    So now my predictions have become one of Moses' commandments?.... since when did I become Nostradamus????? Sports Illustrated has Tampa Bay as the number one ranked team in the AL but they predicted their 5 starters win total and it only totalled 58 of their 95 predicted wins! That's one helluva bullpen to get 37 wins or TB is a great late inning team!!!! It's just numbers , buddy.

    The Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Scherzer pitched "a great game." He didn't say anything about struggling the entire game.

    Hi...
    Just noting your prediction and its interesting quality.
    Interesting that you chose Moses...
    I might have chosen Noah...
    I didn't mean to give you that sinking feeling.

    Ahh, since you first got here.
    However this is the first time you've admitted it.

    What was the command center watching in NY...obviously the guy at second was out on the exchange. ..guess they didn't want to embarrass the ump....or didn't want Ausmus to go 3 for 3.

    that did look like a comeuppance for Ausmus.....I knew Miggs would bust out a bit today.....Smyly showed why he is indispensible for the bullpen....I try another lefty starter in the our so unneccasry 5th spot JUST to keep Smyly where he is.

    Smyly has the ability to be a great starter too. Would be a shame not to find out.

    No doubt. He has earned the chance to be that #5 guy this year.

    Although the season is young, there is only ONE team in baseball of the 30 teams that is still undefeated.

    This team showed all the elements on why they might MIGHT run away with the AL CENTRAL! ....OR they may need to make a HUGE trade around June.


    It STARTS with the ability to get from several sources: Today, it was Tori and Porcello. Porcello is YOUNGER, healthier and due for a good year (but I still Love Fister)

    BUT IF we HAVE to pitch Coke, he cant face more than ONE left handed hitter at a outing...after that, take him out!

    Nathan can NOT appear in more than 60 GAMES this year. If he gets 35 saves and 5 wins with 8 blown saves or less, I will be ECSTATIC!

    Ian KINSLER is the shisnit on the field!! He is representing the NUMBER 3 very well!!!

    4-0 and bullpen is still suspect......................Why is Phil Choke still on this team??? What we have learned so far is not pitch Joba and Coke in close games.

    Didn't see the game, but based on box score, phreakin' Phil Coke strikes (out) again. Seriously, isn't there another lefty out there this team can get?

    Truth be told...... Nathan didn't look any better than Coke.
