Listening to the Tigers in the office today. We're getting shelled (9-0) in the fifth and the bullpen has gone from great shape at the beginning of the Cleveland series to desperate after yesterday's 13 inning cluster///. Anyway, Coke got beaten up again last night and is in no shape to pitch today. He may very well be released very shortly. But he took the ball to try to eat a couple innings in a lost cause today in an attempt to avoid further damage to the staff. Credit where it's due.
