Well, the Indians might have broken my heart this season, the the A’s are still in it.
Griffin had an awesome 2012, going 7-1 with a 127 ERA+ and a 1.130 WHIP. In 2013 he managed to keep it up, with a 14-10 record, 3.83 ERA with a 97 ERA+ and a 1.125 WHIP. And that is over 200 innings, and only allowed 171 hits. The only real bad news is that he allowed a league leading 36 HR….but considering he strikes out a lot, does not walk too many…I can live with that.
This autograph was via consignment during the A’s last series in KC.
