    Tonight's nightcap is about as "must win" as you can get.

    Coke looked better than he has all season last night. Was surprised Ausmus pulled him after 1 and 2/3

    Just wondering, do those two losses count more in the standings when the score is lopsided?

    Nice comeback by the boys over the weekend to take two. Lots of time left in this season.

    In other pitching news..... Reports: Tigers claim Astros closer Chad Qualls, have 48 hours to work out trade | The Detroit News....

    With 21 runs and 32 hits in the past two games, Dombrowski only thinks new pitching and not new hitters....of course the last time we faced the Yankees, what did we score 6 runs in 4 games??? Hopefully the return home to the friendly confines of Comerica park we can out slug the bullpen woes and keep pace, creep closer and surpass the Royals. I don't want to talk wildcard....I want a division crown and then on the the ultimate goal

    Don't forget the Tigers gave up 42 runs in the last 4 games. 42!!!! - That is 10.5 runs per game!!!

    Sometimes these waiver claims are put in just to stop other teams from getting certain guys.

    Like I said can we out slug the amount of runs the bull may will give up?

    We got a three game series with the Yanks and they have won 7 of 9.

    If they get rolling at the right time, the Tigers will have the best starting playoff rotation even without Sanchez:

    1. Price
    2. Scherzer
    3. Porcello
    4. Verlander

    None of them bat !
    And none of them can protect a 1 run lead.

    Porcello pitched great, Nathan had a rare 3 and out and the Tigers got the clutch hits when needed. All they need to is have similar results 4 out of every 5 games the rest of the season.....and we should have this.

    Unfortunately Nathan's twin reared his ugly in KC and the Royals got a walkoff dinger to win a game that should have been 1-0 Twins victory and a half deficit for the Tigers out of first place.

    123 inning percentage would be an interesting stat for closers.

    I think saves converted / save opportunities is really the only one that matters for closers.

    You wouldn't deny a fan a stat would you Beer ?
    I think that stat would indicate just how easy going he is manager stress.

    Quality of the save is helpful to be predictive. WHIP probably already accomplishes what I'm thinking though.
