Thoughts after 7 innings Dodgers, Tigers Wednesday
|Max Scherzer vs. Dodgers|
- The days of Matt Kemp being a truly great player appear to be over. Max Scherzer retired him remarkably easily to end the sixth inning with a runner on third. His OPS is under .800 and his WAR is minus 0.9. He has looked slow and lumbering in the field. Thing is, Kemp isn't even 30.
- It's been awhile since the Tigers' bullpen has been tested in a really close game. It will be today. Will it pass? I have to be honest, I'm not so sure. Scherzer threw 101 pitches through 7.
