Leyland offered up his support to the Inge on the All Star team campaign. If he said it publicly he probably said it to Joe Maddon as well (Maddon only has 8 picks at his discretion and many of those go to insuring every team has a rep).
Lee looks at how lucky the Tigers were to have a winning month despite being outscored. Their last 6 wins have been by 1 or 2 runs, and going farther back, it's 11 of their last 15 wins. It isn't a sustainable pace, but the good news is they picked up wins when not playing particularly well.
Vince in MN Yup, they definitely won't be running away with it like the last couple of years.
StorminNorman$ ...for the record, and if DD would have checked with me - I'd have signed Melky Cabrera and hung on
The approx. 75-80 games against AL Central teams will be more difficult for DET this year...as opposed to the past
Vince in MN Don Kelly is available, and he can pitch relief too.
Vince in MN Factor in that Simon is a NL pitcher and the WHIP is a wash. We'll see how this pans out
Only Tiger Fan in Mississippi Poor Little Ricky...now a Red Sox...what's next, him rooming with Kevin Youkilis???
Perhaps the Tigers must have some rapidly emerging plans
...could be an upgrade (over Porcello) - '14 WHIP = Simon 1.207 vs Porcello 1.231
