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?
