just 4 that , u can wait....
I didn't see the game but based on the boxscore, Jim Leyman is up to his old tricks again of over managing and pulled Mr Jackson again after six scoreless innings. Then the bullpen proceeds to give up 10 runs in the 7th??? ESPN will be all over this 11-0 Yankee win..........
He overmanaged a lil bit. Jack threw 114 pitches, but Leyland messed up bringing Perry into a 0-0 game!!! plus Anderson dropped a sure double play out when it was 0-0. He would have caught it and thrown out runner at palte but he overran the ball.
What happen tonight?? I was watching the 100 day prez-pressor and when I turned back to the game it 7-1 Stankees??
Bad inning for Porcello. When Willis comes back , I believe perry and Porcello need to go back to AAA for a little practice. They arent quite ready yet!
Power Rankings: Red Sox rock the hardest - MLB - Yahoo! Sports Where are those Tigers on the Power Rankings....
If they had not given up 19 runs in the last two games to the yanks and actually swept them, we probably would be in the 8th spot instead where the Yanks are now...
I like the way Jim is managing this year. Hit and Runs, Squeeze plays and small ball are all a part of his arsenal. Jackson was out of gas. He was over 100 pitches and had struggled to throw strikes the inning before.
There will be changes when Willis gets back but I am thinking that Lyons and Rincon need to be removed from the pen. They are terrible. I am O.K. with the young kids playing. There will be some growing pains but it will be well worth it if we get into the post season. Let them take their lumps now and learn from them.
The Tigers are now 4-0 on Sundays. The Pistons and Lions combined to go 4-27 on Sundays last season. Looks like it wasn't so kind to the Wings yesterday either.
With 21 more Sundays that means that the Tigers will have at least 34 victories this year. To bad they don't do Sunday doubleheaders like they did when I was a little tyke.
Cabrerra's batting average is now 2nd in league at a hair under .400. Also, Inge continuing to be one our best offensive weapons... and surprisingly has the most walks on the team as well as HR's (tied with CG). Galarraga solidifying himself as our best pitcher.
Verlander will have the most wins this season with 18...
JV aint out of the woods yet. Let him win 5 0f 6 and we'll talk. These guys batting avg. have been fluctuating like the market. Lettuce still batting 4th @.259... Gally will have 19.
Loved the line up change yesterday. Would have preferred that Granderson batted third and dopped Clete to sixth. Our batting order needs to be changed to account for the new players on the roster. I see it this way: Anderson Polanco Granderson Cabby Maggs Inge Laird Thomas Everett/Santiago
Maggs [Lettuce] should be 8th, til he gets it up to .285. What's up with him ? 9-0 Tigs over Twinks, yeah baby yeah !
Maggs looks and plays like tiny tim. </IMG>
I will disagree with that...
GRANDERSONNNNNNN NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN NNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!WOW!!!!!!!!!!! GREATEST GAME ENDING/DECIDING CATCH I EVER SEEN 'LIVE'!!! WOWTHEHELLOW!!!
