Note that the “ace” of the Tigers’ staff that year (after Jeff Weaver was traded) was tonight’s Pirates starter. Adam Bernero was a swingman, and was horrible. Greisinger, when he pitched, was almost exactly as bad.
“Hitters” for that team included Robert Fick (the token All-Star), George Lombard, and Randall Simon.
They lost 106 games. And things would get worse.
