Delmon Young Back in Lineup for Game 2, Batting 3rd
he wasn't on the roster.
As the article says, they added him back on.
You can replace someone on the roster with someone off of it, but that person becomes unavailable the current and next round. Since Maggs is out for the year its no biggie.
Totally a great solution. I hope he's 100%. Losing Maggs for the season (career?) is actually a blow because he's been pretty consistently getting singles, but DY is a good fall back.
has said on multiple occasions that threads about Detroit pro sports teams are fine even during the season.
I called that one.
It was pretty obvious what was going to happen. They were unsure whether he would be able to go in game 1, and wanted to get another guy on the roster until Delmon was ready.
I am sure Maggs injury is about as legit as DG's back injury last season, and by that I mean totally legit.
You are BKFinest at his finest.
I wouldn't go that far, that guy is legend.
This seems like a desperation move by the Tigers, or Young's injury was just exagerrated somewhat.
Hope it pays off and we can come home 1-1, otherwise Texas will just have to take 1 game in Detroit and still be pretty golden to win
It is either desperation, or the opposite.
Just as plausible an idea is that they were being cautious with Young, and wanted to give him a day or two extra, and that this was the plan all along. Unless you are a Tigers coach or medical staff, you can't say for sure.
I guess we'll just have to find out tonight. Our pitching should be able to be good enough, it's just our offense has to show up. And it's not just Delmon, I'm talking about Miggy and V-Mart for the most part.
his plan was faking an injury for Ordonez or hoping someone else would get injured. If you really think we did that then, you must be much have Leyland in low esteem ... better to be a doom gloom guy I suppose!
Then I guess I must be much have Leyland in low esteem. (Nice) I felt on Friday that this would happen. Not necessarily with Maggs, but somehow I felt Young would get back in.
Our corner outfield situation is a desperate situation. This is the alcs, im all for a desperate move to alleviate a desperate situation.
An injured Delmon is still better than a healthy Clete Thomas.
in the context of MGoBlog. Why click all over to read different "forums" when we can all connect right here? Posters all seem pretty knowledgeable about Detroit sports teams. If you don't want to read about the Tigers here, don't click on the post.
Hey y'all. I love the Tigers and Jimmy Leyland as much as the next guy, but can someone explain to me why Verlander wouldn't start games 4 and 7 in this series. It looks like, even with the delay, Leyland is going with a four-man rotation. Please help me understand why we wouldn't use the most lethal weapon in Major League Baseball three times in this series. Thanks!
Current rotation assignments:
10/8 - Verlander, Game 1
10/9 - OFF
10/10 - Scherzer, Game 2
10/11 - Fister, Game 3
10/12 - Porcello, Game 4
10/13 - Verlander, Game 5
10/14 - OFF
10/15 - Scherzer, Game 6
10/16 - Fister, Game 7
I think Leyland has faith in his other starters and figures Verlander will be better with the extra days rest. Another factor may be having JV ready and fresh for game 1 of the WS should the Tigers make it. If JV is to pitch in a game 7, it most likely will be in the WS.
JV pitched a career high 251. innings in the regular season and has logged another 12 so far in the post season and would have more except for rain. If JV were to pitch 3 games in the WS he would be pushing close to 300 innings for the season. It ain't like Leyland is babying him.
Hell yeah. Hopefully he doesn't reinjure his oblique, What would we do then if he is forced to leave the series?
Meant to say:
Delmon Young Back in Lineup for Game 2, Batting...THUUUURRRRD.
I'm guessing that Young will try to gut through at least one game in Texas, then maybe they bring in Dirks or Thomas once the game is back in Detroit. Tough break for Maggs, but at least Detroit has a reasonable short-term substitute.
