Go Mr. Kluber!

 

It's time to initiate Klubot...

He needs to get that K% back up to 30%. It's down a whopping 7.2% from last season, but he's never been a strikeout machine.

Come on Kluber!  Hopefully you have overtaken your captor and will be out on the mound instead of that impostor from that last start.  ;)

JD Martinez out of the line-up tonight.  He hasn't had a day off in some time so it makes since they waited until they are playing in a NL park.  But I'd look for him in the OF the next two games with other Boston OFers getting a game off as he plays corner outfield in those games.

Last season was above anything Kluber had ever done before, so a drop in K's is not a shock.  Still, this is his lowest K-rate since becoming Klubot, and it's still somewhat surprising since K's are at an all-time high in MLB.

 

At the end of the day, it almost seems like nitpicking though given how good he is otherwise.  I'd be satisfied if everything remained on the current pace (Wins, Ratios, etc.), but obviously more K's would be appreciated.

 

The rise in K's last year really was a product of 2 amazing months.  Even if it's not as long of a run. maybe he has another in him.  We'll see, but in the meantime, keep doing what you've been doing, Mr. Kluber (minus last start of course).

Just saw a stat re: Scherzer

 

That double off scherzer was only the 3rd extra base hit by a pitcher off him in his career.  284 plate appearances.

Castillo looking sharp threw 3. Will his meltdown inning happen in the 5th or 6th?

Sox making scherzer work.  8 pitch ab to Devers (struckout but fouled off pitches), followed by 11 pitch AB by Holt.

 

Max with 72 pitches thru 3.
