Saw them last night/this morning for the first time this season, and was impressed (albeit they were playing the Royals...).

Pudge looks back to his best - definitely lost 20lbs+ in a couple of seasons, and I think I know why - and is wildly handsome without the tache.....

Verlander looks awesome - probably the quickest fastball of any current MLB starter, but got a great curveball too. Reminded me of a young, healthy and clean Doc Gooden.

Will they keep it going? Could be the year when the AL wild card won't be the Red Sox or Yankees.
