    Leyland reaches into well to swap pitchers from Downs to Villareal and the Twins push across a run Tigers lead 2-1 at the end of 7.

    Need an insurance run to put Tiger fans at ease..

    You have to wonder...about who should have been in there to close it.....maybe JL should have started Coke to begin the inning instead of leading off the inning with Benoit. or just brought in Albuquerque. It's a crap shoot with JL on knowing when to hold and yank

    Dirks is used to Jackson handling those fly balls and looks like he was waiting for him to take it.

    This pontent lineup has got to do a better job getting 5 plus runs when you got a shaky bull pen....Thanks for the shut out ball Sanchez

    there goes the undefeated season and I am off the bandwagon:biggrin:

    I was okay with Benoit pitching to the leadoff right-hander. Walking a guy to leadoff the 9th is a killer, though. You have guys like Dotel and Alburquerque. Frustrating loss. Need to score more than 2 runs.

    So who is our hitting coach? A team with this potent of batting line up should be knocking in 5+ runs a game. You need that to avoid any late inning bullpen collapse.

    The seventh inning bases loaded = no runs was the real issue. That should not happen as the team starts to gel. Strike outs by the big guys shouldn't happen

    I not sure if Dirks is ready yet, but I believe he is the only Tiger that went hitless in the series and Avila probably had only one.

    It's early in the season, so no need get upset yet, but this is a series that the Tigers should have won or even swept.

    Hopefully they can regroup at Comerica this weekend and sweep the so far winless Yanks.

    3 total runs allowed by our starting pitchers in 3 games/ 15.1 innings. ERA = 1.79
    10 runs allowed by our pen in 10 innings. ERA = 9.0

    I think that through rigorous analytic study, I have isolated part of the problem.

    Help is on the way...

    It will take another week or two, but all of the starters should be able to pitch into the 8th inning by their third start, as long they are in control of the game, the weather is nice and those darn bats are humming....

    This is why developing your own players is so important. It appears we are going to end up losing Castellanos or garcia to get a decent closer!

    My MVP went yard TWICE and barely missed a THIRD!! Gotta keep Martinez healthy. About 130-140 games for Victor same with Avila.

    Smyly redeems his game one outing retiring 12 in a row to close out the game with his first ever Tiger save.

    Prince goes yard twice, and Avila gets off the snide.

    Just waiting for Dirks bat to wake up...

    Good seeing my childhood hero Willie Horton out on the mound throwing out the pitch...

    Tigers at 3-3.......need bullpen help.
    I'll panic if they're at 25-25 by warm weather.

    Bullpen is not the problem, at this point. They need the offense to get going.
