Fun Facts About the Tigers Pitching Staff

It has been quite a roller coaster ride this post-season and a few fun facts sum it all up:

(1) The Tigers starting rotation has a 1.10 ERA. 

(2) Jose Valverde has allowed 7 earned runs in 2 2/3 IP..  The starting four has allowed 5 ER in 41 IP.

(3) The only Tigers pitcher who has allowed an earned run in the last three games is Valverde.

I  got the impression from the press conference after the game last night that Valverde is definitely out of the closer's role and perhaps done pitching as a Tiger.  Jim Leyland made no excuses for Valverde or for himself and said that he would discuss the situation with his staff after the game.  I think Octavio Dotel is the new closer.
