    If you are getting shelled and you are the starter, you take the loss no matter how many innings you pitched.

    That's sensible Beer, like last year in the WS Justin got shelled and was left in.
    But if he hasn't got his stuff way waste him ? Considering what's on the line.

    Looks like our only consistency the last two weeks is Scherzer's pitching and the run support that keeps him undefeated. Anybody else pitches, he's got to get out there and try to bat in some insurance runs himself and since that ain't happening, the result is normally the same in the end no matter who we play..

    Blame goes all the away around...bats silent in the end of the game (the last 7 innings) ...Dirks and Kelly are in the lineup, doing their usual nothing....Bullpen gives away the game (again) and JL has lost it when it comes to leaving them in and yanking them. There is probably no debate whether Verlander stayed in too long or not to give up the tying run...but if Smyly strikes out the side in the ninth on 14 pitches, why isn't he out there in the 10th inning, instead bringing out a guy who's ERA is double digits? Rondon gives up three singles and wild pitch and the game is over. I hope he is on the first bus back to Toledo and send JL with him.
    2-9 in extra innings:gaah: ...don't look now but guess who only has a one game lead on the Indians:crossed:

    Rondon has been a stud in Toledo. You have to put him out there in situations like last night. Smyly is going to start working more games with 1 inning at a time (instead of 3-4 innings of mop-up).

    Tigers are 2nd worst in the AL in run scored in innings 7-9. That is their biggest problem right now.

    I would have preferred to send Rondon out a time or two without that much pressure, settle him in a bit first.... I seldom say its a manager lose, but last night I'm giving a majority of the blame to the old skipper.

    Unfortunately, Max appears to be the only pitcher that the Tiger hitter are bailing out on a regular basis. Eight games in and the Tigers are underperforming. They just don't have that winning mentality. When a game is close or goes into extra innings, this team seems to lose confidence.

    That 7th inning was painful. Bases loaded, no outs....you've got to score a run or two there.

    We are too slow to steal home
    *
    .
    There are slim chances the team could bail him out late. But by removing him before he goes deeper in the hole maybe he does take the loss.
    Doesn't get the win either but that was a forgone conclusion.
    But something can be said for consistancy . We do it this way all the time.
