Despite what Giants fans want to believe, Madison Bumgarner and Clayton Kershaw are friends.
Before many Giants-Dodgers games over the years, they could be seen talking on the field, in plain sight of everyone.
So it should come as any surprise that Kershaw would love to have Bumgarner on the Dodgers.
"I love Bum," Kershaw said Friday at a Dodgers holiday event according to Dodgers Nation. "If we signed him, that’d be great."

NBC Sports Bay Area's Alex Pavlovic reported Thursday, citing sources, that the Dodgers and Bumgarner have a mutual interest in a deal.
Bumgarner in Dodger blue is the worst nightmare for Giants fans. But it's a real possibility with Los Angeles missing out on top free agent Gerrit Cole.

Kershaw hasn't been able to bring a World Series to Los Angeles on his own, so of course, he would love for a postseason hero to come help him end the Dodgers' title drought.
