I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)
OT: Tigers vs. Angels
A walk?! Geez, Verlander is losing it. Trade him now.
that verlander is doing just dont
very carefully. Even though somebody already said it in the other thread that was created.
Someone else used the impermissible words.
sharp. Nothing more. Silence...
When Magglio hit that ball, my first thought was that he got too far around on it and yanked it foul.
hit it as well. Good to see Magglio go deep. He has been hitting well from an average standpoint since coming back, but hadn't shown much power.
Me too, and why was Weaver staring him down as he rounded 2nd and 3rd? Not like Magglio was standing at the plate admiring his work.
I think that was more because he wasn't sure if it was going to be fair or not. Weaver is probably just shocked that somebody actually scored off of him, with the way he has been pitching.
Man, at this rate Verlander might pitch a no-hitter.
I think this is funny. Come on. We have no bearing on JV's hitter or no hitter.
Sharp through 5.
EDIT: DAMNIT, AQUAMAN, take that down. The wrath from high atop the thing...
No hits through 5 for Verlander....something great might be ahead.
That's the opposite of what you're supposed to do, Aqua...
If by chance he gives up a hit, I'm guessing he's going to blame aquaman2342 on the mgoboard for blowing it.
No, he'll simply share the opinion of everyone else on this board- that you are a tool.
Because I don't believe in a silly superstition? Well if that's the case I'm a full box of tools then.
That's correct Charlie, you're really picking up on this, Im proud of you buddy...
Yeah this is a little overboard. Aquaman is a tool for doing nothing to the mystical balance of no hitters?
Now it's definitely not going to happen. Way to go man. You blew it for everyone.
/Post hoc ergo prompter hoc
However he didn't actually say it. By reading the signs he posted you say it in your head, so isn't that kinda like saying it? To some people those voices inside your head are real, just saying.
At least the date in that picture isn't today's date. That would definitely ruin it.
Chris Narveson for Milwaukee....no-hitter through 2.
EDIT: Perfect through 3
today as well. One mistake to Magglio is the difference at this point.
#Tigers jawing with Weaver. Maggs said something to him after flying out and Weaver m-f'd him. Loving this

Edit: Off topic, but I just saw that some source is reporting Wandy Rodriguez of the Astros to Cleveland for a couple of prospects. This makes me sigficantly more nervous as a Tigers fan if true, both those guys together give them a big boost to their staff.
I think both of those guys (Jimenez and Wandy) have their best pitching behind them. Just a gut feeling on that one.
Why did you JINX it
Also, heard that Justice rumor too. Indians dealing a lot of fine prospects, and getting some decent players in return. If they get Ubaldo and Wandy Rodriguez, that's terrifying
Only six more outs
Rodriguez to Cleveland is not happening now. On a side note Carlos Guillen just jacked one out.
Weaver and the Tigers are really barking at each other. He just got thrown out of the game, smooth move throwing at somebody's head. Didn't like the way Guillen posed, but come on Weaver don't throw up near a dude's head, that is completely classless. Think this all started with Weaver barking at Ordonez after his HR, which IMO was unwarranted.
Apparently streaming ESPN radio will switch to the Tigers game if they get bored talking about Plaxico Burress or if there's something more interesting going on.
I think it just got a little hotter in comerica park.
Jared Weaver is a bitch...that was ridiculous
There was no need for carlos to admire that home run. The angels are already being humilated by verlander. He doesnt need to rub it in. As Rod said, he aimmed at the head but he knew he wasnt going to hit him. It was just to send a message.
Agree, and not removing Carlos from any blame, but you don't throw at the head...drill the arm or somewhere else if you need to
If a pitcher can pump his fists after a strikeout, why can't batter admire a home run?
If you're going to be a pussy like that, at least aim for the back. Going for the head is just stupid.
"It is dangerous to throw at the head, because inside the head is the brain."
Well as much as you can't throw at someone's head, if I'm Alex Avila I am going back and and kicking Guillen's ass. Act like you've hit a home run before and don't put your teammates in danger.
that this all started when Weaver was barking at Ordonez after his HR. I didn't like Guillen's pose at all, but Weaver is basically the one who started the dialog by barking at Ordonez earlier and than finishes by coming up near a guy's head.
You pussy. Avila wasnt in danger. Weaver is a big league pitcher and just threw in the area, intent wasnt to make contact with Avila's head.
And like other posters said, Guillen did that after Weaver called Ordonez a motherfucker.
his intent was, you don't throw it near a guy's head, period end of story. You're an idiot if you don't understand that. Even big league pitchers don't have impeccable control, regardless of his intent if he misses his spot by a 6 inches or so, you risk hitting the guy in head.
Go tell Avila he wasn't in danger, when he had a ball come that close to his head. I guarantee he would give you a different response and you must have missed the part where I said Weaver started the hostility between the teams.
Did anyone else see him dropping f-bombs all over the place when he got tossed? Classless.
Weaver showing that a short temper runs in the family.
Not smart on Weaver's part to throw at the head, but I think ti was fairly obvious that he wasn't trying to hit Avila, he was trying to throw it over his head. But that was a bitch move by Guillen. I agree with FhsHockey, act like you've been there before.
anywhere near a guy's head. Even a guy with Weavers' control could miss his spot and end up drilling the guy in the head without meaning to.
Which is why I said not smart. Still, if I were Avila, I'd have some major beef with Weaver and Guillen.
you shouldnt throw it at a persons numbers which is what i always hear as the phrase. You'd be just as likely to leave it up and get the head
