Some fun facts and trivia.
I am bored and tonight's game is later than usual. So I thought I'd have a little fun with the Tigers roster and ask you all some fun little trivia questions.
You will be graded, of course, because I'm a mod and that's what I do around here. ;)
No, really, just have a little fun, see what you come up with and I'll share the answers later.
1. The Tigers have used 11 different starting pitchers this season. Who are they?
2. Out of those 11 starters, only one (!!) has remained in the rotation the entire season (meaning he wasn't a call-up/spot starter/injury replacement or he hasn't spent time on the disabled list), who is it? (This should be fairly easy)
3. There are five players who were on the Opening Day roster who are no longer with the team, can you name them? edit: there may actually only be four, depends on your definition of no longer on the team ;)
4. How many players have the Tigers used this season that were NOT on the Opening Day roster? Name as many as you can.
5. How many Tigers have been on the disabled list this year (not including Campusano and Giarratano)? Name as many as you can.
6. Not counting Rick Porcello and the most recent addition to the Tigers 40-man roster, Clay Rapada, how many members of the Tigers 40-man roster have NOT been used by the Tigers this season? And who are they? edit: I forgot to mention that Wilson, Giarratano and Campusano do not count because they are not technically on the 40-man roster
7. Which Tiger has played the most games? And how many games has he played? Which Tiger has played the least amount of games (Hint: It will be, after tonight, a tie between three pitchers)?
8. Which pitcher has been in the most games and how many? And which starter has started the most games and how many? edit: There are actually two starters tied although I'm still trying to figure out how
9. Which position (1B, 2B, SS, 3B, RF, CF, LF) has used the most different starters? How many and who were the players?
Fun bonus question! There have been 8 pitchers whose names begin with the letter J on the Tigers this year. All but 2 have different names. Can you name those 8 pitchers? (Please note: this includes those not currently on the team as well) edit: It has also come to my attention that Macay McBride's real first name is Joseph, I wasn't thinking of him so really there are 9 pitchers
Also, who is the oldest Tiger and who is the youngest Tiger?
edit number 2: I'll post the answers to these questions just before the game tonight. Also, I purposely left out a player to answer number four. I did that because I'm curious to see if anyone caught him. So far no one has. This is probably because most people don't really remember the Opening Day roster.
