Fifteen games is a small sample in any terms, and particularly for the application of the Pythagorean formula, but even so, with 40 runs scored and 49 allowed, Pythagoras says that the Tigers should be 6-9.  Two games better than the expectation after only 15 games is a lot, and suggests what most if not all of us probably already know: the Tigers' 8-7 record is a fluke, and metaphorically, winter is coming. 

Or Ron Gardenhire is better than you think.  He uses analytics, ya'll.

Does Lloyd preach launch angles at all?  This team rarely sees the outfield, let alone the warning track, or even loud foul balls.

Now 4 or less in 15 or the first 17 games.  They still have only 7 home runs, and are on pace for a team total of 428 runs for the entire year.

They are slowly getting out of small sample size and starting to get into brutally bad offense.

I can't believe that Castellanos, Cabrera and Candelario have combined for zero home runs and 8 RBI total through 17 games.  That is awful.  He**, Chris Davis has 6 RBI and a HR this year himself.

At what point does something change in the line up, the hitting coach?  Not that it really matters, we all know this team is built to lose, but i don;t think we expected them to pitch so well.  Any other team with this early pitching would be about 11-6 or thereabouts.

This squad is somehow 8-9, based off his offense it could easily be 4-13 or something like that.

if you add lift to your swing but don't see the ball well all you will do is hit the top half....and ground out. You have to be able to hit it before you can control where you hit it. The Tigers are not at A yet, expecting B is pure hope.

Yeah, but just look at all the swell prospects we landed by trading away our best talent. 💤

Factor in the premium free agents we signed -- Moore, Beckham, Harrison, and Mercer -- and it seems like we should be danm near impossible to beat.
