That's right kids, Mike Maroth has lost his 20th game (sports.espn.go.com). Bonderman might get two more starts... think he'll lose 20? He could use the experience more than the not-really stain of having 20 in the L column, and you know he's not gonna be held out the whole year.

I heard today on the Dan Patrick show that Bonderman was pulled out of the rotation due to some sort of innings limit.

I think it's balls to pull Bonderman because of some pre-season innings cap. I don't think he'll wind up with 20 losses because the team is obviously concerned with saddling him with that distinction. Once he gets 19, I wouldn't be surprised if he were done for the year.

As for Maroth, congratulations to the man....if you're going to be epically bad, you might as well be historically bad. Look at it this way...if Kingman hadn't lost 20, how many people would remember him? Probably the same number of people who are going to remember Omar Daal twenty years from now. People will now always remember Mike Maroth, but odds are the Tigers will drop 121 so history will always provide him with a justification for his milestone.

Kingman was at the game but the voodoo doll didn't work this time... this was pretty bad too as Maroth had a death in the family or something...

Look on the bright side for Maroth. He was bad enough to lose 20 games, but good enough not to get pulled from the rotaiton. Remember, his ERA is better than that of Jeff Weaver...

And I don't think anyone ever tried to sell Mike Maroth on eBay.
