    Had a chance to read some of the Free Press columnists regarding Peralta, and I agree with them. He should not be allowed back in a Tigers uniform after serving his suspension. He cheated. You could argue that there are other cheaters out there (possibly on the Tigers, too), but he got caught -- after he denied using. I know he's having a good season, but allowing him back after the suspension shows the team condones it.

    You're right. Don't think I ever paid attention and just thought he was a rightie

    Yeah, but the way Avila is rolling lately I'd like to keep him around :smile:

    It is a good thing Torii Hunter has been so good this season. It has masked the problems the team has had in the leadoff position. Jackson is 76th in MLB in on-base percentage.

    The Tigers have scored 561 runs, the 2nd most in all of MLB.

    They've been up and down. Of course, as soon as I say something they put a 5-spot. Don effin Kelly 3-for-3 with a 3-run homer.

    How do they do that? Seems like the offense has struggled somewhat as of late, but I guess they manage to come up with the big innings like a 4-run 9th yesterday and 5-run 5th today to keep run production up.

    10 straight baby!! and the Indians are now 5 back which means we can leave town up anywhere from 3 to 7 game lead on them....before facing the equally hot Royals!!

    These head-to-head games with Cleveland are HUGE. Don Kelly was the hero tonight. Verlander quietly threw a 4-hitter over 8 innings giving up only 1 run and striking out 7.

    Going into tonight, we were only 1 loss more than Pittsburgh for fewest in MLB. Didn't see if they won or lost tonight, but we went from being the leader of a weak division to being legit in a matter of weeks. And the strength of our division is clearly more than what was believed early.

    Benoit has allowed 1 run in 17 appearances since Valverde was sent down. Let's hope that he's the same guy late in the season.

    We are also tied with KC for the fewest runs allowed in the AL. We have Fister and Scherzer starting the next 2, so should at least win 1.

    Detroit Tigers' Justin Verlander fixes flaw in delivery, finds groove in best start of 2013 season | MLive.com
    I hope that all issues have been fixed and he can roll into the post-season in top form.
