Thoughts after 7 innings Twins, Tigers Opening Day

- One of the worst aspects of the Tigers last season was their play at shortstop. It was minus eight defensively according to metrics with Andrew Romine and Eugenio Suarez. Jose Iglesias is a big upgrade. I am not saying he isn't. And I don't mind a little bit of flair, but does he have to do it on every grounder. Just sayin'.
- The good news is the Tigers have David Price and Yoenis Cespedes this season. They are both performing exceptionally well. The bad news is they are not signed past this year. It makes it even more imperative the Tigers come through in 2015.
- Just like last season, the Tigers are running a lot early this season. They didn't continue the trend as the season moved on '14 because they started getting thrown out with regularity trying to steal. They will continue to run this year, though, because they have much improved overall team speed.
