if I am crazy, I have company
OT: Detroit Tigers 10/6; 5pm
You're only crazy if you get excited at the prospect of Laird hitting with a runner on first.
BUT he is strictly in there for his D/game calling.
After that I refuse to defend his ass.
Ahh f*ck. It's alright, kid, keep it up.
Scares the crap out of me.
Definitely my least favorite Tigers pitcher, but he's about all we can throw out there with someone like Zumaya gone. At least, he's the guy Leyland prefers.
on elm street style
This is unreal.
why did he take him out
Because he's by-the-book, very predictable
He needed that walk.
Gotta root for the guy and give him tons of credit for gutting it out. I wish the Tigers had just put him on the DL for a while to rest up and get healthy.
I have no faith in his ability at the plate. He is absolutely atrocious.
I know, I can hardly hide my disdain for him each game. I know "he's in for his defense" but at some point you have to be able to contribute something offensively other than strikeouts (the best he can usually offer, really), double plays and pop-up bunts. That's inexcusable when you don't hit well.
Jim Leyland. So...fucking...much.
Thing is, the second-half swoon is nothing new for him, it's just that he had the wild card to fall back on in 2006 and a crappy division this year. He underachieved in 2007 and REALLY crapped the bed in 2008 and that made this year look good in comparison. Just incredible. Still hope for tonight, though.
But I hate him as a baseball player.
Of all the guys you had in the bullpen. Miner. Zach Miner. Great job old man.
it hurts to watch
Give Leyland five seconds and he'll do nothing but praise Miner. I don't get it, I absolutely do not get it.
Better score next inning before Nathan ends the season.
Ordonez, Cabrera, Guillen up.....is Nathan gonna come in for 6 out save?
Gardenhire should listen to me...
he may pitch two
????????? holy shit
Fuck yeah! Comin' again to save the mutha-fuckin' day, yeah!
just learned some new words...all in the way of progress
Let's go Raburn, time to get to the Twinkies before Nathan comes in!
Why is Laird hitting here? Why is Laird hitting here? WHY IS LAIRD HITTING HERE!?!?
Hey at least Laird didn't make an out on the first pitch of the AB.
I don't care if we somehow win this game, I demand an apology from every Leyland/Laird apologist out there after this crapfest
1st and 3rd nobody out!!!!!!
Three chances to come through for the heart of the order, let's go!
If the Tigers don't score with runners at 1st and 3rd, no out, they do NOT belong in the playoffs. Let'see how this plays out.
There's your answer. I'm just shocked it wasn't Laird's fault (this time)
that was not a strike...
The pitch that Lyon JUST threw was EXACTLY the same spot that this piece of shit ump rung up Polanco on.
Absolutely bullshit. Way to call a tight strike zone all nite long then suddenly ring someone up on a pitch definitely out of the zone.
I said the same thing. Those two pitches could be the difference in this game.
-Save situation: good
-Non-save situation: divide by 0 error
What about in tie ballgames? I know his numbers have been terrible when he is in a game with a big lead (or way behind), but this is basically a save situation in that he needs to "save" the game so Detroit can try and win it in the 10th.
Right you are, at least tonight. Anyway, in close games he's been very good about not blowing leads or putting us behind
I bet those knees feel pretty good right about now. What a play.
