It may not matter, seeing as he leads the National League over the past 14 days in Slugging Percentage and wOBA, while swatting 4 home runs and striking out only 4 times.

AL Pitcher of the Fortnight
Doug Fister, Tigers

the best acquisition of the year.
It's interesting how much we suffer from mainstream media's East Coast Bias, as expectations seem highest in New York and Boston, while the best rotations are in Detroit and Anaheim (Jered Weaver, Dan Haren, and Ervin Santana). Is it too early to expect a Tigers/Angels ALCS?
Honorable mention: Justin Verlander, C.J. Wilson, and Jered Weaver.
