I know we like to only have game threads when they lose so we can bitch at Jim Leyland (I keed, I keed), but how about them Tigers?
Tied with the tribe right now in the 7th. If they pull this game out, I'm ready to give us the division.
As I write that, DKB (Donny Kelly Baby for you plebes) gets to third on a double + error!
And...Leyland strands him at third!
Leyland struck out? Pretty sure that was Santiago.
Need some Ramon magic here, impressive stuff from Salazar tonight.
That third strike was garbage.
I do not like Al Albequerque.
Ya I don't like seeing Al in low scoring games right now, and with a runner now on third can he even throw the slider considering it can be wild pitch city.
Now that the bullpen has settled in, they Tigers are everything we thought they would be. And to think a majority of this run has been accomplished without Miggy and Infante. ALAS!
Yeah, I wouldn't have minded seeing Rondon there. Possible reasons for Al Al:
1. He had good numbers against the guys coming up.
2. It's a tie game and we're the away team, meaning this game could go extras and we want to save Rondon/Veras.
I hope the tigers crush Indians hearts again, last 2 games have been delicious.
I really, really dislike Albuquerque.
Thanks for the jinx. /s
Yep, no denying it.
Good job by Smyly to limit the damage.
Here's to hoping Chris Perez gets in the game!
Way to fuck it up asshole
(directed at OP for ruining everything by making this thread)
((No sarcasm at all))
(((unless the Tigers come back to win)))
Robots have feelings too.
Talk about an awful strike zone tonight yeesh...
Well, so much for JV regaining his velocity last night. This is the most trumped up radar gun I've seen all year.
If Cabrera hits a go-ahead homer here... I just don't know. Tribe fan tears....
I love you?????
YOU ARE FORGIVEN.

Wow, thanks. We need you on more UM open threads.
I struggle dealing with the asshattery in M game threads. However, I will sacrifice for the team if needed.
Why do they pitch to him?
does Miggy know how to smash a soul dong or what?
I just went ape-shit in my apartment.
Best. Hitter. Ever.
0-3 with 3 k's and what does he do? HE SHITS ON YOUR FUCKING OVER SEASON!
3 k's his first 3 ab's then a no doubter to center.......WAR be damned, best player in baseball.
0-3 with three strike outs, but on 4 AB hits a homer.
Greatness, mother fuckers.
I like having Miggy on our team.
I'll be happy if Cleveland wins, but let's be honest. The Tribe is not making the playoffs this year.
Watching that dugout is so much fun. This team is so, so good.
That was awesome.
Games like these against Cleveland, in their house, goddamn. Can you imagine how that feels on the other side, daggers mang, daggers
Country strong, Miggy. Country strong.
guys. go tigers.
I was about to turn the game off when Al did what I expected, but when I saw your thread I thought I'd join the group despair. Otherwise I'd have missed Cabrera's wonderworks.
Love the replay of someone in the dugout making fun of Salazar for giving the pop-up signal on Miggy's HR. Everyone knew it was gone except for him.
Hmmm.... interesting Leyland's not going to Veras....
Wanted him to get Brantley? Horrible base running from Brantley too, how do you not score on that?
Smyly gettin rocked
Rondon? Well. Lets see how he handles the pressure
103 you kidding me
Buh-bye Ryan Raburn.
That Cleveland gun is definitely trumped up though haha.
That's what I figured they'd do.
Perhaps that had reason to believe Rondon would get the K. Perhaps they didn't want to risk a walk with the bases loaded. It's always an overlooked thing that when you load the bases you are forcing your pitcher to pitch closer to the zone.
Guy would have been window dressing at first. His run wouldn't matter and the Tigers could then play for the double play. smh
