■ Congrats to Mizzou Soccer for their regular season Big 12 Championship!!!
MU in the Majors
■ Baseball stat-guru Bill James has great expectations for Max Scherzer (04-06) in 2010, according to FutureBacks.com:
Max Scherzer (Age 25): 30 G, 30 GS, 11-9 W/L, 3.80 ERA, 180 IP, 163 H, 16 HR, 194 K, 74 BB
■ FakeTeams.com also likes Max, based on his showing on a list of the top 25 K/9 pitchers in 2009, with their corresponding Ground Ball ratios. Scherzer ranks 11th in K/9, with 41.8% GB.
I will move onto another pitcher whose peripherals scream that he could come cheap in 2010 drafts. That name is Max Scherzer, and he is an intriguing name, as he struck out more than 9 batters per 9 innings, and induced ground balls at a 42% clip in 2009. His LOB% was pretty low in 2009, so I expect a very solid season from Scherzer in 2010.
