Shortstop - The Under-Appreciated Glamour Boys of '19

Motor City Madness - Can Detroit's Starters Keep Up Their Hot Start?

While the Mariners have gotten most of the attention as the "tanking team that is actually good", the Detroit Tigers have shown glimpses of being better than advertised this season as well.
