    This team is not ready for prime time.... Can't hold a ninth inning lead for two games in a row and then go 15 innings without scoring run after piling what about 12 of their 22 hits after the ninth...Kinda knew the Blue Jays would win it once they went into extra innings...just didn't know we would literally have to play over two games to get the loss.

    I think David Price is probably wondering what he got himself into? Now down to .5 game lead over the Royals......luckily we have 47 games left to at least hang on for a wild card berth.... :swear2:

    Actually, the bullpen did a heck of a lot better than Price today.

    He did alright for five innings..but when he was already over 100 in the sixth I new we could have an issue...My point is he like me maybe more concerned about the lack of power and failure to deliver the timely clutch hits when needed.

    We got two on Friday, but remember our successful championship teams of the past have been successful of either holding leads or piling up comeback wins. I can count on one hand how many comeback wins they have this year, but would need my two hands and most of my toes to count how many late losses.

    Didn't we lead 5-0 at one point? Most pitchers would kill for lack of power like that.

    Well...at least the season isn't boring.
    It would be terrible just to run away with this thing.

    Beginning today, the Tigers will go on a roll and win 9 of their next 10. I have a strong feeling about this.

    I have a strong feeling that you have a strong feeling about this. Given the peaks and valleys of this season, it's not out of the realm of possibility.

    I have a strong feeling that you're just hoping. "Hope" is the the thing with feathers.... - Emily Dickinson

    I have a strong feeling the team really needs a session with Emily.

    I loved Good Morning Vietnam. Mork and Mindy used to be my favorite show at one time, too.
