OT - Tigers Night Game 09/29

3 runs so far may be enough with Verlander on the mound. That double by Ordonez (with two on, something no one could do earlier today) makes me really wish that Leyland had played him earlier today. Little by little I am losing faith in Jim's management...

Ordonez hasn't started a game against a right-handed pitcher in many moons. He's been doing so well because of the favorable match ups Leyland has been playing him to. Still nice to see a big hit with two outs as the first game today was unbearable to watch in those situations.

People who "bag on Leyland" actually watch the games. He didn't "turn them around." He went along for the ride with a very good team that made the World Series, then really, really underperformed the next two years. And the only reason they're still in first place year is the dreadful division. This team would be 3rd or 4th place in almost every division. And we've lost too many games because of his questionable decisions, which are usually by-the-book. Don't get me wrong, I really want to see him and this team win, but he really isn't a good manager at this point in his career.

Never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never never count out the damn Twinkies, until the final out. Sheesh. That damn Denard Span single was typical Minnesota.

We go against Pavano tomorrow. So......let's just say we damn well better win on Thursday. I said before the series I'd be happy with a split and I'm sticking to it. As soon as Minny leaves Detroit, they get to say hi to Zack Greinke.
