haven't we learned anything from the yankees that paying a lot of money for all star hitters and ignoring your pitching isn't a good idea?

who woulda thunk that putting together a bunch of homerun hitters with no pitching wouldn't work.
The Tigers might kinda blow, but they also had the misfortune of running into a fucking buzzsaw known as the 2008 Chicago White Sox.

Tigers did it first. Remember that early 90s team with Cecil Fielder, Rob Deer, Mickey Tettleton, and Travis Fryman? With no pitching besides an aging Frank Tanana?

Well, I know Rob Deer was not. Oh yeah, and neither was Pete Imbruglia (who I forgot). Cecil Fielder was Japanese-grown. But yeah, Mickey Tettleton and Travis Fryman were home-grown.

Pete Imbruglia...Natalie's father?
Any relation to Pete Incaviglia?

And Cecil doesn't look terribly Japanese. He played with the Blue Jays before a couple of seasons in Japan, then returned to Motown.

I thought Tettleton came up with somebody else (A's maybe? I'm too lazy to look it up). They did have Trammell and Whitaker still, and they were home grown.

Those Tigers teams may have sucked d/t no pitching but they sure were fun to watch...

Anybody want a free Eric O'Flaherty? He's the shittiest reliever in baseball, but hey, John McClaren brings him in to blow every Mariners game, so he must have a winning personality!

Damn, you got me. And as for Cecil Fielder, he sucked before going to Japan, so technically, as a player he was grown in Japan.

I saw Field and McGwire hit balls out of Tiger's Stadium in the same game.
