Seven runs should be enough to win a game but you know the story. Basically, I’m tuning in to watch J.D. Martinez, James McCann, hopefully Miggy win a batting title, and perhaps JV return to an ace level pitcher. Other than that, there’s not a whole lot to watch.
If the Tigers were getting anything out of Victor, this offense would be putting up numbers like the Blue Jays, but he’s is just a wasted spot in the order. He is very difficult to watch. He’s doing nothing.
If I were Huston Street I wouldn’t have pitched to Miggy in the eighth. I don’t care if he were 0-20 against me. He’s hitting just under .500 since his return from the DL and Victor was on deck. No way. Actually, I don’t care who was on deck. The Angels are lucky Miggy didn’t burn them.
VerHagen looked pretty good tonight.
FYI: Nick Castellanos’s base running is exponentially worse than his fielding.
I wonder how playoff ticket sales are going?
