    That definitely falls into the bad loss category in my book.

    Quality start with only 3 ER and 10 Ks. Hand it off to Papa Grande and kiss the W goodbye. Looked like coach's pitch in the 9th.

    Leyland should have taken Valverde out after 24 pitches. Not sure what he was thinking.

    In ALL of baseball, here are the K leaders per 9 innings:

    1) Darvish: 12.7
    2) Sanchez: 11.3
    3) Verlander: 11.2
    4) Scherzer: 10.7

    That is ridiculous.


    In K/BB ratio, Fister is #5 in baseball. He's also #4 in HR avoidance. Yet strangely, for a guy with so much control, he leads all pitcher by a mile in batters hit by pitch with 12. That's more than 1 per start.


    By the way, this is the guy that is the biggest threat to Cabrera's triple crown repeat:
    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/01/sports/baseball/chris-davis-of-orioles-emerges-as-elite-slugger.html?_r=0

    His career numbers are nothing compared to what he's doing this year. Last year's HR's spiked for him, but that was the only sign of greatness to come.

    Another game, another loss by 2 runs or less. 4 in a row. Is this what we call a slump?? Cabrera has 12 home runs this month...he's not in a slump.

    Four great pitching performances by Porcello, Sanchez, Fister and tonight Scherzer and all we have to show for it is four losses. Two of the games were loss in the 11th inning, one in the ninth and one in the 7th. The bullpen lost three of the games and Sanchez fell apart in the seventh of his game.

    Let's hope June is better.

    I don't think all Fister's hit-by-pitches were because of a lack of a control. Good pitchers move the hitters off the play so they don't feel comfortable standing in the batter's box. A couple of free passes is a nice tradeoff of keeping guys off balance when they are at the plate.

    all i know or dont know is i will probably watch 150 or more games , 1st thru 9th inning, this year and i just cant keep getting caught up in 'how' this team loses. This is one of the rare teams in baseball that almost NEVER gets blown out thanks to our starting pitching. But instead of a 40-16 ball club , we are hovering around .500. There IS a reason for this and one day Mr Illich will figure it out,.

    Today's explosion is what is expected...have to hope that this is the shape of things to come. Four dingers in one inning, a grandy and the b2b2b is something that you rarely see...if ever.

    I remember the '84-'86 Tigers doing it a couple times.

    B 2 B 2 B 2 B has been done about 5 times it looks like.
