Clayton Kershaw on Jimmy Kimmel

Part 1

Part 2

Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw claimed he was nervous leading up to his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Monday night, but I'm not buying it.

The 25-year-old southpaw has a career ERA of 2.67 and has shown few signs of ever wilting under the pressure of the spotlight. And he delivered again last night, sharing a hilarious story about a prank from his rookie season and bemoaning the fact that Pluto, discovered by his great uncle, is no longer considered a planet.

Just as New York Mets ace Matt Harvey is challenging Kershaw for best pitcher in the National League, now Kershaw is giving Harvey a run for best pitcher on late night.
