I don't know if Bumgarner can keep up the pace he has had the last 3 years, but if he does and can maintain as a top ace I think he would be in the same conversation as Bob Gibson or Warren Spahn. In the age of specialties it is nice to see any players that can at least be worth talking about defensively as well as offensively for any position.

Thanks for straightening the 'stache out, Ray.

I can't straighten the 'stache out, it's up to the Russian now.

2 for Odor, too - 1 for each horse. Fortunately for me, he earned his 2 horses, and then quieted down. Indians with the nice comeback! Roll Tribe!
