Today’s Complete Schedule Meeting of the Corey Kluber Society, At Last The Purpose of This Post The purpose of this post is to announce another meeting — in this case, at 7:05pm ET today (Thursday) — of the Corey Kluber Society. About the Corey Kluber Society The Corey Kluber Society (CKS) — recognized by authorities such as Wikipedia and whomever designed this bumper sticker — is composed of individuals all bound by their singular enthusiasm for the works and days of Cleveland right-hander Corey Kluber. How to Attend the Meeting To attend tonight’s meeting, one needs merely to (a) situate himself in front of a broadcast of the Cleveland-Baltimore game and then (b) expose himself* to Corey Kluber. *Spiritually, that is. Expose himself spiritually. Minutes from Most Recent Meeting Minutes from the most recent meeting of the Society are unavailable, on account of the present author was woefully absent from said meeting. How the Author Was Occupying Himself Instead Instead of situating himself in front of a broadcast of Kluber’s last start and then exposing himself* to Corey Kluber, the author was instead packing most of his early possessions into a U-Haul-brand moving truck. *Spiritually, that is. Exposing himself spiritually. How the Author Ought to Be Punished The crime for missing one of Kluber’s starts is also the punishment, of course. Preparatory Text: Emerson’s Representative Men To prepare for Kluber’s start tonight, members of the Society should consider reading the entirety of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Representative Men and then adding a chapter to it called Kluber; or, the Pitcher. Today’s MLB.TV Free Game Arizona at Washington | 16:05 ET Patrick Corbin (102.2 IP, 98 xFIP-, 2.2 WAR) faces Stephen Strasburg (86.1 IP, 87 xFIP-, 1.7 WAR). Of note regarding Strasburg: while his park-adjusted ERA relative to league (ERA-) is ninth-lowest among qualified starts, Strasburg’s WAR as calculated by runs allowed is only fair (36th among qualifiers). The likely cause: Strasburg is first overall among those same qualified pitchers by unearned runs, tied with Milwaukee’s Wily Peralta, it seems. Readers’ Preferred Broadcast: Washington Radio.
