    If you had told me before the year that they would be hovering around 500 at this point, I would have assumed that: - Miggy was having a good season (wrong) - Zimm was healthy and contributing (wrong) - VMart was providing something of value (wrong) - Mahtook was doing well (wrong) - Machado was holding down 2B at least decently (wrong) - Fulmer was healthy and productive (wrong) The fact that none of the above players have provided plus value and they're performing decently is pretty amazing to me. What they have received from Martin, Hicks, Goodrum, Hardy, Coleman and Fiers has been just what the doctor ordered. Not great, but good enough.

    Hard to say....the opp is bad today of course, but the results were pretty good in terms of keeping guys off base and avoiding EBH. Zimm's LOB% is incredibly low at 61% this year, especially low considering that he's been striking out 9/9 so far. The norm is more in the 70% range. Normalize that and he'd have a decent ERA in the low-mid 4's instead of hovering around 5.

    Sorry, I meant so far this year, and the A- ball game I watched last week....and I saw the future too! 3 singles, 1 double, 0 BB, 4 Ks. Pretty good stuff today from Zimm.

    Zimms stuff and control seems pretty decent so far....with swinging strikes are up but not enough to sustain a 9k/9 average. If he could sharpen the slider and get the swinging strikes up from 9.7 to 10.5, he could sustain a 7.5 - 8.0 k/9 ratio and I think keep his r/9 in the low/mid 4 range. Not exciting but potentially effective.

    The Tigers Hitting Thread

    Given the level of hitting ability on this team, I'm thrilled with 9th or 10th in anything.
