"He was terrific," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said of Smyly. "He really had good stuff. He pitched well, and he's very talented."

In reading the blogs and listening to sports radio, it appears many Yankee fans are calling for Brian Cashman’s head over the Michael Pineda debacle, while others fail to find fault on the GM’s part. In this election season, everyone loves a good debate so I will refrain from offering my opinion on the Pineda situation and, instead, comprise a list of Cashman’s starting pitching...
