I think Scherzer breaks out this year in big way. He had some very dominant outings last year- if I remember correctly he got hit around at home, but he was pretty good for a guy learning how to start.
Scherzer had pitch count efficiency issues- lots of pitches, lots of walks, but when he was on he was awesome- one of the Brewer pitchers even commented about how nasty his stuff was after facing him.
I like the guy to be really good this year.
And Curtis Granderson just took a one way ticket off my favorite player list. Gosh, a lefty that kills righties...in Yankee stadium.
They are going to score a billion runs.
