I'm reading around several Tigers blogs, and it seems like the big question is, how do we upgrade the rotation? I'm on the get rid of Armando bandwagon, and I think the answer is Zach Miner. Think back to a couple years ago what he did as a starter in place of Maroth, and in starts since. He's been as solid as anyone, and a good middle reliever for us this year. I think the time has come to give him the ball and see if he can earn a spot. Which leaves the question of who can be the middle reliever, since Robertson has proven he can't handle it, and Miner is our only legitimate option there.
My friends, I have the answer, and you've already seen him. Lucas French, he did decent in his MLB debut, and he's posting solid numbers as a starter down in AAA... in fact, I'm not entirely against him being the starter, but with a pair of rookies already in the rotation I think we need to go with someone with starting experience. Miner brings that to the table, and I think Armando is running out of time fast, Miner is already here, still having success in his current role. Give him a shot, and bring in French for middle relief, option Armando down, or finally cut the money bleeding out of Robertson.
