Over the years, I’ve watched quite a few Marlins games, so I’ve probably seen more of Anibal Sanchez than the average Tigers fan, although I have not seen a lot of him this year. However, since this trade first happened, I’ve had a tough time describing him. He’s not flashy, but he generally gets the [...]
Anibal Sanchez debuts for the Tigers on Saturday, which is today. His FIP is 23rd in baseball, at 3.41. Henderson Alvarez, the Blue Jays starter has an FIP of 5.30, which is the 5th worst in baseball. So, the Tigers should win, right? Right?
