in 2015 before signing a four-year, $56 million contract with Texas in free agency in 2021-2022. The only thing they have in common is that they currently wear the number 22.

But Gray can’t forget the memories of competing against Kershaw in Colorado. As the LA Times reported, “Gray is four years younger than Kershaw. He spent the first seven years of his career in Colorado and has a lot of respect for Kershaw, even though they were West Coast rivals.”

“He’s very focused on what he’s doing. I don’t want to say it’s like a video game, but it almost seems that way. I felt that way in middle school and high school, and now that I’m playing against him, I don’t know what he’s going to do.”

Texas also has Andrew Heaney and Corey Seager, who played with Kershaw with the Dodgers. Heaney misses Kershaw, even though he only played one year with the Dodgers, in 2022. “I’ll be excited when he comes,” Heaney said. He’s probably been working on that decision for the last two years. He’s a great teammate. I really enjoyed playing with him. It’s up to him.” 토스카지노 도메인

Seeger was in cahoots with Kershaw for quite some time, from 2015 to 2021. “We still keep in touch,” he said. Even Chris Woodward, Texas manager in 2022 and now a Dodgers advisor, said, “I wanted him to come to Texas back then.”
