We was about 90-93 last year. I guys couldn't even swing at it. Filth.
Tigers get bit by the injury bug again: The Official Site of Major League Baseball: News: Major League Baseball News
Inconsistency in the pitching corps again...or in this case injuries to our arms forces... 7 game win streak in progress including a 12-1 three game shellacking of the Braves over the weekend only to come home and give up 17 runs in two losses to the Rangers??? The Tigers have the best road record in the majors at 27-15, but are struggling at Comerica with a 18-16 record. What gives?? Almost reminds me of the dudes up the road in Auburn Hills last year.
All about bullpen. Can't hold leads, can't get through the inning without giving up runs. The offense is not going to average 10 runs per game. Starters had been good enough to win games.
Should have kept Maroth and used him and Durbin in the bullpen and forget about Rodney and Grilli etc... The starters need to go at least seven innings instead of six as most of the leads are blown in the 7th and 8th innings. Rodney and Jones have about 9 losses between them and at least 5 blown saves...
Rodney is on DL. Maroth is a starter, he can't strike people out, so he'd be quite ineffective in bullpen. Byrdak was quite effective until last couple of games. I am not sure if there's an answer other than a trade. I think they should've tried to get bullpen help for Maroth, but I don't believe there was enough time to wait.
Maroth went 7 or 8 innings in his first start for Cards. Gave up one run.
Good thing a game was rained out today. Some extra rest won't hurt the Tigers. Double-header tomorrow.
Creamed 11 to 1 by Twinks. I bet we hammer them right back today. 10 to 2
With 3 losses in the last four games, looks like the Gambler (Rogers) is the only pitcher who can get anyone out....
Figuring on about 85 wins this season........Would like more, but that's still a good year.
The Tigers added another reliever to the mix of their depleted bullpen, acquiring right-hander Jose Capellan from the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday morning for Minor League left-hander Chris Cody. The 26-year-old Capellan has spent the past month in the Milwaukee bullpen after being promoted from the rotation at Triple-A Nashville. He's 0-2 with a 4.50 ERA in seven games for the Brewers, scattering 10 hits over 12 innings with six walks and eight strikeouts. Capellan was a key piece of the Brewers' relief corps in 2006, making 61 appearances and posting a 4-2 record with a 4.40 ERA. However, he was optioned out to Nashville at the end of Spring Training and requested a trade soon after. He was placed on the restricted list later in April after leaving the team for two days, but has had a clean record since. link: The Official Site of The Detroit Tigers: News: Detroit Tigers News
TIGERS CORNER: Uh-oh! Zumaya's return delayed
We finally got to see what Bondo can do if he gets through the first inning without troubles. A great game for him 8 innings 6 hits 7 K's with only 1 BB. Thames with the only run of the game on a solo HR. Jones with the surprisingly quick save. Tigers salvage one game against Twins.
Bonderman wants to win the internet ballot..........last to make the all-star team..................
We get Injuns next. Our turn to win the series. At home.
The problem is our home record is not championship material. (20-18) and we let the Twins and Rangers come into Comerica and take 4 out of six last week. The Indians are just a shade under .500 on the road, but are playing better ball pitching wise than we have been doing the past week other than Rogers and Bodermans's two recent gems. The Tigers have to take at least four out of six from the tribe and bosox to go into the Alstar break with some second half momentum and feeling good about themselves. Duplicating last weeks poor effort could put them in danger of relinquishing the wild card spot to the streaking Mariners by the break. (They are only 1 game back right now). Go Tigers
Interesting how the Mariners manager just quit after 35 years in baseball. And when the team was on an 8 game winning streak. Hopefully, they're not too affected..........
Yeah there is something going on here that is hidden. I wonder if there is an undisclosed health problem that is forcing him out.>??
Heard he recently bought a ranch in New Mexico. Him and his wife are driving there now.
