Tigers are off to a 2-0 and hes got 2 Ks in the 1st. Someone of his caliber doesnt have back to back starts like this, and he has a rubber arm, so he wont get serious arm injuries until hes on the wrong side of 35 barring something out of the blue. He will bounce back and be solid.

No. He was jumping in the air for a ball over his head.

I can't believe I drafted the only pitcher I thought was completely safe.

Tribe threatening in the second, game could have been broken open if it weren't for an excellent play Dirks made on a Gomes' rope.  Game tied 2-2, 1 out, first and third, Kipnis up.

His stuff looks crisp, his command is just off for whatever reason.  Cleveland's lineup is tough though.  They really see a lot of pitches and grind out at bats.

Verlander's leaving a lot of balls up in the hitting zone.

Good AB by Kipnis, Verlander finally got him on a fastball.

Asdrubal walk, bases loaded for Brantley! "started from the bottom now whole team's here"
