check out Milllies ERA since the all star break 2.95 in last month for you lazy ones out there.
Westbrook scares me, very inconsistent, but Lee, Elarton, CC, and Milly are solid. The bullpen is awesome,what a turnaround in 1 year. sure wickman makes saves interesting, but he get gets saves, and have you seen F Cabrera, our new set up guy (K Rod- anyone)??? The Tribe has an EASY schedule KC,DET,TOR one more game away game than home games the rest of way, which is good since they play better on the road. 3rd best road record.
,
It will come down to the tribe, or yankees before the A's.

the A's starters are good, yeah, but A's fans are living in the past. Zito's era has been 3.80 last month, he's not the 2.00 era #1 pitcher you remember.
Put your Dan Johnson saddles away, cuz You cant ride dan johnson to the promised land.


The Indians are going to see just how easy Toronto is. :-D

bring on those hot bluejays who have lost 4 in a row!!!

Dont take offense, I'm not ranking the BJ's with Detroit or KC, they are .500 team which is respectable, just not a team you look at on the schedule and dread playing

another save wicky style!!!

if wickman doesnt get that grounder up the middle, the rays win!

But the athlete in Wickman would not be denied!

Wickman's non balk call lit up Pinella, gotta love his rantings.come on, That was worth a cap kicking show Lou!

Gotta watch out for the Twins, very emotional win tonight!

It's going to be hard for the other WC teams to compete with a Johan led team as it looks like he found his groove. Keep in mind the Twins also have Baker, Liriano, and Bowyer to play with in September, that folks is going to be one sick pitching roster...

Whats the biggest lead ever blown in August by a division leader? The White Sox are really struggling and have like 16 or so CLE/MIN games left.... it could get interesting

Are they finally going to call these guys up? Baker I can understand since he's already been up, but Lirano? It would be great if they were called up but I'm not sure if it will happen...

They'll get called up, however the chances of them starting are probably low. Loshe is outpreforming all expectations and is probably saving the Twins from needing to rely on Fransisco.

That's great news. Liriano will definitely be worth a waiver and I'll be excited to use it on him! ;-D

Some AAA numbers to chew on

Liriano 8-1 1.59 93/79 K/IP
Baker 5-8 3.03 102-127 k/IP
Bowyer 22 Saves 2.84 ERA 87/66 K/IP
Boof = 156 k's in 149 IPs

Now if they could of only traded some MLB arms for some bats and got these youngsters in there!!!!

I don't know if I'd use a #1 waiver on Liriano, unless he gets the starting nod from day one of his call up. Remembered how they handled Johan and how successful it was in his route to an elite pitcher.
