Tigers Win, Kinsler Gets Picked Off Again

In a previous post, I wrote about Steve Chilton’s speech at the annual dinner held by the Detroit Baseball Society. Chilton started off his speech with a story about his mother who passed away over the summer.  He said he was called to the hospital late at night because his mother wasn’t doing well.  When he arrived he sat next to his mother’s bed who was sleeping.  Sometime early in the morning his mother awoke and said to him, ‘Kinlser got picked off again.”

Those were her last words.

Last season Kinsler made a habit of getting picked off of first base.  Yesterday afternoon, he graduated to getting picked off of second base.  Kinsler doubled with one out, in the top of the ninth, and then was promptly picked off of second base.  Let’s hope this doesn’t continue.

I’m not holding my breath.
