It’s hard to complain about a 7-2 road trip.
The Tigers didn’t have the winning recipe today. Smyly was bad and Miggy and Victor were worse.
In fact, Miggy and Vmart were a combined 1-25 for the series. This is worst three game stretch I’ve ever seen from Miggy. The Tigers won’t be playing in November if he goes through too many stretches like this.
I hope it is just a short lived spell.
Don’t look now but Oakland is in town.

One thought on “Astros 6 Tigers 4”
This game rubbed me the wrong way… First, the excuse given for sitting Kinsler was insulting… He wanted to sit him once before the AS break… But they have a day off next Monday… If anyone should have sat it was Miggy… He needs a few days off and he should have sat him due to poor performance the prior 2 games… But it turns out Miggy took the day off anyway – the whole series actually… The comments from Miggy after the game about how any team would have been happy with a 7-2 trip… Bullshit… The team being honored tonight wouldn’t have… If you read the comments from Dan Petry in the article yesterday, the 84 Tigers had a swagger about them, and when they went on the road they had a bad-ass attitude.. as in ‘here we come to whip your ass’.. As I said last week, that road trip would define the rest of the season, and now we at least know they will be in it the whole way… 7-2 was ok, but 8-1 or 9-0 would have been better.. Now if they can start playing better at home they might be on to something, and I might actually be drawn to come watch a game or 2… But because of the team attitude described earlier I doubt they will pull away very much…
