    Yes, perhaps I gave Willingham more credit than due. Duensing better pick it up after the Tigers handed him his ass back.

    This infield for the Tigers looks familiar.

    Considering they didn't trade him because of the 3 year deal I wish it was a 1 year deal. I'm sure he'll be alright next year, but he's one injury away from batting .230 with 5 HR's the rest of his career. Been fun to watch but winning games this year doesn't matter.

    And here I thought Ramon Santiago was bad. It's amazing how well Detroit does at finding good-hit/no-field position players (Jackson excluded).

    The RBI statistic is still useless, it's what leads to them that possesses meaning. That hasn't changed.

    Theyre both important. When they start adding up how many reached first base at the end of the game rather than how many crossed home plate, I'll change my opinion.

    Laird double clutches almost every throw back to the pitcher. Drives me crazy.

    The do add up how often guys reach base and if it wasn't for those guys RBI's would be meaningless.

    They already do. They reside in Fantasyland/leagues...Rotoworld.

    Without Infante on 3rd that hit by Cabrera is a lazy single but he's gets ordained as an RBI machine and Infante is just the guy who happened upon the plate.

    Was that an assist for Mastro or Young?

    Jamey making several errors on routine plays lately. With the Plouffe error before, it's easy to see how making errors is demoralizing and deflating to a team. Carroll will hopefully the utility guy next season.

    Just because someone gets thrown out at the plate doesn't automatically mean it was wrong to send him.
