Verlander-Scherzer matchup? Dodgers would have something to say about that, but it would be entertaining, for sure.
Dodgers are like 1 win in their last 12 or so. Arizona's playing well. And of course the Nationals - I don't see any others in the NL having a chance. AL, Cleveland or Houston.

I'd like to see Arizona-Houston.

2nd start, so far 8 IP 1 hit 0 runs.

Btw, 1st batter he faced got the only hit. ERA down to 3.58.. Crazy.

What's crazy is that we let him go...

Deserved to play his whole career wearing the olde english D, I honestly believe Mr. I is turning over in his grave.

of course they didn't have to trade him...but ultimately he was the one who chose to leave. If the Tigers wanted to trade him and he really wanted to stay, he had the power to do so.

Because he wanted to compete. Nonetheless, a good team often keeps his star players.. Almost Cy Young last season, for a while this season just as dominant. Plus, as my mom would say, they got jack crap back.
