I remember when you mentioned that.

Anibal Sanchez has pitched outstanding for the Tigers this season.

11-7 with a 2.45 ERA (1st in AL) and a 41 BB to 152 K ratio. His 1.13 WHIP is 8th in the American League.

As for Justin Verlander, he's been very inconsistent this season. I think he's having issues with his mechanics, specifically his shoulder angle. It would be one thing if he were getting crushed all season, but he'll pitch outstanding in one start and then look average/below average in his next start. It's either concentration/focus or mechanics and I tend to think it's a mix of both, but he mentioned fixing a hitch in his shoulder angle, pitched well for a few starts and then went right back to his erratic up and down performances.
