    If Jackson was back, we would have won that game. Garcia is centerfield is kind of scary.

    I don't think Fister holds any grudges towards his teammates. He can just do his job and hope the team keeps winning and eventually get him a few runs.

    We are doing fine, but you are right Bill, the injury to Jackson has probably cost us at least 3-4 games, both in the field and at the plate. Those 1-0 shutouts and 1 run losses could have gone the other way with Ajax, or the luck of the bat, but we will never know.

    Tigers win. Big win. Scherzer smoothly goes to 9-0 and Papa Too large holds it down. A Team win....My Boy, Tuiouisosoppo LOL is a bad man!

    Horrible strike call on Butler in the 9th. Got Valverde out of a bad situation.

    Meaningless stat time
    Good teams need to win in the late innings via either holding on for a victory or coming from behind to win in the 8th, 9th or extra inning. I know the Tigers have a losing record in extra innings and so far have only recorded 13 saves.

    Tigers radio announcer Dan Dickerson said tonight was the first time the Tigers had scored a run in the 8th inning in the past 18 games. That run was the winning run and you can say if they scored in the 8th inning of couple other games in the last 3 weeks, we may have had 3-4 more W's in the win column. Need some more late inning excitement at the plate instead of on the mound when Papa is scaring us with another save.

    Scherzer now the best pitcher in the American League.

    He'll be starting the all star game.

    It was a borderline pitch that just missed. He had been calling that pitch all night, though, if you watched the game.

    Offense has struggled on the road and that cost a few wins. This team should not be 14-17 on the road with the pitching and offensive players they have.

    Papa blows it and Verlander should smack him as soon as he comes into the dugout.

    Still don't know why you have to trot out the same guy in the ninth inning for three games in a row?? After all, didn't say Benoit had the day off...why can't papa have a day off. Drew Smyly threw 15 pitches and looked sharp retiring the two batters in the 8th.....this is why JL gets on my nerves with his I got to go with my closer BS...

    If the Tigers lose this game, Papa needs to left behind to take the bus back to Detroit. In fact, Leyland should take the same bus with him since he loves him so much....

    How many lives does Leyland have? This was a horrible loss. The entire team looks lifeless, especially on the road. Now 14-18 on the road in this crappy division.

    Get rid of Papa....and send Coke a Pepsi to chill out...

    The starters pitch near perfect games and in this series and we lose two of them 3-2....Once again no late inning run production by the Tiger bats and bad pitching in the late innings by our pitchers. .

    Jose the supposed closer has allowed 5 hrs in the last 6 games and the Tigers have lost three of them. It was the Tigers 4th loss this season when leading after 8.....

    I'll probably catch my first MLB game this weekend (depending on the weather) in Twins vs Tigers.

    Valverde will be released before All star Break..Count on it. I told yall last week he was toast.

    Did u see the ERA's of KC's bullpen? Thats why they can pull out games late.

    And PLEASE. no more stats on the Tigers great hitting. I may be a great dunker, but if I only average 8 pts a game,,I stink! (Deandre Jordan)

    Bad analogy because we are one of the highest scoring teams. I'd see your point if we had high batting averages but it didn't result in runs on the board.

    Here's a crazy stat from ESPN:
    This is the 5th time in his career that Justin Verlander has pitched at least 7 scoreless innings and got a no-decision. No other Tigers pitcher in the Live Ball era has more than 2 such career games.
