This was actually a pretty well played game. It lacked offense but I like a pitcher’s dual once in a while; just as long as I don’t have to tip my cap to every ham & egger toes the slab against us. Both Price and Tillman were smokin balls. The Tigers should have cashed a run in the bottom of the first when they had a runner on third with one out but Tillman looked like a top of the rotation guy last night.
David Price gutted out seven impressive innings allowing a single run on a solo shot by Manny Machado while striking out 12 and walking 1. Alex Wilson did what he does and pitched a clean 8th. Krol got a LONG out to lead off the 9th. Then Rondon essentially put the game out of reach by giving up two runs. He needs to a bus ticket south about an hour.
Rondon did not pitch well and I can’t and won’t defend him. But Anthony Gose could have bailed him out by making a catch he makes 9 out of 10 times.
It seems like things just are not working out for this team. It doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Unfortunately, I listened to 97.1 for a few minutes yesterday and some blow hard was talking about how if he were a season ticket holder he would be offended if the Tigers traded David Price. I am a season ticket holder and here’s what offends me, charging $10.50 for three chicken fingers.

At this point time is not on their side….I have finally come around to the way of thinking that if they drop everything till the deadline and have to blow it up. I’ll spend time watching the rebuild…..and I won’t hate and if they fool me and come back…GREAT!
I’m with you!!
