After I wrote my previous post, I came across this from ESPN's Jayson Stark regarding the Tigers: "And at some point this team has too many good hitters not to score."
You can read the full story here.
Again, I respectfully disagree with Mr. Stark. As an additional point, Detroit's team BABIP is .293, which ranks No. 13 in all of MLB, and to me means as a whole the team has not be unlucky at the plate. (The Braves and Orioles are tied for worst, at .263.)
