When it comes to Detroit Lions‘ quarterback Matthew Stafford, either you love him and think he can lead the team to the promised land if surrounded with the proper talent, or you think he is worthless and put the majority of the Lions’ failures squarely on his shoulders.

With the Lions’ struggles in 2018, a growing number of Stafford haters began to talk about trading him as soon as possible.

For those of us with a brain, we know there is no chance that Stafford is going anywhere. Not this year. Not next year.

But to be honest, it really does not matter what any of us think. It only matters what Lions’ general manager Bob Quinn thinks.

Well, on his season-ending press conference on Friday, Quinn made his feelings on Stafford very clear, so listen up.

“Matthew Stafford is our quarterback, he will be our quarterback here. This guy is a very talented player. Myself and our coaches need to put him in better situations to allow him to use his skill set. Matthew is extremely tough and extremely diligent in his work ethic. He sets a great example for all of our players, and really all of our staff, of how to go about his job.”

BREAKING: Detroit Tigers’ pitcher to miss remainder of Season

Published

on

Matt Moore’s surgery was a success, but he will miss the season.

Moore was off to a promising (if short) start with the Tigers. He threw nine and two-thirds scoreless innings before hurting his knee fielding a come-backer against the Kansas City Royals on April 6th. Moore finished the inning allowing no runs but couldn’t come back.

Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire confirmed the prognosis:

This is not the first injury in Moore’s (30) career. After an exciting early career with the Tampa Bay Rays, Moore had Tommy John surgery in 2015. He had previously injured the same knee as well.

Moore signed a one-year $2.5 million deal with the Tigers during the offseason. Now he will spend the rest of that year on the IL.

In terms of WAR, the Detroit Tigers have the best pitcher in baseball

Published

on

Despite a decent start, the chances of the Detroit Tigers contending for anything in 2019 is pretty slim as their current roster just does not match up to the talent around the league.

Rather than basing success off of wins and losses, it is important to look at the individual growth of some of the individual players on the team.

One of those players is starting pitcher, Matthew Boyd.

Boyd, who is 28, is off to a great start so far in 2019 as he is 1-1 with a 2.96 ERA. What is really impressive is that he has the No. 2 strikeout rate (13.32 per 9) in all of Major League Baseball, trailing only Jacob DeGrom of the New York Mets.

In addition, for those of you into advanced stats, Boyd leads all Major League Baseball pitchers with a 1.2 WAR (Wins above replacement) threw his first four starts of the season.

The chances of Boyd keeping up this pace are not very good, but if he can continue to pitch well, you can bet teams in contention will be calling the Tigers as the trade deadline approaches.
