- The race isn't over.

- It's not over? OK.

- It will go down to their last couple of starts, which is the next 10 days. I like Kluber. He's 10-1 since the All-Star break, and since July 4th he's had 147 K's. So quietly I know the big strikeout numbers are overwhelming. They will end up with the same amount of wins, but Kluber will have less losses for me and a better ERA.

That should be the tipping scale right there. 300 strikeout's are 300 strikeouts. Don't get me wrong. He's going to have 17, maybe 18, wins. But I think it's going to be a close two man race.

- You know what? I would ask you, except you predicted back in early August--

- Check the tape, baby!

[LAUGHTER]

- In fact--

- Roll the tape!

- we do have--

- Roll the tape!

- tape of him on Whip Around when discussing the subject back on the eighth of August.

- He's a starter in baseball, throwing up closer type strikeout numbers. So I think for me if we had to pick, even though I know a lot of people are going for Sale, if there is somebody that can make that race extremely close it's definitely Corey Kluber.

[EXCLAIMS]

- Check tape.

- I don't even know what to tell you! The eye in the sky never lies, yo!

- He thinks it's over.

- I'm telling you it's over. He has the buzz. He has the trophy. They're etching his name in it right now.

Kluber congratulations, my friend. So proud of you, bro. Another great sequel.

- I think it's a little closer than that, but we'll see. We'll see.

- I'm just saying. He--

- Maybe they're making two nameplates right now, but it's going to be a little closer than that.

- A little Indian's history there.

[INTERPOSING VOICES]

[LAUGHS]

- I love the guy!
