2015 AL Central Thread

Recommended Posts

Ouch.

 

No hitter gone after 8 2/3 and 2 strikes to Bishop.

 

Kipnis might have had a shot if he was 5 inches taller.

 

 

 

Indians had perfect games through 5 for three consecutive games this week against TB.

 

Rookie Cody Anderson had one on Monday broken up by former Indian Grady Sizemore. Former Indians Asdrubal Cabrera and Sizemore reached there in that inning against Carrasco.

 

Brandon Morrow also had a no-hitter broken up against TB broken up with one out to go as well.

 

 

Indians' last no-hitter was Len Barker in 1981 still.

Why in the world do you have Miguel Cabrera trying to steal bases?

Justin Verlander, who the Tigers extended two years before his deal expired and who is still owed at least $112M over four seasons after this one, looks like he might be completely toast. He has a 6.75 ERA, a 7.05 FIP, and a 1.2 K/BB. In his one quality start of four appearances this season, he allowed 6 hits and 5 walks in six innings with 3 K's.

The strangest thing about Verlander is that he still is in the mid 90s with his fastball, he just doesnt have the command anymore. I wonder if that mysterious "core muscle injury" that happened two offseasons ago did a a lot more than anyone realized at the time

If John Danks had a Cy Young Award, four top-5 Cy Young finishes, and a MVP award on top of all that.

That's all over and done though. Raise your hand if you think Verlander will ever come near those numbers again...

 

I think every team would take Danks' contract before Verlander's.

Sure, but it's an easier pill to swallow when he provided your team with such a dominant stretch and was part of 5 playoff teams and two WS appearances. It's not like they signed him as a free agent in 2013 or something.

Danks was worth contract when he signed.

It appears their reign of terror in the Central is ovee.

Another 3-0 against teams outside of the division. Definitely the toughest division in the league.
