    Alvarez looked horrible yesterday. Felt like about 5 hits in a row against him. He deserved the L.

    Was messing around on fangraphs and noticed some really deep splits that you can look into.

    Our bullpen's ERA in August was about 2.8 and one of the best in baseball. We nabbed Veras and Bonderman, so hopefully this trend continues and we can avoid using some of the guys like Coke and co who were horrible.

    Verlander Watch: 44-pitch first inning with 2 walks, 2 hits and 2 earned runs allowed. Thanks, JV, for putting the team in a 2-run hole before they even get to bat. This is getting ridiculous.

    No need to panic. Verlander will be just fine.

    No panic here, BL. Just pointing out his difficulties in the first inning. Basically, JV has burned one-third of his pitches in one inning. I hope he has some lighter innings. We need seven innings out of him.

    The A's seem to enjoy Comerica, for some reason. They pounded Sanchez and Co. pretty hard last night.

    We've been running away with the league, just trying to keep us humble.

    Despite the loss, the Tigers magic # was reduced to 26. And the O's Chris Davis did not hit a HR.

    The Tigers appear to be in good shape but the home field advantage that they had enjoyed earlier in the season has been shaky in August.

    In other news, if we had the 2011 versions of Verlander, Papa Grande. VMart and Fielder we would be leading the Indians by 20 games now and coasting to the world series and there would be no doubt that we could beat anyone in the post season in October.

    To some there is no doubt now, but there are pessimists out there that we still got some holes that have yet to be filled despite leading the league in hitting and runs. Inconsistency in pitching from the starters Verlander & Porcello, and the set up men Albuquerque and Rondon are concerns.

    Not only are the Tigers last in stolen bases, but they are also last in throwing out the opposing runners stealing second. This could be a problem that opposing teams will exploit in the post season and we don't have the speed or the gut calls by the coaches to offset it.

    Still we should be favored in the world series over the Pirates or Dodgers, just as we were in 2006 and 2012 and you now how that turned out....

    sounds like very minor concerns.

    Just a note: Avasail Garcia is playing very well for the White Sox.

    Now if we had traded Dirks and Tuiasosopo for Iglesias....

    It's a lot easier to get a base hit when your team SUCKS and no one is paying attention.

    Me, too. My point was this:

    Garcia was batting .241 playing for the Tigers in a thick of a pennant race.

    Now, Garcia is batting .328 after 18 games with the White Sox, who are currently 21 games out of first place.

    My point was:

    Garcia was hitting .241 with the Tigers playing only sporadically.

    Playing regularly with the Sox, .328.
