Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
This week's Sportsman of the Week may surprise you in that you may not have heard of him. But Corey Kluber of the Cleveland Indians has quietly been putting together a second half worthy of Cy Young consideration. For this week, he went a cool 2-0, 0.67 ERA, and 17 K in 13 innings. Wins were over the New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds, both teams in contention. If you look at his season numbers, he's up to 13-6 (6 straight wins since his last loss on June 30) with a 2.46 ERA and 187 strikeouts. Those are Felix Hernandez type numbers. He was passed over for an All-Star berth, but will surely finish high in the Cy Young and may just push his Indians to the playoffs. A worthy Sportsman of the Week!
