Great point.

"Average" is way better than the Tigers' 2014 shortstop situation.

When he strikes out two batters per inning, I'm not terribly inclined to care about Max's velocity.

Like when everyone c. 2011 was wondering why Leyland never called for David Pauley, even though he was pretty terrible for the Tigers.

Eh, he was already one of the highest-paid players in baseball. This is probably a "second week of April" type thing.

I know he's more valuable as a starter but I'm really going to miss having Smyly in the bullpen when he actually gets to make a start.

I wasn't recommending it, it's just the only way the pitcher's spot won't be leading off next inning.

Nah. Smyly would probably go multiple innings and the pitcher's spot is due next.

From the recap, it sounds like they were super aggressive and put the ball in play early in counts a lot today, which would account for a lot of the missed Ks.

Once the draft pick compensation becomes moot you can bet that more teams than just the Tigers will be interested.
