Found August 27, 2012 on Razzball:
Max Scherzer is finally starting to post some non-apocalyptic ERA/WHIP results to go along with his thunderous league-leading K totals.  A 7 inning / 1 ER / 9 K win against the Pujoless Angels marks his 4th straight start with a Win, 6+ IP, 2 ER or less, and 8+ Ks (this was actually his 8th straight start with 8+ Ks!).   His season ERA and WHIP are still north of 4.00/1.30 but he will under those marks in nein time at this rate.  I imagine the only thing scarier than facing Mad Max Scherzer right now is imagining him channel his inner Mel Gibson (1980′s crazy, charismatic version) and intimidating the opposition by popping his pitching shoulder in and out of the socket between pitches.  Anyway, in other news… Delmon Young - 5-for-8 over the weekend with 2 doubles and a HR at home against the Angels.  Luckily, there are no Jewish panhandlers in Detroit or else he might have re-channeled his inner Mel Gibson (2000′s crazy, Anti-Semitic version) Albert Pujols - Missed the past four day...

In the interview, Scherzer acknowledges the problems he has had, and does not use BABIP “luck” as an excuse. But he also says...
