    Same old story...Tigers play Angels, Angels beat Tigers. JL over thinks the decision to pull Alvarez in the 6th and the Aybar tags him for a two run dinger. Smyly loses it in the inning and the roof caves in.
    Next loss tomorrow and we are done with them until next season.
    Torii Hunter has not won vs his old team all year.
    Mike Trout gets the best of last years MVP winner again driving in 3 runs and the Angels six pitchers hold the Tigers to 4 runs.

    Smyly finally gets tagged. He was on a great stretch.

    Tigers come into the series riding a 3-1 series win vs the east leading BoSox only to get swept by a team 10 games under .500. Angels sweep the season series 6-0 and each time they faced the Tigers they limped in.

    Tiger big guns failed to deliver in the late innings and fail again to deliver for run starved Doug Fister who held the Angels to 1 run before yielding the the bull pen. Al-Al and Benoit each pitched an inning, but once the game went into extra innings, you knew with Coke coming in, the game would be lost and Phil Choke delivered.

    Phil Coke is another guy who needs to either join Valverde or only be brought in when the Tigers have a 8 run lead which means never.....

    Miggy got his early hit, but when it came to deliver in the clutch with two on and two out, he struck out just as Torii Hunter had done 2 minutes before.

    No bullpen or late inning heroics = short run in the post season.

    Coke is definitely extremely hittable. There must be someone more effective in the farm system.

    Unfortunately it does not appear to be anyone in the "Tiger" farm system that Dombrowski is comfortable with letting Leyland ruin...:biggrin:

    They will need to trade somebody....but who?

    Pitching wasn't the issue today. Tigers scored 1 run in 10 innings.

    Scherzer has the no-hit stuff tonight, but can't avoid mistakes giving up 2 homers on pitches right down the middle. He would truly be elite if he could avoid those.

    No no-hitter, however Max becomes first major league pitcher in 27 years to start season 12-0. Prince with a monster shot that hit off of a moonwalk while it was still rising.

    Much-needed win after the pounding from the Angels.

    Scherzer is now the first pitcher in MLB history to go unbeaten in his first 16 starts of a season while also recording at least 120 strikeouts.

    Scherzer is going to cost a lot of $$$ to retain.

    Scherzer signed a 1 year deal for 6.7 million for 2013.

    Detroit Tigers ink pitcher Max Scherzer to 1-year contract - UPI.com

    His contract almost went to arbitration before this season.

    Tigers and Scherzer decided not to pursue a multi-year deal.
    He made 3.75 million last season with a 16-7 record.

    Max is on hollowed ground now. I really want 13-0 and 14-0
    But say Max gets shelled in the 1st 3 innings, should leyland protect the unbeaten streak ? By pulling him.
