BTW, I also think Smyly should go for simply being the only reliever that Leyland ever seems to use. Dude's arm is going to fall off.
Did I mention Smyly before, or are you reading my thoughts? I have been lobbying on the Tigers forums for Smyly to get a nod. He is one of, if not the, best reliever in the game right now. He can go long, he can get one guy, he can setup and he can save. Problem is, they'll never pick him. It's a goddamn crime because he is the best.
Verlander is my favorite Tiger. I watched him grow up in this organization. He's scuffling right now, but he will ALWAYS be the Tigers' ace.
That said, Max has earned this year's start for the AL. Hands down. He ran away with it. The fucker has a better strike out rate than The Rocket when The Rocket went 12-0.
