It’s nice to get a win after three horrible losses but pardon me if I’m not going to sing the praises of this six run outburst.
The Tigers jumped out to a big lead with six runs in the first. However, after the second inning, they made Noesi look like Nolan Ryan.
A note on Miggy: I know my complaining about him seems insane but here’s why I’m a little disappointed in him this year. The Tigers have a streaky offense. In previous years, the Tigers could count on Miggy to give them professional at-bats while surrounded by ineptitude. This hasn’t happened this year. It seems like when the team is going well Miggy is going well. When the offense is sucking Miggy is sucking.
Miggy’s season reminds me of Jeff Weaver circa 10 years ago. Jeff was a good pitcher but he wasn’t a stopper. He couldn’t be the guy that stopped a losing streak. Similarly, readers might remember Sark talking about needing a fireman out of the pen, someone that can come in and stop the bleeding. Miggy used to be the offensive fireman but not so much this year.
I guess I need to cut him some slack.
