No problem. My point is that, when they look back on 2020, the Tigers will have won more games than they should have based on player performance. And Gardy may likely get credit for that.
We've had a lot of really bad players this year. I mean, we're talking 1962 Mets here:
Alcantara - he's 2 for 19
Derek Hill - Still looking for his first hit.
Daz - he's 1 for 27
Demerite - got sent down today apparently. He was 5 for 29. He gets sent down but Derek and Daz stay up! These are tough choices for AA (shd be in sarcasm font)...
Rooftop Greiner -
Goodrum - The year he fell apart. Yes, G2, he should not hit LH
Stewart - Terrible but still better than the OF's above him on this list
Lugo - Best guy on this list so far?
Cabrera - pretty bad most of the time. Some say his exit velocity is OK. I'd like to see his exit velocity leaving town.
Schoop - Yeah, even this guy. 'Cause his career HR's exceed his career walks. Dude's a freak.
Nova - His last year. Awful. Terrible signing.
Zimmerman - Yeah. The dude held on. Pure greed. He's done. Don Drysdale retired in the middle of a year. Show some class, Jordy. Our pitching roster lists the starters and then the relievers and then Zim down there in his own category.
Big Joe - ERA's over 9 Joe.
RONY - RuleFive Of New York - fun acronym but his ERA's over 9.
Michael Fulmer - ouch. ERA's over 9.
Carson Fulmer - nice try by AA but the guy pitched awful
Dario Agrazal - made the team somehow but got hurt. May have had an ERA over 9 had he pitched.
That's 2/3 of a team roster of players who might not catch on with any other ML team next year (other than Cabrera, maybe Schoop). This is a historically bad roster. Small sample sizes? Yes. But the small samples were all bad. Since our record is not the worst in the league, Gardy might get some credit. I'm not saying he SHOULD. I'm saying he likely WILL.
