Put this one on BA. If he doesn’t know this team by now, he’ll never know them.
The Tigers only strength is starting pitching. Their offense is horrible. Their bullpen is an abomination.
Joe Nathan is horrible. Joba is returning to the guy that the Yankees gave up on. Soria, all though he was good today, has not been good in a Tigers uniform.
That being said, let the starters win or lose. Max had only thrown 106 pitches. Send him out for the ninth inning. Add this game to the game in Arizona, when he pulled Freeway Ricky in the eighth for a pinch hitter, and Ausmus is directly responsible of two loses in the last three weeks.
This team isn’t going anywhere.
