Hopefully this game will last a little longer than last night's.  Lets go tigres!

So, does Leyland stick with Inge?  Perhaps through his first AB and then as long as the game permits to stick with the defensive advantage?  I would let Inge hit his first AB and then take it from there.  If Inge can stay in the game and not come up to bat in a big situation, I'd rather have his glove in there.

Not sure if this was answered in another thread but is there any way Verlander can go tomorrow? I'd rather have Scherzer pitching at home.

be rooting for the Yankees any more blatantly?

 

Fister looks good...what an amazing pitcher he has been for us.

 

And i cannot believe how many empty seats there are in that stadium!

What's up with the whining about the announcers constantly?  The only thing I've noticed of them is how they are (rightfully) all over Fister's domination of the Yankees thus far.

We need to get a baserunner this inning and get something going, though.

A.  Does TBS still do Braves games.

B.  If they do, they should at least know how to put on a decent broadcast.  Hell use the damn Braves announcers for all I care.  At least they know what they're doing.

C.  I'm pretty sure TBS stopped doing Braves games a few years ago.  I'm just drunk.

I don't know why, probably because I'm drunk, but I expected Granderson just to try to throw that home and Avila to make it in time.  Didn't even think about that whole cut-off man thing.

Probably about 10.  I'm not thrilled about the decision, but TBS didn't show a good shot of Avila running the bases so we can't be sure it was totally his fault.

The announcers were saying that Avila let up at some point.  Also, didn't expect that throw to get cut.

Also, again, it was great baserunning to get those runners to second and third despite the cutoff right next to second.

That said, Y U NO SCORE RUN TIGERS??
