3. Clayton Kershaw

Kershaw will not appear in the four-game series in Chicago this week, but the return series in Los Angeles is scheduled for August 26-28. If Kershaw and Arrieta found themselves matched up, it would easily have that Hollywood feel built-in. These two are likely heading for a head-to-head showdown for this year’s Cy Young award, and a possible head-to-head victory may just be the final hair split to decide the voting.

As an added bonus, a meeting in LA would also put Arrieta back at the site of his first career no-hitter last summer.
