Don't forget his stellar defense either
Don't forget his stellar defense either
Just flipped to UW vs Stanford. I can't wait for the christmas tree helmet to die.
And here it comes.
Won't end well
Ugh our pen is garbage? I hate my life
We are fucked
FUCK THIS NIGHT
We have to score runs, and early. We need our closer to go out so we just have to hold a lead.
Meant our starter going out...
By a team whose DH is Seth Smith. Seth freaking Smith.
Still keep instinctively thinking he's the Michigan PR/KR from the mid-90s...
What are we doing? Why load the bases?
Force out at home.
You're not alone. I don't get it either.
Sets up the force out everywhere.
Ensures a force out at home instead of eating the ball to load the bases and stop the run from scoring.
and providing below average fielding. Not good.
Now we bring in porcello... Worth a shot
Someone who is smart- why wouldn't Rick come in to start the 8th? We would have a guy who can give us multiple innings until we can get a run.
The Tigers have been held scoreless in 33 of their last 34 innings.
You don't say?
Shouldn't have gone back to AlAl for the 9th. You got two big strikeouts, call that a win.
Tigers need to find some offense in Motown. I can see us going 35 straight scoreless innings, unfortunately.
So you're close.
I'm talking about adding 18 more scoreless to the last 17 we've had. 35 scoreless to close the series as we lose 2 more 1-0 games at home. Unfortunately, with the way we're swinging, that's quite possible.
That would be disaster considering how "great" we hit as a team during the season.
I know. I hate hearing that we led the majors in batting average or scored so many runs. This team was held to 3 or less in over 60 games this season. We also scored more than 10 or more 18 times!!! This team seems to be all or nothing most of the time and right now they're scuffling. Hopefully some home cooking gets them going, but if Santa wants to give an early present, a new groin/abdomen for Miggy would be nice.
Well fuck everything.
Fantastic. We have to win Monday.
Got a split on the road. I'll take it.
FUCK A DUCK
Damn. Wasted a gem by Verlander.
Only if they had won this game! This team has not been able to hit the past month! I doubt they will win this series now!
JV gives up 3 fuckin hits and we can't win. Jesus.
Did the A's win the world series or a game in the ALDS?
Take it easy, it's only the second time they've seen the team all year.
What does this mean?
This the first time you've seen a playoff bandwagon?
I think he was talking about how the actual team started celebrating on the field like there was champagne ready and waiting for them to pop in the clubhouse.
Depressing game. Verlander pitches a gem and we can't plate a single fucking run. 3 if our 4 hits were of the infield variety that's quite telling how bad we were tonight.
and to add to it 2 of those 3 were by don kelly a reserve who should not play most nights so i thought i add a littlke more to the disappointment
to second guess this, offense is what it is, if we don't get extra basehits, we don't win. ran into a good pitcher. should not have started Al in the 9th, like someone said above, he gave you two big outs in the 8th, should have started the 9th with someone else. coming back to motown.
Momentum doesn't exist in baseball, Scherzer certainly showed that in game 1.
well. fucking awesome. i've been defending this offense so much the last few weeks, but this is ridiculous, and I cannot any more. We haven't hit a home run in 7 games. Absolutely pathetic.
Since Alex Avila's first inning single off two gloves to plate the 3rd run of the inning in Game 1 the Tigers are batting 10 for 58 or .172
Since clinching the AL Central the Tigers are batting .189 with 39 hits in 159 AB's, even taking into account the complete meaningles nature of the Miami series and getting no-hit, this is pathetic.
What a total waste of Verlander's talent. If you can't score runs and the relief pitchers suck then it doesn't really matter who the starting pitcher. They should have had Don Kelly pitch and save Verlander for when it may have mattered. Either that or they are going to have to throw complete games and screw the ptich count.
