I've seen the question a lot "are the Tigers a better team without Prince Fielder"? The answer is a very hardy NO. We could have been but without Fister, Prince, Inglesis, and even Dirks we are not even close. Our bullpen still sucks even with Nathan, our back up catcher is worse, our shortstop is enimic (both of them), our third base situation is up in the air, and with an injury scare already with Sanchez who the heck will fill in the rotation?
I really liked the switch to the speed game but DD did not account for depth or a bullpen and that is adding to the other issues that keep popping up. I really hope that we can hang on till the trade deadline so we can make some moves to get us into the playoff's because right now, we don't look like a playoff team. Dave really dropped the ball in some key areas, IMO.
