Wishful Thinking

Clayton Kershaw and his wife Ellen are promoting their book this week, Arise: Live Out Your Faith and Dreams on Whatever Field You Find Yourself. Roberto Baly (and his baby boy!) of Vin Scully Is My Homeboy caught up with them at a book signing this weekend.

Kershaw and his wife are scheduled to meet with the media on Tuesday at Dodger Stadium. Just thinking out loud here, if Kershaw and the Dodgers were to agree to a multi-year contract extension, right around the time the two sides would file salary figures for arbitration, a Tuesday press conference would the perfect time to announce such a thing.

Maybe I'm just feeling optimistic on a Monday. But even if Kershaw doesn't join Matt Kemp in the long-term crew this year, there is still plenty of time to get a deal done, as Kershaw has three years before hitting free agency. I have to imagine that one of the top baseball priorities of whatever new ownership comes in on April 30 will be to lock up the ace.
