Giants coach Antoan Richardson: Mike Shildt is not a racist
Despite not having a chance to finish a perfect game, Clayton Kershaw responded much calmer than most on Twitter.
Clayton Kershaw needed a total of six more outs to have a perfect game when he was finally pulled out of the game by Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts.
Robert’s controversial decision to take his pitcher out of the game, even though Kershaw was busy dealing and really hadn’t exhausted himself pitching, only provoked a series of very intense and angry reactions. Many were upset and some absurdly angry at the fact that Kershaw didn’t have a chance to make a perfect game.
But how did Kershaw react? Well, in a relatively sane and calm way.
That’s certainly a reaction different from most people on Twitter.

All in all, Kershaw’s reaction was quite friendly and almost boring. Pretty much everyone would have thought it perfectly understandable to be publicly annoyed at missing that chance for a perfect game.
But the guy seems very calm about the whole situation.
Given Kershaw’s age and the fact that the Dodgers are aiming to win another World Series, it makes more sense that Roberts would want to protect his pitcher. This particular case seems a bit much and overly cautious, but it looks like Kershaw isn’t exactly terribly upset about the situation.
Who knows if Kershaw will ever be able to deliver a perfect game again? It may never happen. This might be his last best chance at one.
But at least publicly, Kershaw is pretty calm. That’s admittedly pretty cool to see.
