Know Thine Enemy: Bless You Boys
|2012 - Scott Diamond||12-8||25||25||1||1||0||0||160.2||173||72||65||16||30||86||3.64||1.26|
The only guy penciled in to next year's rotation, Diamond is tasked with peeing on the Detroit Tigers' campfire. As long as you can get comfortable with the idea of aiding and abetting the [expletive] White Sox, let's see what he can do in what looks like his last meaningful start of 2012. Detroit has a 2-game lead in the Central with six games left.
|2012 - Drew Smyly||4-3||21||17||0||0||0||0||93.1||90||49||44||12||30||89||4.24||1.29|
If you read Jon Marthaler's series preview, you'd know that Smyly is staring in place of the injured Max Scherzer. This looks to be the Twins' best spoilage chance this weekend.
