Thames is an upgrade over Young in my opinion anyways. He just got screwed over on playing time in a crowded outfield and would be starting on most all teams.
Really. Rogers has his picture in the dictionary next to the word "choker" (right next to the picture of Arod). Robertson is up and down and has been more down than up in the second half. Verlander is a rookie with no playoff experience. Add in an offense that at the very best is mediocre. They have not fared all that well against the Yankees or many of the top AL teams and have really beaten up on the scrubs of the AL and the NL. Nothing wrong with that, but Detroit is not scaring anyone for the playoffs imo. I would be surprised if they got out of the first round.
