Max was the only 20 game winner in the majors this year, and also the only starting pitcher to allow less than 1 baserunner per inning. His 13 game winning streak to start the season was the best since Roger Clemens in 1986.
Baseball is also a secondary collegiate sport, but I think this is worthy of inclusion here as well.
Good for him. Strange the Tigers seem to be trying to trade him.
The other thing about B-Rush is that he never lied. Coach Self would be like, “Did everyone make curfew last night? If you didn’t make curfew, raise your hand.” All of us that broke curfew kept our hands down — except B-Rush. He’d raise his hand and tell on himself. Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.
