We all appreciate that the key goal in baseball is to score the most runs. Consequently, it's logical that if your team ranks worst in the league for pushing runners across the plate, you're probably not going to see successful results. In 2019, the Detroit Tigers proved this theory. The Tigers were the worst in Major League Baseball at scoring runs, and that translated to the worst won/loss record. During the 2020 shortened schedule, they improve slightly. However, Detroit only managed to inch their way out of baseball's basement, finishing third worst overall.

The Tigers put the ball in play with some regularity, hitting right at the league average .245 clip. But they had problems striking out in critical situations, plus the Tigers finished with the fourth worst run differential. Each of these stats collectively explains why Detroit was again one of the worst teams in the league. Tigers' fans should anticipate some exciting milestones in 2021. Miguel Cabrera will inch closer to 500 career home runs as the season continues to unfold. There may not be many more such exciting moments when the Tigers are at bat. The problems may arise when Detroit's opponents dig in the batter's box. Detroit has problems pushing runners across the plate, but the Tigers' pitchers had the third worst ERA in baseball last season. The Tigers hired a new manager in AJ Hinch, but they still could be hard-pressed to climb from baseball's bottom tier of teams.
