    Memo to Mr. Leyland

    Do not ever, as in never, use Benoit for the rest of these playoffs.

    Thank you in advance.

    Use Scherzer? We don't have much...... Maybe Veras or Smyly but I have no faith in Porcello. Just praying for a game 5 victory...

    Would be cool if we could sign Kimbrel to a 3 week contract.

    It could be argued that Benoit has been Detroit's MVP this season. He's basically single-handedly stabilized the bullpen and had a hell of a first year as closer given he's never been in that role before.

    He struggled last night, but it happens -- especially when guys come into games with "comfortable" leads. Benoit is no Kimbrel, but he's the best thing the Tigers have going for them in their beleaguered pen.
