Jim Leyland summed up the Tigers pitching situation thusly: "Currently, there's a lot of chaos going on."
OK, so it's not KAOS, but we don't have an agent like 99 to bail us out, either. I see Vegas has put the over/under on Detroit's wins at 81.5. Baseball Prospectus projected 78.
Instinctively, I keep thinking the Tigers have to be better than .500 with the talent they have. Of course, that wasn't the case last year and the pitching trends coupled with an aging lineup leave little margin for error again in 2009.
