In 2013, the Tigers used six different starting pitchers for the entire season. This year, that total was doubled when Randy Wolf took the hill back on August 22. Needless to say, this situation is hardly optimal. Of the 11 pitchers (besides Wolf) who have started at least one game this season, seven have posted an ERA of 4.99 or higher. While the bullpen has long been regarded as our Achilles' Heel, the starting rotation has literally been equally abysmal in 2015. Tigers starters have a cumulative ERA of 4.61 and Tigers relievers have a cumulative ERA of ... 4.61!
While this situation has made for a miserable season -- and lately, the offense hasn't helped -- a quiz opportunity has arose from the woes of the 2015 Tigers. Our own Hookslide has become the first BYB'er (besides me) to create a quiz for use in this series.
