Doomed, Or, What's A Quality Start? Tigers 5, Angels 3
Nobody on this damn team can deliver a quality start. Part of that's on Scioscia, who left Lackey in with 113 pitches on his arm, but. Come. On.
As the legs decline, Figgins picks up new skills that help him beat the comps. Suddenly he leads the AL in runs, is third in walks, plays an elite third base. That's not Bip Roberts we're seeing. Does it matter if he steals ten fewer bags in the second or third year of a 3-4 year extension. What will Vlad's new skills be? Golf? Jenga?
