saw 2018 schedule is out. next year is my favorite of the interleague years as it's east vs east, central vs central, and west vs west.

All 30 teams start on same day next year. pretty cool.
[/qu2-

2018 looks like a great season. I don't believe all 30 starting on the same day has ever happened before

it's not happened with 30- last time everyone opened on the same day was 50 years ago- 1968 season. With only 20 teams.

RE: 2017 MLB Season Thread
well Kluber definitely not making it easy on Sale.... A CG shutout tonight with 0 walks and 8 k's.

Kluber now 16-4 with a 2.44 ERA.
Sale by comparison is 16-7 with a 2.76 ERA.

the innings lead is down to only 11 now. Kluber now with 5 CG and 3 shutouts.

Kluber now since 6/1 is 13-2 with a 1.77 ERA. 202/21 k/bb ratio.

since this post....
Kluber 9-1 1.93 84 IP
Sale 4-3 3.48 54.1 IP

when 1 of your biggest things is an IP lead, you don't have much. No Cy Young race is ever over in July, no matter who it is. Sale's pitched pretty well, but had his typical poor last third of the season. Kluber has taken advantage of it.

Oh, and looked at the tracker today and lo and behold, Kluber is #1 in both TT and BJ's trackers. Sale may have 1 extra start left but that would be on final day of the season. Kluber has a huge advantage I think in opponents left. Kluber has KC, @ Sea, and CWS. Sale has @ TB, @ Bal, and Tor. He is scheduled also for 10/1 vs Houston, but that's final day of the season where he would be allowed to go at most 3-4 innings you would think, as game 1 of the LCS is only 4 days later- and Sale's the last guy in the world that you'll see starting on short rest.

I think Kluber probably has the award at this point.

just asked Dave Cameron on FG in his chat who the favorite is now for the AL Cy Young. He said Kluber- Narrative + ERA probably gives Kluber the edge. Thought that was pretty interesting.

RE: 2017 MLB Season Thread
so Scherzer got lit up bad last night..... really makes things interesting....

contenders-
Scherzer 14-6 2.59 184.1 IP
Kershaw 17-3 2.12 157 IP
Gonzalez 14-7 2.68 184.2 IP
Greinke 16-6 2.99 186.1 IP
Strasburg 13-4 2.64 156.2 IP

looking at the tracker-
1 Scherzer 77.8
2 Kershaw 77.3
3 Gonzalez 68.4
4 Greinke 67.2
5 Strasburg 63.5

The sleeper to me in these is Strasburg. He goes out and has a great start next time out he's going to make up a lot of ground. I think the award goes to 1 of 3 guys- Scherzer, Kershaw, or Strasburg.

RE: 2017 MLB Season Thread
saw on BR that this year has already broken a MLB all time record with 750 pitchers used so far this season. It's the 5th straight year that the record has been broken. Before these 5 years- most pitchers ever was 666 set back in 2007. So 84 more than that year even. Since 1st year with 30 teams(1998) the number of pitchers has gone up by about 25%(from 600-750 now).

RE: 2017 MLB Season Thread
looking more at the '18 schedule-
they could probably do the little league tie in thing again pretty easily.... lookin at that weekend
Baltimore @ Cleveland
Miami @ Washington
Mets @ Philadelphia

Imagine how crazy the little leaguers would be if it's Stanton/Harper? With Strasburg or Scherzer pitching?

RE: 2017 MLB Season Thread
it's funny- saw the stat that might be the absolute craziest with regards to Sale that would be a stat that if I was pushing for Sale I'd be using quite a bit.

Since Memorial Day, he's had only 6 starts at home. Those 6 were against- Detroit(back in June before they got bad), Minnesota, Yankees, Cleveland, Yankees, and Tampa. Kluber by comparison has had 12 starts at home. Given just in MLB this year- home ERA is 4.16 while away ERA is 4.60- I'd say that's a pretty big thing.

While Sale is pretty close to the same pitcher home and away (2.81 home, 2.72 away)- Kluber is not. He's 1.93 home and 3.07 away. Since June 1- Kluber home 1.31 away 2.48.

Now, I don't think it'll matter to the voters- they don't dive that deep. But you can make the case for sure. Oh and BTW- of Sale's 3 likely remaining starts(not counting last day of season)- 2 of the 3 are on the road. And 2 of 3 of Klubers remaining starts are at home.

1 thing that will be interesting is how the 21 game winning streak that the Indians are on will influence the voters. It's literally something we've never seen before.
