The Max Scherzer Report

by Bill Chuck on September 26, 2013

In the Tigers 1-0 AL Central clinching victory last night over the Minnesota Twins most likely gave Max Scherzer the final key he needed to lock up the 2013 AL Cy Young Award.

During a time in which wins are being minimized as a measure of efficacy, one still cannot ignore Scherzer’s outstanding 21-3 record.
