That headline looks gooder than a bitch. The Cy Young is all but wrapped up. We’ve turned out attention to bigger awards.
Not a great outing by his standards today. 5.0 innings, 10 strikeouts, 1 earned run. Normal pitchers would kill for those numbers. Beibs has struck out double digits in 6 of 9 outings. Nice.
