Always A Tiger: All Star Break Edition

I’m running a bit late here this week on what I had planned because I’m, A: lazy, and B: um…lazy, but I still think I can fit everything in before the Tigers resume their regular season later this week. By Friday, I hope to have a complete report card on every player to take the field for Detroit this year. Before that, I’ll have my double top secret insider All-Star selections vs. those chosen by the fans. And today, I’ll give a look at those ex-Tigers that you may have forgotten about since they’re now wearing a new shirt. Boo! New shirt!

I’ll start with position players in order of at bats this year followed by pitchers in order of innings pitched. If I missed anyone…I don’t care. So…very…lazy. Here we go.

Position Player, Team, Avg, HR, RBI, OPS

Cody Ross, Fla, .282, 7, 46, .748

Aubrey Huff, SF, .295, 17, 54, .929

Carlos Pena, TB, .203, 18, 54, .737

Andres Torres, SF, .281, 7, 29, .861

Placido Polanco, Phi, .318, 5, 27, .782

Curtis Granderson, NYY, .240, 7, 24, .718

Ivan Rodriguez, Was, .296, 1, 27, .713

Omar Infante, Atl, .332, 2, 24, .762

Camryn Maybin, Fla, .225, 5, 19, .631

Matt Treanor, Tex, .228, 5, 23, .670

Edgar Renteria, SF, .299, 1, 13, .711

Gabe Kapler, TB, .221, 1, 12, .596

Marcus Thames, NYY, .294, 3, 13, .845

John McDonald, Tor, .231, 2, 6, .685

Matt Stairs, SD, .200, 2, 8, .661

Matt Joyce, TB, .175, 1, 5, .690

Dane Sardinha, Phi, .205, 2, 8, .712

Frank Catalanotto, NYM, .160, 0, 1, .392

Brad Ausmus, LAD, .250, 0, 0, .750

Brent Clevlen, Atl, .250, 0, 0, .750

Notes: Huff’s been a beast this year…about 7 months too late. I’m still holding out hope to see Pena hit under .200 with 30 jacks. That would rule. Torres is quite the late bloomer. Grander-who? Sounds familiar. Maybin appears to be a bust. Sardinha’s a prick. And Frank the Cat is probably retired. Godspeed, Frank.

Pitcher, Team, W-L, ERA

Edwin Jackson, Arz, 6-7, 4.92

Colby Lewis, Tex, 8-5, 3.33

Freddy Garcia, CWS, 9-3, 4.36

Nate Robertson, Fla, 6-7, 5.10

Brian Moehler, Hou, 1-4, 4.92

Francisco Cordero, Cin, 3-3, 4.20, 24 SV

Brandon Lyon, Hou, 5-3, 3.66, 1 SV

Kyle Farnsworth, KC, 2-0, 2.41

Chad Durbin, Phi, 0-1, 3.31

Fernando Rodney, LAA, 4-0, 3.57, 6 SV

Jair Jurrjens, Atl, 1-3, 5.40

Denny Bautista, SF, 2-0, 2.89

Jeff Weaver, LAD, 5-1, 3.54

Dontrelle Willis, Arz, 1-1, 6.85

Tim Byrdak, Hou, 1-0, 4.50

Luke French, Sea, 0-1, 6.39

Roman Colon, KC, 0-0, 18.00

Juan Rincon, Col, 0-0, 4.50

Notes: Congrats to EJax on the ugliest no-hitter of all time. Hey, Nate. I see you still suck. Keep up the good work. Lyon, we could really use about now. Farns, not so much. Willis is probably on suicide watch.

I didn't even know Andres Torres was still alive.
