I have to send a big thank you to the Mariner front office for shipping pitchers Doug Fister and David Pauley to Detroit. Fister has a 3.33 ERA and Pauley's is 2.15! From the last post, you saw my sentiments about the lack of scoring behind Mariner pitchers. Fister ranked dead last in all of major league baseball for run support, with the Mariners scoring just 3.02 runs per game and has received just ten runs of support in his last ten starts. I bet he grinned from ear to ear when he heard he was headed to the division leading Motor City Kittys.
Pauley will help tighten up the Tiger's bullpen with his low ERA and opposing batters hitting just .200!
I am a happy camper with this deal.
But, will the Mariners ever get any better?
