Max Scherzer, on what he admires about Clayton Kershaw: "He attacks the zone, doesn't walk guys. He brings it every single time. ... He goes out there and competes as well as anybody."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Max Scherzer was asked if he was excited about the game today, given the opponent. "Yeah. I mean, isn't that obvious? I've always said, ‘You don't measure yourself against the worst; you measure yourself against the best.' I've always thought that."

They'll call someone up from Triple-A for Saturday's game but the move hasn't been announced by the team yet.
