09:09 AM ET 11.10 | The hip problem Clayton Kershaw experienced late in the season shouldn't affect the Dodgers' interest in signing him to a long-term contract extension, General Manager Ned Colletti said Thursday. "I think that he came out of it pretty well," Colletti said on the last day of baseball's general managers' meetings in Indian Wells. Kershaw missed a scheduled start in San Francisco in mid-September because of pain resulting from a damaged labrum in his hip. He returned to pitch three more times. Near the end of the season, the Dodgers' medical staff decided Kershaw wouldn't have to undergo surgery, which could have sidelined him for the first month of next season. Kershaw, 24, won't be eligible for free agency until after the 2014 season. He is under contract for next year at $11 million and will be eligible for salary arbitration in 2014.

He's the best young pitcher in the league. The Dodgers should let him walk...maybe about 400 miles North.

No way they don't extend this guy. Why would you be grabbing everything is sight no matter the cost then let a potential hall of famer walk? You wouldn't.

No brainer .. If you can spend boat loads of money in trades and free agency you can surely pony up for your best player and homegrown talent. But again with Ned stupid decisions are just a sneeze away .
