What Is It, Statheads?

Chat: Chat with Rob Neyer - SportsNation - ESPN

"AJ (Columbus) Will Clayton Kershaw take another step up this year? It doesn't seem like he'll be able to cure his BB rate overnight.

Rob Neyer (12:50 PM) Pretty amazing that a guy with a 2.71 ERA in 30 starts would win only eight games, huh? Yeah, that was partly because he averaged fewer than six innings per start, but still ... I don't know if he'll cut the walks down, but I'll bet you he wins more than a dozen games this year."

Is it the Walks or the ERA that is indicative of Clayton Kershaw's ability?

ray here-ERA....I really think the BBs come down this year. He was working on a slider in the offseason.
