The only way we're going to beat the Tigers is with superior pitching.
No we wouldn't. Would have a decent chance to take a wild card spot? Sure. But we would not be favorites to do that over the #2 from the West or anyone in the East.
And if hindsight is 20/20, we paid Jake Peavy just about as much as Danks' entire contract to sit on the DL his first few years with the team.
