Corey Kluber Enters The Home Of “The King” And Picks Up A Win

In 2014, Corey Kluber and Felix Hernandez were neck and neck for the AL Cy Young award and we all know how that ended up for Kluber and Hernandez as the former may have stolen one away from “the King.” Felix led in ERA, but Kluber had him in strikeouts and some other categories and ended up snagging that award. It was quite a story for the right-hander who had seemingly come...

Felix Hernandez’s Other Weapon

Wednesday afternoon in Tampa Bay, Felix Hernandez wrapped up a complete-game shutout. It was just his second in the past three seasons, but you shouldn’t let that fool you.
