Royals Drop Game 2, 4-3

Entering tonight, Jason Vargas was the proud owner of a 1.52 road ERA. I’d say that it went up just a smidge. It was not a horrible start by any means. Just short of a quality start, Ned Yost took Vargas out after throwing 5.2 innings of decent baseball. 1.68 is his new road ERA, which leads the league. Jason Vargas threw 5.2 innings while only allowing two earned runs. It wasn’t...

Vargas is putting up filthy numbers on the road for KC

It would be hard to fault the Tampa Bay Rays for their early-season struggles considering they were missing three-fifths of their starting rotation. They're beginning to climb out of that funk, and they're hoping the return of Jeremy Hellickson leads to more success.

Vargas looks to get Royals back on track against the Angels

There's something about the final days of June that appeal to the Los Angeles Angels.

Jason Vargas: Dissecting His Starts

Jason Vargas has been stellar so far this year for the Kansas City Royals. Much more than many expected. He was projected to be a solid pitcher who ate innings and hopefully end the season with a record over .500 and an ERA under 4.50. But so far, he has pitched like an ace. When dissecting Vargas’ starts, you can see that much of his success is coming from two factors: the amount...
