Detroit Tigers Recap #3: Midseason

Reading Time: 4 minutesIn our last article, we summarized the first 15 games of the Tigers season, and we were quite impressed with Detroit starting out with a 9-6 record. However, they had a test to pass. Did they pass that test? It’s a complicated answer. After starting 9-6, Detroit started to struggle, and mightily. They went on an 8 game losing streak in combinations of games against the Chicago White Sox and the Cleveland Indians, where it seemed like our pitching could not get any worse as the Tigers had a team ERA of 7.375 during this stretch,...

What A Hypothetical Rockets vs. Nuggets Matchup Would Look Like

Reading Time: 3 minutesThe Houston Rockets and Denver Nuggets currently hold the 6th and 3rd seed in the Western Conference, (respectively) and a best-of-7 matchup between these two teams would be very interesting. This is primarily because of one reason. Height. The Houston Rockets would likely play their normal starting lineup of Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Eric Gordon, Robert Covington, and PJ Tucker. The tallest player in this starting lineup is Robert Covington at 6’7″, and their “center” PJ Tucker is 245 pounds, but only 6’5″. The Denver Nuggets, on the other hand, could theoretically run a lineup of...
