I'm a Tigers fan, and Verlander is my favorite... and I missed him.

Excuse me while I go hang my head in shame.

You should be used to shame, being a Tigers fan and all.

Could be worse. Could be a Rangers, Astros, Padres or Indians fan. At least the Tigers have 2 World Series titles, and MLB's only Triple Crown & 30-game winners to show for the last 50 years.

At this point, it's probably Padres, Astros, Rangers, Tigers, and then Guardians as far as being a fan goes.

However, if you care about "ethics" or whatever, it's probably Padres, Rangers, Guardians, Tigers, and then Astros.

Also a Tigers fan who loved Verlander. However I was glad to see him traded. Whether or not the prospects ever work out at least he can compete for championship with the Astros. As long as he enters the Hall wearing a Tiger cap I am fine with him in Houston.

'T' SHOULD read "2012 AL Rookie of the Year and MVP"...stupid Triple Crown. Antiquated statistics in a modern statistical game cost Trout an EASY MVP win, but I digress...

got 'em all with 3:12 left. FYI, LaRussa also managed with the White Sox. And for Quisenberry, you might want to mention the time period he pitched in.

What difference does it make when he pitched? I saw the letter Q and Quisenberry was the only name that came to mind, period. Have the Royals had more than one Q named reliever who happens to be a submariner?

right - he remains the Royals' best-known reliever; he was a submariner; his name started with Q.

For some reason, my mind went straight to Rickey instead or Robinson. Shouldn't they both be right?

Would you accept knuckler for knuckleball? I usually go for shorter versions on these quizzes when there's an obvious one.

Haha, I feel you. I almost never do well with sports quizzes, so I initially felt good about myself for getting 12 answers correct. Still scored zero points, though =P

Even though I got almost half of the answers correct, I got zero points. I hang my head in shame. (Especially since I overlooked the question on La Russa, and I'm a die-hard Cardinals fan!)

Maaaaaan! I thought all they wanted for ERA was what the E stood for. I typed Earned about 20 times!
