2014 Fantasy Baseball: AL Breakout Starting Pitchers

Corey Kluber Evaluating pitchers is much harder than evaluating position players. In many ways, the four main fantasy categories are completely inadequate in truly pinpointing quality in pitching. Sure, ERA and strikeouts are pretty good. WHIP is a little more elusive because of the fielding element. I think we would all agree that wins are a complete joke as a statistic. Yet, fantasy...

Kluber Kontinues to Karve His Place into Tribe Record BooK; Indians 4, Astros 2

They grow up so fast. It was just two years ago Corey Kluber made his second start of his career. In his first two big league starts, he allowed nine runs. Houston’s Nick Tropeano made his second career start on Tuesday night and they should hope he matures as quickly as Kluber because two years later he’s carving his name into the Indians’ record book. Kluber struck out 14...

9/16 Recap: Kluber Sets New High & Moves Higher in the Record Books

Player of the Game While it wasn’t his best start of the season, tonight was the night that Corey Kluber struck out the most batters, impressive considering his already imposing K totals (more later). In addition to a career high 14 strike outs, Kluber threw seven innings and allowed just a single earned run, scored in the first inning. With the Indians almost assuredly out of...

Can Corey Kluber win the AL Cy Young?

Having the luxury of watching Corey Kluber pitch on a weekly basis has been one of the few fortunate occurrences of the 2014 MLB season. Kluber has endeared himself to Cleveland on the mound (where he’s been nearly unhittable) and off of it where he spearheads memes about teammates (Scott Atchison is so old…). And while Kluber has shown Cy Young qualities throughout the season...

Kluber, Indians pound Twins 8-2 in DH opener

CLEVELAND -- Before Thursday's first game of the Indians doubleheader against the Twins, Terry Francona talked about winning it "at all costs", which meant Corey Kluber taking the hill. For at least one game, everything went according to plan for Francona. Kluber went 8 1/3 innings while the offense pounded the Twins early en route to an 8-2 win on Thursday at Progressive...

9/11 Game 1 Recap: Offense Backs Up Kluber, He Returns Favor

Player of the Game Corey Kluber did more than his share of work in trying for a sweep of the double header today, pitching 8.1 innings and allowing just two runs. The first run scored in the first inning on a double and a single, then Kluber allowed just one more hit over the next six innings. He did allow three hits in the ninth, pushing him from the game after retiring just one...

Regression To The Mean To Describe Corey Kluber and Cody Allen

In their past two outings, both Corey Kluber and Cody Allen have been less than stellar; especially considering the high stakes.  However, it is a matter of mere perception and regression to the mean rather than deteriorating talent. The concept of regression towards the mean is important in fields far beyond baseball. Wikipedia provides this classic explanation: A class of students...

Corey Kluber extension could be tricky for Cleveland Indians

Corey Kluber has been one of the better overall stories in all of baseball this year. The Cleveland Indians currently sit five games back of the second Wild Card spot in the American League, and their emerging ace is a tremendous reason as to why (despite his stinker of a start on Monday). Kluber made 24 starts for the Tribe last year, his first full season as a starter in the...

Video: Corey Kluber auditions for ‘True Detective’

Cleveland Indians pitcher Corey Kluber has been seemingly unhittable since the All-Star break. The team's ace has posted a 0.76 ERA since the Midsummer Classic. But he also possesses another hidden talent that many fans and analysts alike may not know about—acting. Kluber is known for his stoic, all-business demeanor when on the mound, which has drawn comparisons to Rust...
