Well it all comes down to tomorrow’s game.
The Tigers have scored a combined 6 runs in the first 3 games of this series. If the offense is ever going to do something tomorrow would be a good day to start.
Anibal Sanchez was not good today and the offense couldn’t bail him out.
Austin Jacskson struck out 2 more times today making it 6 Ks in 2 games. I hate to pick on AJax because he has plenty of company but he’s the lead-off man. He’s supposed to be the offensive catalyst and he’s not even having good at bats. But again, nobody else is doing anything either.
I hate to even think this but does anybody think putting Dirks in the lead-off spot might help? He batted lead-off around 6 week ago and went 4-4. I know this is a stretch but I’m looking for anything at this point. The offense has to start earning its keep. This is ridiculous!
This is what I’m thinking, have Dirks bat lead-off and play left. Have Peralta DH and have Victor catch. Alex will have to sit.
This lineup might seem like a drastic change but tomorrow is time to “F*** or walk” to steal a line from Glengarry Glen Ross.
The only starter in today’s lineup batting .300 or better is Omar Infante.
