And then he got screwed in 2014 when he had 15 wins to Kluber's 18. Fexix had a lower ERA and WHIP. They were identical in IP and Kluber had 21 more K's.

It's too bad instant reply wasn't yet available on that day when Galarraga threw his one hitter. I wonder what ever happened to him. Jim Joyce has retired from umpiring.

OMG. I will give you NYPD Blue, but Beverly Hills Buntz was a horrible show. Perhaps the worst spinoff in the history of television.
