Power Rankings
We haven't seen the Tigers finish below .500 since 2008, when they finished 14 under. This ballclub might be worse than that before the dust settles.
J.D. Martinez was released 17 months ago. Now he's one of the better power hitters in all of baseball. Remarkable.
Only Phil Hughes has allowed as many home runs this season as Anibal Sanchez's 28. Sanchez only allowed four all last season (injuries held him to 21 starts, but he's still only made 24 so far this year).
With a mediocre wild card crop -- at least before they traded David Price to the Blue Jays -- I didn't understand throwing in the towel at all. They have so much payroll committed to this window of contention, what was the harm in trying to make up a mere three games?
They are awful right now, but look at what is below. Further down just didn't feel right (yet?).
If Shane Greene gets any more starts, I think it's safe to say they are going into selling mode, right?
This range in the rankings contains several teams with great talent who have looked awful for a little bit.
They've been a sub-par team since that scorching 11-2 start, and now have to deal with an offense missing Miguel Cabrera for a while. This is the danger zone.
J.D. Martinez has 10 homers in his last 14 games and seven in his last seven. It's streaks like these where we can break out the ol' "he's in a zone" parlance.
Victor Martinez's power year last season was an outlier, but it's not unreasonable to expect him to hit like he did in 2013 the rest of the way in 2015. He looks much better since his last DL stint.
