    I don't care how many times he threw a curve ball. It was going straight down when he hit it and it was barely off the ground.

    I couldn't hit that with a 5 iron.

    That's baseball, man. You got to keep them hitters a little nervous when your toeing the rubber.

    35 stolen bases in 36 games is very impressive for a team that only had 35 all of last season.
    23 of those stolen bases are from the new guys..including 13 from Raja Davis.

    Last year they attempted 55 and were caught 20 times
    This year they have attempted 48 and have been caught 13 times

    Last year they grounded into 143 double plays with Miggy, Vmart and Fielder contributing 62. That was about 0 .88 a game.

    So far this year they are at 23, so about 0.64 per game as the runners are faster in beating out the throw at first. Once again Miggy and Vmart lead the team with 6 and 5 respectfully.

    The speed should make up for any shortcomings missing from Fielders dingers.

    It's a better style for the post season pitcher's duels most importantly.

    And you were hoping to be just an average MLB pitcher. So you get an average MLB contract.
    And be a bean baller.
    Yuooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !!!!!

    Most important win of the season!! If we can keep our starters at 6-7 innings at start of season with a confident bullpen, they will be rested and stronger come October.
    P.S.- the writing is on the wall for Coke. We wont see him in ANY meaningful game for the rest of the year.

    Joba and Nathan are pretty solid. They really can throw strikes when they need to and with off speed pitches too.

    Great win last night. I was waiting for the Red Sox to victimize our bullpen. Never happened.

    Porcello!

    Miggy back over .300. 1 through 4 hitters all over that threshold.

    Very impressed with everything at this point. Exceeding all expectations and predictions.

    Can't believe the pistons had a 35-5 start as well.
