Again, not saying the Tigers don't have their share of problems, but to say they're even with the Sox is crazy. We currently have holes at 2B, 3B, and C. We have major questions at 1B, our everyday DH, and arguably SS and CF, as well.
That's not a good way to measure the importance of IF defense. Who's to say they wouldn't have won 98 games w/a good IF defense? And bad D shows up a lot more than just unearned runs allowed. Had they lost the division to us, their terrible D would have been the reason why.

And, yes, they are still better than us on paper, I'm not arguing that. And maybe our flaws are in areas harder to resolve, but the amount of holes are about equal.
