Here we go again…

Just when I thought the Tigers may turn this season around, they’re at it again.  With yesterday’s loss to the Angels, they have now lost 4 of 5 after a nice home stand.

The problem hasn’t really been pitching, it is the damn offense, which refuses to hit.  Everyone, including Miggy has SUCKED on this trip and I’m growing tired of it.

What is the problem and how much longer can they run Upton out there?

Also, BA needs to go.  A neophyte baseball fan could see that JV was out of gas in the 8th.  He was missing high in the strike zone and let the bottom of the Angels’ lineup hang a 4 spot on him.

It isn’t even June and I’m finding this team hard to watch this team.

The Miguel Cabrera Show

Jose Miguel Cabrera put the Tigers on his back and carried the them to a 5-4 win over Philadelphia.

Miggy was 3 for 3 with two more Conniption Shots, a double, a walk, 2 RBIs and 3 runs scored. Perhaps the Phillies should have considered walking him after his second conniption shot?

Honorable mentions got to J.D. Martinez and Nick “The Quick” Castellanos for chipping in with home runs; Victor Martinez for going 3-4 and driving in Miggy with the winning run and Mark Lowe and K-Rod for pitching clean 8th and 9th innings.

Speaking of Francisco Rodriguez, perhaps reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated.  If I’m not mistaken, this is his 6th save conversion in a row.

FYI: Jose Miguel Cabrera is that damn good!

Louisville Cardinals vs North Carolina State Wolfpack (NCAA/ACC)

26949360061_f7db084c0a_zJim Patterson Stadium-Louisville, KY:  Well, I thought it would be a little bit warmer here in Kentucky, but last weekend was a little bit cool.  With cold, nasty, rainy weather blasting the Midwest lately, I guess I can’t complain too much, as I’m sure we have it better than others.  While the temp was a little on the cold side, the Louisville Cardinals baseball team stayed hot.  Hosting ACC rival North Carolina State, we were able to get downtown and see the middle game of the series.  I brought the boys with, and as usual Brian decided to head to the playground.

Detroit 9 Rays 4

Well, it appears that Miggy’s demise was greatly exaggerated. The Mighty Miggy has four homers in the last three games, including two conniption shots, and has his batting average up to .315 with an OBS of .925.

More importantly, after losing 11 of 13, the Tigers have now won 6 of their last 7 and are within a game of the .500 mark.

I am concerned with the injuries to Zimmerman and Miggy.  If either one misses an extended period of time, the Tigers could be in a lot of trouble.
