Yea, we are not going to get a 5 homer game once a week
I didn't necessarily mean that exact stat line, I meant more so taking a team to the wood shed, you know, getting a confident win.
Go Max, show us where you left off last post-season. Get well soon Douglas.
Happy easter to you too. I'm looking forward to seeing what prince does as per usual.
162-0. Callin' it.
Team looks great early. Pitching and defense are going to be an issue all year. Cabby is not a good defensive 3B - not even average - but his bat more than makes up for it. Should be a fun year. I love how Prince and Cabby have already become friends. Sounds silly, but I really can't wait for NEXT season when Victor comes back. That is going to be an all-time great season if we can stay healthy and Leyland doesn't retire or get run out of town by idiots.
He looked good on that diving catch yesterday. Even though he didn't need to dive and it was a weak liner hit two feet away from him.
I did and it wasn't even close to a "great" play. He made a play that is routine for his position. That is expected. He didn't even have to move for that ball. The only reason Cabby played 1B for us in the first lpace is because when he came on he made 5 errors in 5 games and Leyland put him at 1B. Cabby may cost us a few games on D, but he will win us many more than that with his bat.
Saying pitching is going to be an issue is a pretty vague statement. Every team has to shuffle starters throughout the season. Of all teams, I'd say we're in pretty great shape all things considered with a few decent prospects in the minors. I hope they're just being pro active with Fister and looking at this from a season long prospective.
Eh, it'll be interesting what happens with V-Mart. I'm not so sure at his age that this will be a smooth recovery and even if it is, I don't know if the Tigers will want to keep him or trade him away. If they do keep him, it will be interesting to see how he produces but if he does close to how he does last year the you're right adding him to Cabby and Prince will be insane
caution about only 2 games in apply, but Jackson looks like a new player. Patient at the plate, not trying to do too much. If he has a great year, we will score a lot of runs with what comes behind him.
He seems to really be seeing the ball well so far.
Leyland going to Toledo tomorrow to watch Casey Crosby pitch. I'm a big fan of Crosby's, more so than Oliver or Smyly. Electric stuff. Maybe we'll see him in a spot start should he perform admirably tomorrow
I hope not...
Yeah it would really suck if every day this summer a bunch of Tigers fans had a thread for each tigers game and you would actually have to spend .025 seconds reading it, realizing you're not interested in it, and deciding just not to click on it.
Good luck man, gonna be a rough summer.
This is my thing with MMA and NBA threads too. Everytime an MMA thread or an NBA thread is made multiple dickwipes have to come in and let us know they don't like the sport as if anyone who likes the sport cares.
Don't click on a clearly titled thread name. Ok, champ?
Gotta love the first couple weeks when MLB Extra Innings is free! Down in Charleston, S.C., I actually get to watch Fox Sports Detroit for the games.
Hit 'em where they a'int, Tiggies.
but Jackson looks really really good
This is the first time that I've caught the Tigers this year, and WOW I am impressed. Our lineup is dangerous 1-9, and Jackson seems to really have developed. Gotta love Fielder and Cabrera, power hitters who can still find the infield holes.
Anyone have a good link to the live stream? Firstrowsports.eu seems to be having issues with it today.
Great start again today, Jackson fouling off pitches then pulling a double. If him and Boesch can hit all season than good lord this lineup could be unstoppable.
Hell of a first inning.
This board is getting clogged up by way too many OT posts. Do we really need a topic that says nothing but "Go Tigers".
It's almost full offseason after the spring game next week, many more OT posts will follow. Not a whole lot besides baseball going on, I'm not sure how this hurts the board in any way, shape, or form.
Specifically what kind of off topic to on topic ratio would you like to see?
Also 3 post softball threads with misleading titles are getting old.
I'm not a hater but I'd have to agree on this one point
So, with approximately 80 replies a day, with 162 games, you want ONE "Go, Tigers" post?
Did you take your math courses up in EL?
Nick Punto leading off over Ellsbury? Bobby V is comedy.
Not looking great
He is laboring big time, they needed innings out of him today too since Fister's start was cut short yesterday but man he is in a funk right now,
We're getting bad Max, not Mad Max today. The bats better be able to keep up.
That balk was dogshit.
Finally. My god that was a horrible outing!!
Josh Beckettesque. Without the long balls.
A Jack has to be the MVP for this opening series.
Jackson has performed well so far! He switched his front foot on his swing! Good for him!
The only other time he has pitched against Boston, he had a similar result that he did today. He's been inconsistent most of the time he's been in Detroit. Will probably have an ERA between 4-5 this year. Luckily with our offense, that could be good for 15 wins. I think one of Porcello or Scherzer will get traded before the season is over.
Porcello hasn't even pitched yet. And it's only been one start for Scherzer too
Whoever has season tickets for the Tigers has gotten their money's worth so far. Incredible first 3 games. Amazing. Going to be a fun season!!!
covered but damn! Not a fan of the new tigers chick. At all.
I'm biased because I went to school with one of the other candidates and was pulling for her. But I don't really like any of them.
Too many comments about the tigers on this tigers post
This team is going to be FUN to watch this year...
Hit deep! Off the wall
GONE GONE OGONE
Home run derby, bitch. Lmao Red Sox. Great effort by Tigers! What a dangerous lineup.
WOW. Perfect time for that!
Wow. Avila. Hell yes.
I can't wait to see the highlight of that one. Damn
What a game
Greatest five hour baseball game ever...
what a shame... that's really to bad Red Sox nation. Buckle up Tiger fans, we are in for a hell of a ride.
Can we start the playoffs tomorrow?
What a creative and fun way to lose!
Holy shit, unreal, just unreal. Happy Easter everyone!!!
When was the last time a pitcher won two games in two days. That can't be common.
how many times does a team have two blown saves in the same game?
See World Series 2011. Poor Texas.
need to have some beer in their clubhouse tonight. Melancon is pure kerosene.
Now to cool down with what could be a great finish at The Masters. Such a rough week in sports.
like I said earlier, 162-0!
Tigers are legit this year! EASILY win the AL Central and should win the world series!
174-0 after they win the World Series...LOL
175 if you consider the Tigers having all 9 starters in the all-star game plus the starting pitcher. And winning.
"The Red Sox and New York Yankees are both off to 0-3 starts -- the first time that's happened since 1966, according to STATS LLC."
Does that warm anyone else's heart?
Oh, and ESPN has its lead story for the next several hours. YANKEES! RED SOX!
Great comeback, couldn't believe what i was hearing on the radio at work
Wow, he wasn't supposed to be on the starting roster, gets called up because of an injury, gets put into game one because of an injury; don't look now but Duane Below is 2-0.
He's on pace for 108 wins. I think he's got a shot!!
that is all
I was at Comerica for this game. I had a really sweet seat.... birthday present to myself. Thank you, Tigers, for making my birthday so awesome!
