Jimenez vs. everyone else: 140 innings pitched, 7-13, 5.53 ERA, 117 K, 71 BB.
I don't get it any more than you do.
Meanwhile, Fister didn't look 100% healthy during his last start, but hopefully another turn through the rotation provided the rest he needs to regain his late-July form. Still, he was able to get the job done in a pivotal game against the Chicago White Sox, and he'll be called on to do the same today to avoid a sweep at the hands of the bumbling Indians.
Please just win.
