After winning the first two against Boston I thought the Tigers were going to turn it around. Instead they proceeded to lose two in a row.
The Tigers don’t have a closer. Nathan hasn’t been good and Joba failed a test on Sunday, giving up three runs in the ninth to take the loss.
They followed that debacle up with a loss to the White Sox yesterday. Ricky pitched horribly and I’m getting worried he’s not going to have the season I thought and hoped he would.
Perhaps today’s rain out is a good thing. Maybe it will break the bad mojo.
The one thing that perplexes me is why the Tigers can never seem to find a closer. In contrast, the A’s never sign a closer and always seem to find someone to pitch the ninth inning. Maybe DD should take a look at what they do.
In any case, all we have now is to hope this team can somehow put it together.
Maybe it can start with a ball smokin performance from JV tomorrow.
