Clayton Kershaw dominant, lowers career WHIP under 1

I’m aware that WHIP is a rate stat and it could very well rise above 1 as soon as next start. However:
Kershaw hasn’t had a WHIP above 1 since 2012
His WHIP since 2013 is .854, so he’s gliding at a pace of well below a 1 WHIP right now and has for some time now
If he continues his since 2013 pace, he’ll pass Ed Walsh for second place next start and then Addie Joss for number 1 by the end of the season.
It’s true that Kershaw hasn’t had his decline phase yet, but neither did Addie Joss. There is a great chance that when Kershaw passes Joss’ 2327 IP, (probably 2019) that he’ll have a lower career era than Addie Joss.
All that said, he’ll probably finish his career with a WHIP higher than 1, but it’s still cool to see a guy with over 1800 career innings have a WHIP below 1.

Big Ed doesn’t like it when you don’t score runs for him. Please score runs for Big Ed.
