Al Alburquerque is Awesome!

Al Alburquerque is phenomenal.  The man returns from an arm injury he suffered during his rookie season in Detroit and has been lights out for the Tigers ever since.  He has a 0.00 ERA over 11.2 IP so far this season.  For his career he has 47 appearances, 55 IP, 6-1 record, 82 K, 1.47 ERA, 1.07 WHIP, and a 2.5 WAR (which is outstanding for a relief pitcher).

If the Tigers are able to capture the AL Central division championship, I'm sure Leyland will lean heavily on Alburquerque in the playoffs, especially since Jose Valverde has been faltering recently (or all season long).  Imagine a game where it goes either Verlander, Scherzer, or Fister to start, then to Alburquerque, then Benoit, then Valverde.  That's scary good!

The Tigers acquired Alburquerque in 2009 for Jeff Baker.  Gotta say, that was a steal.
