Scherzer Masters Angels While CJ Nibbles Into Oblivion

Angels are under .500 The Angels had a chance to be over .500 for the first time since opening day of last season. Instead they are back under .500, familiar terrirory. Max Scherzer dominated the Angels in the way an ace does, but he is the #2 starter for the Tigers, right? Right. So how did our #2 starter, C.J. Wilson do? Well he threw 111 pitches over five innings, allowing four runs in the process and generally looking overmatched, stubbornly nibbling around the zone that the true ace of the team, Jered Weaver, dominated jsut a few hours ago last night. Albert Pujols hit home run #498...

Max Scherzer will not be only quality starting pitcher available as free agent in offseason

Max Scherzer will not be only quality starting pitcher available as free agent in offseason

Will the Tigers re-sign Scherzer? Based on the fact that he turned down a big offer from them already and will have multiple suitors, it seems more likely that he will leave than stay. But the fact that there are multiple starting pitchers available wont hurt the Tigers cause. The law of supply and demand generally comes into play in free agency. When it comes to the upcoming baseball offseason, there will be a decent number of quality starting pitchers available. Detroit Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer appears to be the best of a solid group of starters who...
