    The theory is that closer shuts them down in the top of the 9th inning, you score one run in the bottom of the 9th inning, and you win the game. The theory don't work if the closer walks 3 guys and gives up a grand slam, though.

    If that's his eleventh loss, he just ruined my prognostication. Good news Max 20-1
    Injuns were due. Tigs should keep drifting away. Til Leyland tests the unproven players in difficult situation to make team more experienced.

    I agree with hg here.....if half of those runners lob wound have scored, this would have been another weekend sweep. Instead..now we know how Oakland felt on Thursday. ...
    JV pitches a winnable game and they beat us on five hits and our never cross the plate.

    Hoping for some inspired play at Fenway, where the Tigers never seem to play well.

    The Tigers lead the MLB in LOB and does get frustrating at times watching them.

    But, they also lead the AL in hits and OBP. Of course, they will leave the most on base if they put the most on base. Even with all the LOB, the Tigers still lead the MLB in runs scored.

    Good test to hold another contender who you just happen to be having some secondary stat battles scoreless when both teams are 1-2 the league in runs and hits etc. Now only a half game behind the BoSox for the best record in the AL. First time the Tigers have shut out the BoSox at Fenway since 2009 and the third time in the past 25 years.

    Great pitching by Fister and great defense by Iglesias, including having a hand in 4 DP to keep the Sox from any big innings.

    Tigers now 10-2 w/o Miggy

    Great way to end the long holiday weekend with Spartans, Wolverines, Eastern Michigan and my high school Detroit Cass Tech all winning their opening football games and the Tigers winning 3 of 4.

    TaS will need to do the math on wither the Tigs strand WAAAY too many base runners.
    Which I'm sure he will find oppressive.

    The math is simple:

    Detroit with runners in scoring position: .284 (1st in American League)
    Detroit with runners in scoring position w/2 outs: .261 (1st in American League)
    Detroit with a runner at 2nd base: .294 (1st in American League)
    Detroit when behind in the game: .284 (1st in MLB)
    Detroit when score is tied: .288 (1st in MLB)

    Quit killing the "inconsistent offense" narrative, Bill.

    now see, if I was your math teacher I would need to give you both an incomplete on this equation.
    Your answer leaves me hanging in pitch black space. We knew they they were 1st in stranding runners but how does that compare to other winning teams. What should the average be? How oppressive is this ? Is Leyland to blame ? Is TaS still jinxing this team. Will Woody ever use "lose and loss" properly ? Don't punk me with weak surface minutiae.

    Miggy really looks like he is hurting to me. When the team is 10-2 without him, is it really necessary to have him in there? I'm writing this in the 3rd inning, hoping he proves me wrong.

    Living in New England, I get the NESN guys. Dennis Eckersley is filling in for Jerry Remy. Remy is a real pro. Eckersley is insufferable. I'm surprised none of his teammates killed him while he was playing. The NESN analyst (forget his name) says with the Tigers' huge lead over Cleveland, they are likely to start resting guys. Yeah, I bet Boston would like that.

    10-2 without Miggs hmmm, I'd keep testing that if I was Leyland.
