(Boston, MA) -- There were plenty of doubters amongst Tigers' fans back in March when last year's American League Cy Young award winner Max Scherzer turned down a six year extension with Detroit worth 144-million dollars. As the first third of the regular season begins to wind down, it looks as though Scherzer is in for a much larger pay day after the season. Scherzer, who will become a free agent after the end of this season, was remarkable once again Friday night against the Red Sox at Fenway park. He threw six innings of shutout baseball and only allowed three hits in the Tigers 1-0 win over Boston. Scherzer now has six wins and only one loss, and he leads the American League with the lowest earned run average.
