In year of pitcher, Donaldson, Kershaw shine for Indy

  BVL hitting, as we know it, will become extinct in our lifetime. In the Ice Age of 1944, 63 shutouts were pitched (a blank job every 4.25 games), 9 starters sub-2.00 ERAs, Indianapolis team era was 2.09. The hitters? Only 3 batters hit .300 or better. Buster Posey, the Clemente favorite, topped the league with a .324 average with 6 home runs and 22 RBI. But the voters selected Josh Donaldson, whose stead play on and off the field guided the Ice Cubes to the postseason. The third baseman slugged 13 home runs, drove home 33 batters and batted .271. ¶ There is little to argue about a Gooden winner named Clayton Kershaw. The lefty was again spectacular for the high-flying Ice Cubes: 8-4, 1.90 ERA, seven complete games, 2 shutous, 131 strikeouts in 109 innings thrown. For Kershaw, it was his second Gooden nod in three years. ¶ Banksville's righty flamethrower Noah Syndergaard (7-3, 2.11ERA) was named best rookie and Rocky Balboa won his fourth Stengel trophy, guiding his club to the historic 18-0 start and playing in another World Series.
