Darvish struck out 14 last night without walking anyone. That’s pretty darn special.  Plus: looking ahead to the Rangers-A’s and Cardinals-Reds series

    The Indians are playing incredible. I watched Kazmir pitch the other day, and I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of a guy getting lit up in independant baseball, to starting for a playoff team in less than a year. What’s funny is the Angels are still paying him. What’s even funnier, the Angels gave up good talent to get him.

    Sean Rodriguez and ALEX TORRES? Where the hell did this guy come from. After Watching Rodney struggle for my Tigers, I was happy to see him go to the Angels. He goes there, and predictably, stinks there too. Then Tampa (of course) turns him into a lights out closer. After setting the record for ERA with at least 60 innings pitched, his record is close to being broken. Torres has a 0.27 ERA through 33 innings. He may not get to 60 innings pitched, but I’d have to wonder what the record is for 50 IP. 50 IP for a rookie?

    What’s even more impressive is the fact Yu Darvish struck out 10 of the first 11 batters he faced! That is purely insane and down right filthy! This is still above average to a mere mortal, but after that start, I’m surprised he didn’t get more than 4 K’s from the final 10 batters he faced. 66% KO ratio?! Unreal

    The above average comment is referring to the fact he cooled off to the tune of 4 K’s per every 10 batters faced, after the first 11
