Anybody have a stream for the game tonight? I really want to see Scherzer's debut...
OT: Tigers vs. Royals stream
I'm sure FSN has some sort of stupid contract obligation to show the Pistons and Red Wings today and have a join on the Tigers, but come on! Make it available somehow!
Yeah this is killing me. I have no interest in watching the Pistons continue to fight for a better draft pick.
FSN is going show the last hour of the game at the end of the pistons or wings game
What is really odd to me is that FSN is picking up the Tigers game AFTER the red wings game is over. I can't think of the last time something like this happened. They usually either show or down't show the game - they don't usually just cut in like this. Usually they put it on FSN+ which is channel 900 on comcast.
Another odd this is that the red wings have already locked up a playoff spot - where as the tigers just started and people are probably more interested to watch them. Maybe I'm wrong but it just seems like an odd choice.
the pistons are already on FSN+, so they ran out of channels. i guess for April in the D we'll need a FSN++
If it helps, Scherzer has yet to give up a hit
Max has plunked two and walked one, but those have been the only base runners thus far.
EDIT: Welp there goes the no-no. Honestly its probably better this way as there won't be any problem yanking him when his pitch count gets up.
Its channel 780 for me. I'm out of market though, so it might be blacked out for anyone in the Detroit area. Its worth checking out though. Have a little pitchers dual going on right now.
What is everyone's favorite verison of the April in the D song?? I'm going with the original one
Jeez, Jason Kendall of all people broke up the no-hitter after Scherzer hit another batter. But an excellent performance in his Tigers debut so far. Now if we could just score some runs...
Excellent starting pitching but an inability to manufacture runs to support it.
Yep, and this is with what's essentially our best offensive lineup. Who knows, though? Their bullpen is pretty shakey, maybe we can bust through again later.
doesn't give up a slam right now.
Lucky for us he didn't. He's got one or two more innings left in him, I think, then we'll see how our pen does again. Hopefully we'll be seeing Valverde, too.
That year didn't he have the lowest run support of any starting pitcher in the MLB?
Which is a shame, because I think with a few wins to back up his performance, we might all have a different opinion of him. My opinion NOW is "capable of getting it done regularly". 5 or 6 more wins that year might have me thinking "Very likely to get it done."
Wings just knotted up the game at 2 with a PPG, about 12:00 left in the 3rd. Hopefully it doesn't go to OT so we can see the end of this game.
in under 2 min
just came up in the gamecast, and I'm telling you, every time I see it, my first thought is, "What's Curtis Granderson doing there?" The two look alike! They've both got that big smile, and they both seem to chomp on gum at the plate the same way.
Fucked that up quickly.
Johnny Damon's day so far: groundout, strikeout, double play. Hopefully he'll have more games like the opener and not this one
This is worse than another post about a dead Wolverine. FML.
the pitching efforts are excellent, but I'm starting to think it must just be one of those days when balls won't fly no matter what.
This could go to extra innings at 0-0.
Wings win 4-3, now let's have some baseball, FSD
We can't get a run, and the bullpen screws up. I hope this isn't a telling sign for the coming season. Scherzer had a great outing, and you never want to get shut out by the Royals.
UM alum Chris Getz gets it done for KC, but let's hope our offense doesn't let that be the winning run
I know the park is mostly empty, but when they pulled Hochevar, about 4 people stood up for an ovation.
When your pitcher throws 7 and 2/3rds innings of shutout ball, you stand your ass up!
That kind of a pitching performance should get an applause out of visiting crowds. For them to not stand up at home is shitty.
HR Miggy! Right off the foul pole.
When I saw it go past the outfielder I immediately said "THAT HIT THE POLE THATS GONE!" Good job Miguel!
Two fantastic ABs in a row by Sizemore and Santiago.
What an awesome at bat by Santiago
Back to their old ways... Not getting runs in from 3rd with less than 2 outs. Lets hope we get a timely hit here.
line drives to LF this game?
if you please, those are the times when your big, veteran bat is supposed to make the difference for our team.
Where did you put your big, veteran bat? You know, the one you had yesterday?
He should get his doctorate in something and go to play for a dome team. Then we can call it "The Angry Dome".
Good, aggressive base running!
Rod really needs to get off Farnsworth's nuts. Yes, he throws the ball 99mph, but it's in a straight line, and he has sucked everywhere he's gone.
Seriously. He's given up one run with no outs this season. His ERA is a divide by zero problem.
Divide by ZeroHHHH SHIT!
I'm willing to bet 1 mgopoint that Laird makes no contact in this AB. Any takers?
EDIT: I lost that bet, he popped out to shallow left.
Who hates baseball that they came through here negging every single post by everybody?
Fill in the blank:
EDIT: I realize he has negative points, but I just assume all trolls have multiple accounts. I also went through and +1ed everyone to offset the phantom -1er.
Valverde effs it up.
But Valverde and his "antics" just got put on notice.
Well that went south rather quickly.
Well, it seems as if the Tigers are still without a legit closer. Fantastic. Way to crap the bed and squander a victory, guys.
It's the second game of the year
Rivera, Nathan, Papelbon, Broxton, Hoffman, not a single one. Who cares about Valverde's Career 3.16 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, 167 saves, and 10.9 K/9, he is an atrocity.
Sorry about the vitriol, but I hate when people put too much emphasis on one thing in baseball almost as much as I hate Buckeyes or Spartans.
Can we please sign Jon papplebon, Mariano Rivera, and K-Rod? /in my dreams
Are you sure you want Paplebon? He just blew another save tonight.
This is why I didn't mind Lindstrom and Brandon Lyon as replacements to Valverde in Houston. Just as rough, much cheaper.
