Dude is bringing us through the playoffs.  His moxie at the front of the rotation is what Stressburg lacks.

Dig it.

Very impressive on so many different levels.

Seems like he's everything a fan wants in a player on his team.  He has the bulldog demeanor of Zimmerman on the field and the sense of fun of Gio off it.  What a great combination.

One could argue that he's underpaid.

Dig it.

Everything here is so clear, you can see it
And everything here is so real, you can feel it
And it's real, so real, so real, so real, so real, so real
Can you dig it
Whooo-oooh
I can dig it, he can dig it
She can dig it, we can dig it
They can dig it, you can dig it
Oh, let's dig it

I'm too lazy to figure out whether Sherzer and Burnett would face each other in the weekend series in late June, but if they do I hope it's the Saturday game  :D

I'll be there for Faddah's Day.   That would be a good day for the match up.

Is there any way he can pitch the 8th inning on days he doesn't start? :couch:

That's an awesome article. I love reading his philosophy on pitching and pitch selection, esp. that hypothetical AB vs Ted Williams.
