    But Suh decided not to show for camp to do some early coach bonding.

    Verlander with 2 hits tonight. 6-3. Not bad for the bullpen struggles.

    While we obviously need to fix the problem, the starting pitching is off to a great start.

    Verlander's 2 hits and Sanchez's hit match Avila's 3 hits for the season...and they have one more extra base than he does. Avila leads the team with 14 strikeouts...including 3 tonight.

    JV was stud tonight with the two hits and then what was is 6Ks in his last three innings??

    Avila must be a really great defensive catcher because he gets tons of latitude.

    I think if he continues to hit .130, the Tigers will start shopping for a new catcher. Having your dad as the team's assistant general manager probably gains you more latitude than you deserve.

    His premonition that infante would get hit in the face, garcia would tear his labrum, and fister would experience elbow inflammation is really impressive.

    I was impressed most that he didn't worry too much about picking up offensive free agents because he knew Verlander and Sanchez would be leading the team in hitting at this point.

    If Avila stepped to the other side of the plate and hit righty, we would have Brandon Inge. Or is that an insult to Inge?

    Remember when the 6-5 Tigers were 4-0 and we were looking at a possible 35-5 start ala 84.....

    Their bats are about as cold as the weather and the walks by the pitchers have not helped.....Oh well we still got 151 more games to get it right....

    It's nice when your team has played like crap and there are still only 3 other teams in the entire MLB with fewer losses (and all 3 of them with just 1 fewer loss).

    They should just schedule all early season games in domes or in warn weather climates.
