sabbl-deconstructing the tigers' season

Ok, so it appears that the Tigers have played weeks 1-3. From somebody I need to know the player usage for series 3 and to confirm that the series was split 1-1; and having the actual scoresheets from series 1 would help to confirm some usage guesswork. (Query; I know I am the new guy to the league but why keep all the stats you are keeping and not keep games played if that is what usage is being limited by?) As best I can tell usage was as follows for weeks 1-2 combined ignoring those who can play in all 16 games; if anybody can confirm or deny please do so:
Casey 3 GP out of 6 available
Gomez 2 GP out of 3 available
infante 0 GP out of 7 available
polanco 4 gp out of 14 available
santiago all 3 gp out of 3 available? (11 PA after 2 weeks; 3 PA in 1 NYY series game so remaining 8PA would be 2 more games)
shelton 1 gp out of 11 available
stairs 1 gp out of 10 available
thames, wilson, and young all unused in first two weeks

starting rotation:
robertson or verlander (can anybody tell me which comes first in the rotation to date?)
verlander or robertson
(and if I understand no off days means I am stuck with that rotation unless I want to plug in spot starter to let me adjust it)

grilli 1 gp out of 7
jones 0 gp out of 7
ledezma 1 point used out of 6
maroth 0 points out of 6
miner 3.67 ip which could have been 1 or 2 relief appearances in the first series
rodney 1 gp out of 8
walker 0 gp out of 5
zumaya 4.67 ip which could have been 1 or 2 relief appearances in first series (normally I would say 2 for sure but since it appears verlander was injured or ejected from his start in the first inning I can't be sure)

Well, if people don't have the exact record of who pitched G1 vs G2, I'd just flip a coin and be done with it. I think the "injury" seen was a pitcher who 'lost his stuff' in an early inning and getting yanked.

In any case, I personally am willing to just handwave a few stats if the opposing managers can't provide the information. No need to spend lots of time on this, it's supposed to be fun.

That being said, if you have the info, please send it to Scott.

I'm pretty sure:

Verlander pitched Game 1 and "lost his stuff" in the second.
Zumaya's innings were one long relief appearance.
Miner has had two appearances.

the bigger issue is the stat questions from games 5/6; week 3. If Michael doesn't care that not having those answers might allow me to use a pitcher that rest doesn't allow then I can charge ahead; although I wouldn't want to get an ugly usage surprise later coming back to haunt me from that series if I can avoid it. I would love to be able to confirm the week 3 split as well. I am trying to schedule week 4 for Monday night but failing that some time the following week for that and week 5 should be no problem. Is there any way to track down the week 3 score sheets from Detroit?
