I just turned it on, what happened to Fister?
fair point that
He pulled his oblique or something on that spot. No diagnosis yet. But the team responded well to that I would say.
Fielder hits his first HR for Tigers. Congrats to him
Fielder hits his second HR for the Tigers...who now have five off Beckett in this game.
The bash brothers cabby and prince have both gone deeeeep.
Miguel making plays at 3rd.
and Prince, doing what they get paid to do. Cabrera looking very good in the field as well.
Cabby is putting on a show at 3B. Also. If anyone is interested in Detroit sports, in particular the Tigers and Wings, I started a blog recently with a few friends.
I love a good sports blog about my favorite teams. Nothing like wasting time on the D's teams at work. Inge has given his heart and soul to the team though. He may not be close to the best, but he loves Detroit, so give the man a break.
Shame on you and shame on every fan that booed Brandon during opening introductions.
Where are the people who said that Cabrera moving to 3rd would be a liability now?
settle down, its games 2, 160 more to go. He's gonna make some bad plays that will bring out the doubters. but so far...he looks damn good.
I am right here. Heck the club all but admitted it. They just think his hitting will compensate for it.
It's a long season and those plays down at 3rd will inevitably matter in actual competitive games, not blowouts.
I am actually surprised at all the Tiger fans diving on board with no reservations about a contender this blatantly bought. Playing off your question, where are all the fans who whined about the spending of the Yankees and Boston all those years?
He's gunna be fine there. That's his true position. It is where he played in Florida
That ball is gone! Its behind the yellow line!
Definitely a home run!
And they thankfully got it right! Miggy on a mission! Lets get a back to back!
Wish my Nats could have gotten Prince but I expect big things from him in Detroit
When your most recent draft classes graduate to the majors you're going to be a happy Nats fan.
FUCK YEAHHHHH! This is awesome!
Lol! Arby's back in business for a day!
Is anyone able to watch this out of market? Extra Innings is blacked out because of FOX's game of the week.
I'm in network so I haven't had to try any of these links, but there are a few to watch the game online in this thread: http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/ot-tigers-baseball-live-stream
i even tried the recommended streams and they arent working so im just listening to it on MLB.com
(on TV). Tigers Fans in Siberia thank you.
Hope Douglas is okay.
Please nothing serious for Fister, please nothing serious for Fister.
Love the box score today. Tigers had 5 pitchers today and all have season ERAs of 0.00.
did a great job coming in cold. He might be the one to take Fister's spot in the rotation.
Big game tomorrow going for the sweep to start off the season. Obviously just 1 of 162, but getting wins at home with our 3-5 pitchers is what we need this year. The first chance is tomorrow.
It doesn't seem like much, but it IS a great way to start the season and a good mentality to have
Fister to 15-day DL effective Sunday, with a left costochondral strain. Brayan Villarreal to be recalled from Toledo. #Tigers
That's a bummer. He pitched a good game!
Cabrera 2 homers!
Fielder 2 homers!
Avila 1 homer!
This is going to be an insane year!
How many times are we going to get back to back homers with Cabrera and Fielder this year!?
is 6 by teammates in the same season...I would say they can get to 8 or 9 realistically if they both stay healthy.
Was at CoPa for the game today. Incredible. One of the best atmospheres of a game I've been to. Probably helped it was the second game of the season and against the Red Sox. But still great. Fans were into the game all the way through.
