    You mentioned Delmon only hit .235 in 34 AB in the playoffs but the flip side is he had what? 5 HR’s in those same 34 AB’s… just sayin’… That can be interpreted as “clutch.”

      John, what stat does clutch play the biggest role in? For me, that answer would be BA w/ RISP. I already stated that Young is a career .315 hitter w/ RISP, so you are only helping my case here. The only reason I brought up his playoff BA was to add it to his regular season BA to get an overall BA with the team. But If you want to bring up his homeruns in the playoffs, we can do that. That only raises his HR rate, which I already stated is going to go down. So you are only helping my case there as well. My apologies sir, but I just do not understand the point you are trying to make.

    I also forgot a key stat that I want to make a regular one when I do these – Games Played. For Delmon, I’m calling 143 GP.

    The trouble with the Tigers this year is they have too many potential DHs because of their defensive liiabilities. This shouldn’t prevent them from making the playoffs, but it might be trouble once there.

      This is true and Jim is going to plug em in as best as he can. But it is very apparent we are going to win or lose games in the box and not in the field. Our best defense is a good offense this year. The mentality is obviously to out slug everybody and hope our pitching keeps us in it enough.
