Daily SP Rankings: Tuesday, Sep 9

Right now we’re in the midst of a huge September series involving the Kansas City Royals. When was the last time we said that! Detroit’s Max Scherzer rates as the day’s best option while Kansas City’s Jason Vargas rates as the worst. Trevor Bauer draws the Twins, who actually rank 7th in wOBA over the last two weeks. I still like start here in all but the shallowest of formats...

Scherzer and the Tigers blow 4-run lead but end up routing Tribe 11-4 in extra innings

It wasn’t pretty but we’ll take it which is pretty much the only way you could sum up the Tigers’ 11-4 extra innings win over the Indians Thursday night to wrap up a 4-game series in Cleveland. 11 runs though? What’s not to like about that? Nothing really. The Tigers were able to pour it onto young Cleveland starter Trevor Bauer early who had trouble finding the strike zone...

Tribe tries to gain momentum against Tigers

Max Scherzer doesn't seem too concerned that he hasn't looked completely sharp over his last three starts for the Detroit Tigers. The right-hander looks to bounce back from his worst outing in more than two months Thursday night against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field. After yielding 10 runs in four innings of an 11-4 loss to Kansas City on June 17, Scherzer (15...

Scherzer continuously developing, refining pitching style

Max Scherzer's internal pep talk as he approaches each season, each game and each pitch goes something like this: "As an athlete, you're either getting better, or you're getting worse." And for Scherzer, there's no option. He's going to get better. This plain-and-simple, professional mantra, along with an ardent curiosity, unyielding determination and...

Scherzer stops bleeding for Tigers

DETROIT -- The better Max Scherzer pitches this season, the more money he's going to make in the winter. Right now, no one at Comerica Park is worried about that. With the Tigers looking at a five-game losing streak and the unthinkable possibility of letting another team back into the AL Central race, Scherzer did exactly what an ace is supposed to do. He pitched seven innings...

Detroit Tigers: two areas of major concern

The Detroit Tigers are in first place by 5 full games in what has once again turned out to be a mediocre AL Central. Their 28-19 record and .596 winning percentages are stellar. Only the Oakland A’s have a better winning % in the AL at .608. Yet once again, Tigers fans far and wide are left to wonder and some have resorted to their annual panic regarding their favorite boys of...

Max Scherzer says Sports Illustrated 'lied to and misled' him

Max Scherzer is on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated, but the reigning American League Cy Young winner is not happy the magazine chose to focus on his contract dispute with the Detroit Tigers. In March, the Tigers broke off negotiation with Scherzer after he rejected a contract extension offer that reportedly was for $144 million over six years. SI's cover features...
