I know Kenny Rogers was ridden out of town on a Channel 4 camera truss more or less, but I do miss the guy. So it was nice to see an article talking about Kenny in Detroit. I had this bookmarked, but never found the time to read it now. So head over to ESPN for this article by Jayson Stark on Kenny’s year in Detroit.
For the record, this season (as I write this), Kenny’s record is 10-3 with a 3.17 ERA in 15 games. He’s tossed 99.1 innings, given up 87 hits, on 22 walks and 57 stikeouts. And we’re not to the All Star break yet. So he’s having a great year. Good for him. That 2yr/$16 mil contract he got from Detroit doesn’t seem so dumb now. There is a cool quote from the Stark article which I didn’t realize.
The ace of the Detroit Tigers has virtually an identical career record (198-134) to Curt Schilling (201-133). But who out there has noticed that, either?
