    I think they could use a hitter like that, even if it will be mostly in the pinch-hitting situations. I believe he can start "rehabbing" 10 days prior to the end of the suspension, so if any of the Tigers minor league teams are in the playoffs he could get batting practice.

    The last Toledo Mudhens game is scheduled for 9/2....and even if they made the playoffs the Triple A championship game is scheduled for 9/17. So unless Peralta can find a sandlot team to play with for those two weeks before the MLB reegular season is over, he will be as rusty as the Tigers were in their six game layoff before getting swept by the Giants last fall.

    So yesterday may have been the last time you will see Jhonny play in a Tiger uni since he is a FA.

    Toledo is 15+ games under .500 if I remember correctly

    Peralta got in great shape this last off season. He better resume that workout plan.

    Perhaps the supplements that got him in shape are the same reason why his season is done.

    I'm glad I didn't give up on the Tigers tonight. What a cool 9th inning (so far).

    I agree....and if Avila goes cold again, Pena has done a very serviceable job.

    Can't believe that VMart's average is almost 20 points higher than Fielder already. Both he and Avila are coming through.

    11 K's by Sanchez and a perfect 9th by Benoit.

    And guess what... Cleveland lost! We had to take matters into our own hands with them.


    9 straight W's for us and 11 straight for Atlanta.

    Most of them are probably OSU fans that are trying to jump on the baseball bandwagon.

    I have no problem with Pena behind the plate. Both he and Avila seem to mesh well with everyone on the pitching staff. Both are decent defensively. Leyland must love having righty and lefty batting catchers to help simplify his lineup decisions

    Easy way to shut them up: Ask them the last time the Indians won a Series. Been a long time for Detroit but much longer for them. Usually shuts 'em up.

    I believe the whole supplement issue is from a couple of years ago

    Isn't Pena a switch-hitter?
