    I was wondering if anyone noticed the Tigs have 3 or 4 series in a row?
    A's, Yanks, M's. That's a start or fools gold.

    Tigers have already given up 10 runs in the first three innings today?? Good news is that they have already won this series, but they need to comeback and win this game to keep hope alive.

    Leyland trying to outduel Lloyd Carr in ineptness by sitting Pudge the day after he gets 4 hits, leaving Bondy in to long and then bringing in a rookie just brought up from Toledo with 2 men on and of course he gives up a 3 run dinger. I hope his parents weren't in attendance:)

    Well.......we lose 14-7. Bonderman starts and the Tigers give up 13 runs in the first 4 innings........Can't blame hitting today, can't blame the bull pen. Bondo needs to be sent to Toledo............

    Was not a good weekend for defense as relate to Detroit area teams...Tigers give up 20 runs in two games, Wolverines give 39 points in 3 quarters, Shock give up 98 points and now Lions give up 21 points in 10 minutes!!!

    :focus:

    Yeah the collapse of Bonderman in the second half has defined the Tigers demise. 10 starts, 1 win and I am sure the Tiger lost 8 of those starts.

    Story reporting Bondo's got a sore elbow.

    ESPN - M's dump Tigers with 13 runs in first four innings - MLB

    I left out the word "won".
    My proof read is Bondo like.

    Bondo 10-1 to 11-8
    Shouldn't his mph lowered if his elbow was getting progressively worse?

    Huge win over BJays and Halladay. Rogers is back. At least for a while.

    Tigers split twin bill, losing the first game by a touch down 13-6 as Durbin and a parade of Toledo Mudhen pitchers allow Rangers to tag them for seven homeruns.

    The top Tiger pitching prospect Jarjar blinks :starwars:pitched a dandy with help from the regular setup men and savers, Grilli, F-rod and TJ and Tigers win the night cap 4-1.

    So far a 6-3 home stand, but I think it is too late for the defending Al Chumps. Indians have gone 7-2 on their road trip and the Yankees have won 6 straight and the hour glass is running out of sand for the Tigers.:clock: Too many blown opportunities in August..:toilet:

    It sure does like it is too late. Now Grilli's been great last month or so, Pudge is warming up, so does Inge, finally. But where was it all when it mattered? Unfortunately, everyone is probably working towards the next year. And Jurrjens looks like a keeper. I actually like him more than Miller. But next year's starting pitching may be younger yet.

    Yankee pitchers have elbow problems, so it aint written in stone that they got the WCard. We have 2 series with Twinks coming up. Those should determine the Tigs fate. Win each series and that's the best we can do.

    I was thinking that our only hope was to catch the Yankees for the Wildcard. But, upon further review, we still have a chance at catching Cleveland... mainly because we have a head to head series with them coming up.

    So, assuming the Tigers sweep Cleveland (a big assumption), the following records in the remaining games would get the Tigers into the playoffs:

    Det/ Cle
    12-0/ 10-3
    11-1/ 9-4
    10-2/ 8-5
    9-3/ 7-6
    8-4/ 6-7

    And so on.

    So, the most realistic way for us to pull this out would be to sweep Cleveland and go 9-3 or 8-4 in the other 12 games. And of course, we would have to hope that they play about .500 baseball.

    Tiebreaker-
    My analysis above assumes that we win the tiebreaker. Here is why:

    If we sweep Cleveland, then we would tie for head to head record with them this year.

    So then, the 2nd tiebreaker would be the record within the division. We are both 3 games under .500 in the division, but if we sweep them, and they play about .500 in the other games, then we will surely win the tiebreaker.


    Conclusion-
    Basically, we can only lose about 4 more games, and have to sweep the Indians.

    If Tigs win the remainder of their games they should be in. That's how I look at it.

    You may as well not bother looking at it then.

    What I meant was if they win the games they'll make it, if not it is a tossup, not that I don't think they can make it if they don't win the rest of the games.

    It is just a shame how close we are with injuries all over the place. Such a tough sport to make the playoffs in.

    It sure is funny, considering that Bondo and Robertson could've had a few more decent games and we'd be right in it.

    It could come down to a playoff game with the Yanks. Baseball likes things like that.
    You know they will keep it interesting.
    If we just could've bolstered our pitching staff...why didn't they? Wasted the season if you ask me. It'll be 15 years before we sniff it again.
