If the Rangers and Rays manage to hang on to their slim leads in the AL Wild Card race, they will likely throw Yu Darvish and David Price on the mound for the Wild Card game.
Price was once the most feared pitcher in baseball, but now you could make a case that Darvish is the most dominant pitcher today.
Last year, Price was the AL Cy Young, while Darvish was a struggling rookie, posting an ERA just below 4.00.
However, the tables have turned this year, as Darvish leads MLB in strikeouts and could have been one of the top Cy Young candidates if he had avoided injury. Price, on the other hand, has struggled this year, going 8-8 with a 3.42 ERA.
Thinking about how much things have changed this year for these two pitchers and seeing them pitch for the chance to play in the ALDS makes for a fantastic matchup.
