There goes the ’84 feeling.
JV looked pretty good for six innings then blew up in the seventh. He’s just running bad. And when you’re running bad everything seems to go against you. That’s what happened to JV.
In his defense, he only gave up one hard hit ball and didn’t get much help from his friends in the pen. Ian Krol recorded the second out but Everyday Al gave up a two run single to Omar Infante.
I really need to look up the Tigers bullpen record on stranding runs. The eye-test says they’re an abomination. I wonder what the numbers say?
OK, Miggy is worrying me. He took another ofer today. He got a bunch of hits in the first game, as did everyone else, then I don’t think he got a hit in the final three games. This seems to be a reoccurring theme, one game he gets 3 or 4 hits then disappears for a few games. This is not what I expect for $30 million a year.
Between Verlander and Cabrera, the Tigers are getting $60 million worth of , not good enough. “For everyone to whom much is given, from him much will be required; and to whom much has been committed, of him they will ask the more.” Luke 12:48(KJV)
This is the worst week of the summer. After the ASG, not baseball for two days.
