Oakland Press: Could you see a Tigers starter in the All-Star Game for a second straight year? Scherzer you could

As great as Scherzer has been, I don’t think he’s even the most worthy All-Star starter on his own team (Sanchez is ahead of him in ERA, WAR, FIP and quality starts). But I find his perspective on the “win” stat, which seems to come straight out of his mother’s basement, very refreshing:

“That’s the thing — 7-0’s a nice thing, but I don’t really hang my hat on that. If I was 0-7, and still pitching well, giving my team a chance to win, I’d still be proud of it,” he said. “For me, it’s all about going out there, and making sure I’m going deep into games, keeping their offense down. I’ve been doing that for the most part this year.”

It is very easy to root for Max Scherzer.

So far, Sanchez leads all pitchers in fWAR. Max is 4, Verlander is 8, and Fister is 14. It's fun being a Tigers fan.

Most scherzered headline ever?
