|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.|
|They're 14-4 against the Twins and Indians, meaning they are 20-27 against everyone else.
|Hey, it's a three-game winning streak. You can feel good about this team again, Detroit! |
|A good version of Justin Verlander would go a long way in stabilizing things, but the offensive inconsistency is a growing concern. |
|Anibal Sanchez has given up at least five earned runs in half of his starts. He's coughed up at least seven in three of his 10 outings.
