Currently 0-0 in the bottom of the 6th. FIster is pitching a great game, everyone needs to turn on their tvs and watch this game.
no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
fister is perfect through 6
second time this season aquaman.... ¬¬
Well I recall you being less than fond of the deal for Fister, what are your thoughts about the trade at this moment?
My thoughts are that his pitching profile has completely changed since he's come to Detroit. His K rate has almost doubled, which is unexpected and has made him much more of an effective pitcher. If he can keep striking out guys at the rate he has been, he should continue to pitch well. His career numbers don't bear this out, but for Detroit's sake I hope he can.
Your obvious disdain for one of the oldest customs in the game is a living advertisement of why negbangs should be allowed again.
Great game so far, now need to get the bats rolling.
Fister has been dirty tonight. Actually, he's been real good both of his last two starts.
Let's just get him some run support. I don't like how the White Sox continue to creep around behind us in the standings... a win tonight would be nice.
indeed a great game....was about to post a thread myself.
how about that 3-0 count he just turned into a strikeout too?
We need to score a run or two first.
Tune in folks.
This is the fastest baseball game I've ever watched. And Fister is 66.7% of the way to historic. I really hope we score at least one run if that is still happening.
Holy faster, Fister, this is the fastest Fister game I've ever seen.
The problem is, this Francis character, how has a season BAA of .291(!) is having an almost equally dirty game.
which is what makes this game seem like its in hyperdrive!
Yep. We had to start the thread, didn't we?
This is a good game, that I wanted everyone to watch. I don't know what you are talking about...
ah crap...well still an awesome game being pitched right now
well you fucked that up
First rule of a possible no-hitter... NEVER MENTION THE NO-HITTER grrrrr
Read the OP, I didn't.
can we rename Inge automatic out?
This will likely be one of the best pitched games by any pitcher in our division all season, and I'll be really pissed if he gets a loss for his efforts.
They have not been playing good all-around baseball the past 3 games. They are either hitting well and pitching like garbage, or pitching well (tonight) and barely hitting.
Big single to tie the game at 1-1
I see you Mags
can someone help me finda place to watch this game online for free thanks.
Let's end it in regulation
Santiago to the rescue!!!! As Haray Caray used to say; "It might be, it could be, it is, Home Run Ramon Santiago"
I have to admit, the Tigers are scrapping for wins. I really like this team...
Anyone seen a his numbers since coming on with the Tigers? I recall three wins and zero losses but I know I miss games.
it was either his first and second start, he got bombed in that one. He has been very good since that game though. He is 3-1 with a 3.45 ERA in his starts with the Tigers.
Fister is a Sabre-metrician's wet dream. The guy has all the the advanced stats in his favor, had the worst run support in the majors in Seattle, and now he's got a team that has offense to bring to his back (tonight not withstanding). The Tigers may have gotten a steal in getting this guy. He's not going to be Greg Maddux, but I think he's the dependable #3 starter the Tigers have been looking for since Bonderman washed out.
Fister may be the second best pitcher on the staff at this point. He has had a solid year and has been very reliable since he was obtained. The same cannot be said of Scherzer, Porcello or Penny.
At the game tonight. Loved the fister deal from day one. Also, I've been to ten games this year and have seen three no hitters reach at least the seventh inning. It's been a blast this year that's for sure
How 'bout Joaquin Benoit? He's had an ERA of "no" for just shy of a month now.
Also, this happened:
Tigers one out away from a Wednesday afternoon victory. Royals have runner on 2nd with 2 out
The Tigers win in comeback fashion. Valverde 40 for 40
Jacob Turner getting his second career start Thursday
