Rays Help Out Verlander’s Cause

One advantage of being self employed is what you’re able to do at work.  Right now, I’m watching the Rays dismantle Zach Greinke.  It’s a tough call right now between Greinke (he only has ten wins and that won’t help with the voters who have a hard time looking past this) and Verlander and a few others for the Cy Young and this game could help tip things towards Verlander for the moment at least as far as this matchup.  Of course that means Verlander will have to follow through and pitch a good game tonight.

Verlander is on pace for around 250 strikeouts this season.  If he got there, he’d be the first Tiger since Mickey Lolich in 1972 to hit the milestone.  Only three Tigers have done it. Lolich struck out 250 or more three times and Denny McLain and Hal Newshouser each did it once.
