"All we can do is put him out there and hope the style of pitcher that he is starts showing up again."

Tigers 7, Nationals 4: Raburned. Another struggle for John Lannan.
John stunk, no sink: 4.1, 10 H, 7 R, 6 ER, 4 BB, 1 K, 1 HR, 104 pitches, 63 strikes. Here's hoping his elbow really is okay...just keep putting him out there?
