Fister is on the mound. Hopefully he can get at least 7 in and leave with a comfortable lead. Hate this bullpen already.
Top of the first: Tigers already up 1-0
knock in Jackson btw. Here is a stream if you're not able to watch on TV:
Fister is so fun to watch when he's clicking. Great arsenal and knows the art of pitching
He likes to keep it moving without much rest. Makes for a much shorter game.
Fox sports graphic is pissing me off tonight. Must be technical difficulites with no pitch count or Balls and strikes!
Seriously, I know Mario says the count after every pitch but damnit I want to see for myself.
The top 4 in the lineup are something to behold right now, obviously having 3 guys hitting .390 and above is unrealistic but it's still amazing to see what this team can do, especially if V-Mart starts to come around.
Also, didn't we get him from Seattle?
Fister... He has some unbelieveable stuff... Props to Dombrowski and the scouts for seeing the potential in him. Love watching him pitch. If only I felt the same way about the bullpen.
For those of you that haven't read this you probably should, as Hokemaniac said credit to the front office for seeing in Doug what others didn't.
Ahh thought that was gonna get out for V-mart.
Bring Victor home!
Jim Price had to break out the Yellahammer to describe Fister's curve tonight
Ah yes the old "Art of Pitching"
WMU? Nice area.
2-1 Seattle. Fister needs to take a deep breath and keep those pitches from moving to the middle of the plate. He'll be okay.
Miggy hits a shot to center. Tigers back on top 3-2
Terbush is warming up to come in.
Torii Hunter has been a difference-maker for this team. I expected him to provide a spark, but he leads the AL in hits?! Didn't expect that this early.
Tight game, looking like we'll get another chance to see what our bullpen is made of. That closer situation makes me nervous in every game like this.
Man Avila is struggling thus far in the early season, we need him to get that short swing going.
Avila has literally struggled since 2011.
I agree. Maybe it's the fact that he is a hard worker, or the standard quality for the catcher position is so low throughout the mlb, but it seems like he gets an extreme amount of love considering his dwindling production.
He's reputed to call a hell of a game. He also caught 140 games last year. I think he'll come around again.
The ascension of Austin Jackson continues, what a great fucking AB.
Back to back walks with the sacks juiced gonna make me breathe a little easier heading to the ninth. Tigers up 6 to 2.
Tigers win 6 - 2
Benoit gets them 1-2-3 in the ninth.
