Flashin' Leather

“God I love baseball.” -Roy Hobbs | The Natural

Tigers 6 Royals 5

I didn’t see one pitch. I’m in San Diego. I saw the Rangers beat the Padres on my first trip to Petco Park. I saw the Rangers pull off a successful steal of home and I picked up a retro Tony Gwynn Jersey. I’m on my way back to my hotel. I’ll post pictures when I get a chance.

It looks like JV pitched well. He went 6.2 and allowed only two earned. It also looked like there were some problems on defense.

Blue Jays 15 Tigers 1

The Blue Jays beat Buck Farmer, lead by three home runs and NINE RBIs from Edwin Encarnacion, and the entire Tigers team into an absolute conniption! This was the worst beating I’ve seen in a long time.

Even Alex Wilson struggled and it looks like The Mighty Miggy is slumping!

This is very ugly!!

Josh Donaldson | Conniption Shot


Sorry Matt Boyd but Josh Donaldson hit this pitch into a conniption.

Blue Jays 5 Tigers 3

The Tigers fell to eight games under .500.  They couldn’t do much against R.A. Dickey.

Matt Boyd looked okay. He was inconsistent. Some innings good. Some not so good. All in all not bad but for a young guy.

VerHangen and Feliz were not bad out of the pen.

The Jays are just rolling and are now my pick to come out of the A.L.

I hope Miggy is not going into a slump.  He hasn’t looked great the last two games. I know that’s a tough thing to say but he’s pretty much what I look forward to when I tune.

Angels 2 Tigers 0

Randy Wolf pitched a gem. Unfortunately, Matt Shoemaker did him one better. For some reason the Tigers just can’t hit Shoemaker, even the Mighty Miggy.

No conniption shots today.

The Tigers dropped another game and another series. There wasn’t much to get excited about other than Wolf’s pitching and two nice throw outs by Alex Avila. A Squared Money displayed a Bazooka and Kinsler helped him out on the back end with a nice pick and tag on the first one.
