Dontrelle Willis, child of the Marlins Diaspora, pitched 6 and 1/3 shutout innings last night against the Texas Rangers, notching his first win as a Tiger and igniting hopes that he can return to his once-dominant form. Few former Marlins can match Dontrelle's status as a Miami folk hero (as Peter Gammons once called him), and here's hoping this is the first of many more quality starts from the D-Train.
Apropos of this, allow me to suggest an analogy:
