Flipper says this AM that, quoted in both the FREEP and Det News on-line editions, that he wants to see Amir be more consistent. That is just an excuse to keep from playing him with the Pistons. The problem is that because the Pistons have a chance to get to the Finals that Flipper wants the experienced guys playing. If the Pistons were like the the Tigers when Bonderman broke in then Amir would be starting just like Bonderman did. No way Bonderman starts for the Tigers this year if he was a rookie, just like Miller who is better than Bonderman at the same stage of development will be in the minors this year because the Tigers can win it all this year. Why doesn't Flip just speak the truth instead of the BS? What a toad!!
