Game 2009.014: Tigers at Angels

PREGAME: Tonight it will be lefty Joe Saunders taking on Justin Verlander. Verlander is coming off a remarkable start in Seattle where he was pretty much untouchable except for an awful 5th inning. Still, his velocity, command, and breaking ball were encouraging.

Saunders has only fanned 7 batters in 20.2 innings with 6 walks and 2 HBPs but he’s posting a nice 2.18 ERA because he’s only allowed 13 hits so far.

The Tigers will send out:

  1. Granderson, CF
  2. Polanco, 2B
  3. Ordonez, DH
  4. Cabrera, 1B
  5. Guillen, LF
  6. Laird, C
  7. Inge, 3B
  8. Raburn, RF
  9. Everett, SS

  1. Anyone have a link to what the Mud Hens and Zumaya did/are doing tonight?

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 9:31 pm

  2. JL didn’t waste any time getting Raburn in the lineup, did he?

    by Tbone on Apr 22, 2009 at 9:32 pm

  3. I don’t get it. What’s wrong with Ramon Santiago?

    by mcb. on Apr 22, 2009 at 9:34 pm

  4. For Zumaya: 1 IP, 1 hit, 2 Ks, 18 pitches, 13 strikes

  5. Oh, nice, I had no idea there was MiLB gameday. Glad Zoom is looking good, we could use his 2006 self.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 9:40 pm

  6. Zumaya is ready for the Yanks
    http://www.freep.com/article/2.....ges+95+mph

    “I’m ready to face those Yankees,” he said. “I know they’re coming to town.”

    by Dylan on Apr 22, 2009 at 9:56 pm

  7. rough deal for marcus, eh?

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:05 pm

  8. Does anyone know why Thames is not in this lineup?

    by kjw on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:09 pm

  9. He’s hurt, look at the next article down.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:10 pm

  10. I just noticed the injury line below…….what happened?

    by kjw on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:10 pm

  11. Nice rip by Polanco!

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:12 pm

  12. didn’t waste any time getting on the board!

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:13 pm

  13. well ain’t that a hoot?

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:15 pm

  14. well, that really puts a downer on a perfectly good start. good job cabrera.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:18 pm

  15. Wow, Magglio sure looked safe to me.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:19 pm

  16. Magglio was safe. Bad call. Verlander shaking off Laird and throwing all fastballs again.

    by mcb. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:21 pm

  17. He can throw all the fastballs he wants right now if he can locate it. He better switch it up the second time around this time, though.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:24 pm

  18. …and he can’t.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:28 pm

  19. The high pitch counts are just ridiculous at this point.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:31 pm

  20. curveball looks WAY off according to game day.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:31 pm

  21. i’m wondering if there’s something wrong with jv that hasn’t been found. maybe he has an anxiety issue too?

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:32 pm

  22. Unreal. Verlander Strikes Again.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:32 pm

  23. seriously. 30+ pitches in the 1st inning? Bring in the Zach Attack.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:33 pm

  24. and blowing a 2-0 lead. ZACH!

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:33 pm

  25. Justin. Give me a *#$&ing break.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:33 pm

  26. oh man

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:33 pm

  27. Good 36 pitching Inning, JV.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:34 pm

  28. Why can’t Verlander even get reasonable defense behind him?

    by billfer on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:34 pm

  29. 36 pitches. Blown 2 run lead. Really? Something’s up with that boy.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:35 pm

  30. Not Justin’s fault. He had pitched three outs – Raburn’s “allowed hit,” contributed a lot to this.

    by Adam on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:35 pm

  31. @ adam: sure it’s his fault. who else’s would it be?

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:37 pm

  32. @Russ: Look in right field.

    by Adam on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:38 pm

  33. Not to mention the Angels have been patient both nights (and fouled off nine in JV’s first). Armando only lasted five innings last night and I think he got good defense.

    by amason on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:38 pm

  34. What is it with there being no defense behind Verlander in all of his starts and then Verlander having a meltdown? I am so sick of this crap. I’m beginning to wonder if Verlander will ever be right. Looks like Saunders is getting settled in. This game looks a lot like last night already….

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:39 pm

  35. can’t only have gameday. if it’s the wind he has to know how to adjust. which looks like saunders is able to do.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:41 pm

  36. Tigers pitching can’t adjust….Angels pitching can….that is the trend I am picking up here….

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:42 pm

  37. Verlander didn’t have good command that inning which was a part of the pitch count problem. The other problem was needing 4 outs.

    by billfer on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:42 pm

  38. CCS’ ERA after 4 starts last year: 13.50.

    CCS’ ERA when he was traded: 3.83.

    I guess we can hope.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:43 pm

  39. i’m telling you. verlnader ain’t right. i disagree that he’s had any quality starts. and i do think he’s had a decent amount of support behind him. no excuses for a full lousy year and a seriously bad start. something’s wrong.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:43 pm

  40. Come on guys, it’s been one inning. Where’s that fightin’ spirit we used to have? Everyone’s so darn fatalistic.

    by Adam on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:43 pm

  41. Verlander will probably settle in…but will the offense be able to pick him up at all? I have my doubts after last night….

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:43 pm

  42. Typical baseball game if you ask me.

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:45 pm

  43. Wow…..this is really looking like last night….No quick innings for our pitching…. The angles are working on schooling us again…just like the last 7 years.

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:45 pm

  44. @adam: basing my judgment on the horrible starts from a season ago and the clear lack of improvement thus far. Not basing it on one inning.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:46 pm

  45. Weaver pitched awesome last night. Only made 2 bad pitches, both to Granderson.

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:47 pm

  46. @Mr. X: true that.

    by Russ on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:49 pm

  47. Jim just grabbed the nicotine-infused sunflower seeds. We’re good to go now.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:50 pm

  48. honestly
    JV is the definition of enigma

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:50 pm

  49. Inge would of caught that ball.

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:53 pm

  50. Looks like Grandy was safe there. Hopefully it won’t hurt us too much.

    And it did…

    Sorta…

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:53 pm

  51. Good job getting back to first, Maggs, the streak is still alive.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 10:55 pm

  52. Viva Venezuela!

    by billfer on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:01 pm

  53. Nice hitting. Those errors are killer.

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:01 pm

  54. Now can Verlander get his crap in line…

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:03 pm

  55. JV lets go!@

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:04 pm

  56. Raburn is cracking me up out there.

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:06 pm

  57. I’m firing Raburn.

    by Adam on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:07 pm

  58. Rayburn, you’re killin me…

    by Slick from Sinfest on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:07 pm

  59. So, Verlander got 3 quick outs that inning. Too bad Raburn blew it.

    by billfer on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:08 pm

  60. rayburn must have caught verlander hitting on his old laday or something …which may be the only thing he caught!!!!!

    by jimcip on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:08 pm

  61. Rayburn looks terrible. Good god.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:08 pm

  62. Thank you Guillen….

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:11 pm

  63. Wow…5 pitch inning…way to work him guys…

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:14 pm

  64. Then Verlander fires back with a 6 pitch inning. Nice.

    by ouchudied on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:20 pm

  65. 3rd time around for Saunders. Time to knock him out.

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:21 pm

  66. JV now has 24 Ks in 20 IP. And an 8.10 ERA.

    Baseball is a funny sport.

    by Kyle J on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:21 pm

  67. Granderson !!! HOMERUN!

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:23 pm

  68. Nice Grandy….Now if we can just pile it on and hold on.

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:23 pm

  69. Was that an inside the park HR? Gamecast says it didn’t quite get out.

    by Anson on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:24 pm

  70. Go Go Granderson

    It made it out.

    by Nick S on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:24 pm

  71. About 3 feet deep and 3 feet west of the foul pole.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:27 pm

  72. Look at that Curtis ‘nothing more than a platoon player’ Granderson go and smack the snot out of that offering by a lefty.

    Atta boy Curtis!

    by greg on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:28 pm

  73. …We aren’t going to lose the lead already, are we???

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:32 pm

  74. ….What an absolute joke…GET RABURN OUT OF THERE!!! AND VERLANDER!!! gah!

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:35 pm

  75. u h oh

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:35 pm

  76. I’m done watching this crap….. Verlander is broken…..

    by Brenden on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:37 pm

  77. wow

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:38 pm

  78. looks like we acquired jason tyner from the brewers for nothing…sending him to toledo.

    by charlie on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:38 pm

  79. Verlander has stopped dominating hitters, and by a long shot. So long, Ace, we barely knew ya.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:39 pm

  80. One more fail of a start and something has to be done to Verlander. This is ridiculous.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:43 pm

  81. I’m about ready to use the B word with Verlander. What a bum.

    by Ryan on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:45 pm

  82. How many outs did Raburn give up? I’m watching it on gamecast.

    by ouchudied on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:45 pm

  83. Verlander was just leaving his pitches up in the middle of the plate. He’s still getting good movement though. We’re only down by 2 runs. I’d like to see the Tigers grind this game out for a win.

    by Mr. X on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:45 pm

  84. What are you going to do to him?

    by Adam on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:46 pm

  85. Gerald Laird resembles Bilfer.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:46 pm

  86. about time verlander develops a new pitch i say

    by JOE Z on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:47 pm

  87. We need to quit talking about how many outs Raburn made Verlander get and start asking why he couldn’t get them when he knew he had to.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:48 pm

  88. Spank him. Something, seriously. I don’t know, but wow. 15-day bs-DL stint if it continues.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:48 pm

  89. “Look how straight his balls go – yeah, they’re really flat.” A female in the vicinity. About Speier.

    by Adam on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:49 pm

  90. I think we’ll get another 2 runs, but I don’t think the Angels are done either.

    Verlander will get it figured out. Just a bad spell.

    by Kevin in Austin (now Dallas) on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:49 pm

  91. And I am with you Mr. X, I will be in this game till the end hoping they can pull it out. Bullpen probably needs to pitch a 4 inning shutout though.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:50 pm

  92. WELCOME JOSH! This would be a great time for your first Tiger HR.

    by David G. on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:51 pm

  93. LOL when I first saw Anderson was going to steal I was thinking whats the point we have 2 outs with Everett up. But Everett came through with that single, nice job.

    by Nick S on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:58 pm

  94. @David

    I was merely asking about it I heard alot of bitching about Raburn and I can’t watch the game.

    by ouchudied on Apr 22, 2009 at 11:58 pm

  95. I’ve got my pick for who leaves when Zumaya is healthy….Rincon….Bull pen lets us down again…

    by Brenden on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:10 am

  96. Enjoy your last day with the club, Rincon.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:11 am

  97. Verlander needs to be a little more wild or more perfect to be effective. When he’s in between wild and filthy, he gets the snot kicked out of him more often than not.

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:12 am

  98. why is he on the team

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:13 am

  99. Yeah, Rincon is pitching himself off the team here.

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:13 am

  100. I’m about 1 run away from turning it off for good.

    by Brenden on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:15 am

  101. When Zoom comes up (before he gets hurt again) Bonine will go down.

    by David G. on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:15 am

  102. ok glad I’m not the only wondering why rincon is still on this team.

    by Joey in Portland OR on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:16 am

  103. Forgot about Bonine, but still. Terrible stuff every time out from Rincon.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:16 am

  104. Ok Rincon. Minimal damage done. We’re still in this game.

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:17 am

  105. Need a Miggs homer.

    by Adam on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:20 am

  106. Billfer’s right about the defense for Verlander though…even Inge has had no web gems for him and one bounced throw to the plate…maybe there’s some sort of negative energy out there when he’s on the mound…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:21 am

  107. There’s still a lot of outs left here, and Cabrera may burn through one of their bullpen in one AB…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:22 am

  108. Gotta get the lead here.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:27 am

  109. This Shields guy looks worse than Rincon!!!

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:27 am

  110. Wouldn’t be a bad time for Laird to “take one for the team” again either…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:28 am

  111. I love how Mario won’t say…”streaking” . I assume, at least. haha.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:28 am

  112. Inge could open this game up like a can of something or another here, and I hope he does cause the on deck circle’s got GIDP sitting on it….

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:29 am

  113. INGE! Always gets these little bloop misplay RBIs. He’s magic!

    by Adam on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:32 am

  114. LA is gift wrapping this game for us.

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:33 am

  115. Wow, clutch by Inge. What happened to Shields? Maybe this is finally the year where his arm falls off, a la Scott Proctor or Eddie Guardado.

    by Ryan on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:34 am

  116. Man Inge has just been clutch this season! Him and his force-field (one or two more these and I won’t even be joking about that, I mean I don’t remember ever seeing anything like it…)

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:34 am

  117. Thank the lord, we caught a break. Way to put it in play, Brandon.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:34 am

  118. So nice when it’s the other team having a meltdown!

    by Slashpyne on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:35 am

  119. :lol:
    :lol:
    :lol:

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:37 am

  120. The Angels radio guys aren’t happy with Abreu on that one.

    by Slashpyne on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:38 am

  121. Doesn’t look like Arredondo is the answer either.

    by Ryan on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:40 am

  122. :lol:
    This is getting crazy
    :lol:

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:41 am

  123. This is what shakespeare would call a comedy of errors.

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:41 am

  124. Only three runs. The arsonists in our pen can still blow this.

    by Ryan on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:42 am

  125. Dang first pitch GIDP. TO HECK WITH YOUR VICES, MAGGLIO!

    by Adam on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:42 am

  126. This is by far the most satisfying inning so far this year.

    Ah, come on Maggs. Heh.

    by Ryan P. on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:43 am

  127. If Brandon Lyon comes in the game I’m shooting somebody.

    by ouchudied on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:44 am

  128. yah but Maggs cant GIDP there…and im not greedy…we still have 9 more outs to go if necessary

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:45 am

  129. Sweet Rincon in line for the W!

    by Joey in Portland OR on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:47 am

  130. I’m not in favor of Perry as the set-up man at this point. Too wild, though the K of Matthews was nice. I’d prefer Seay for now.

    by billfer on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:48 am

  131. Defense? By everett?? No error??? I must have fallen asleep on the couch because I am dreaming.

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:50 am

  132. @tom – He plays defense, unless the score is tied or it’s a one run game. That’s when he boots it.

    by Ryan on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:51 am

  133. did anyone notice (not trying to jinx it or anything): Everett’s average is .308

    haha i was so shocked when i saw that, hopefully he can hit at least over .250, although that’s wishing judging by his career stats

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:55 am

  134. @Tom, Ryan: it just occurred to me–Everett’s defense is Inge’s fault (so is Santiago’s), they are close enough to suffer from the same force-field effect that works in his favor when he is batting. I suggest whoever is at SS play close to the bag…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:57 am

  135. Or that Inge is at .306? (Much of that is arguably due to infield non-errors, however.)

    Still, it’s nice to see.

    by Adam on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:57 am

  136. Well, Everett has a whole career of being an excellent defender. The fact he had a couple rough weeks is more the outlier.

    by billfer on Apr 23, 2009 at 12:58 am

  137. Just for fun, if you include the Proximity Effect on his teammates as well as his plate appearances, so far Inge has been involved in 44% of the American League Shortstop errors so far this season…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:00 am

  138. @coleman-

    In support of your theory, note that everett was at a maximal distance from inge when he gloved that ball…

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:01 am

  139. It’s been nice having Seay come in and knowing we aren’t going to be walking guys…he’s starting to remind me of the 2006 Jamie Walker…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:05 am

  140. Inge baby!! INGE!!

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:09 am

  141. I’m sure the pitcher’s under instructions here, whatever you do, don’t throw Inge anything he can bounce to shortstop…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:09 am

  143. Inge! He better watch out or they’re going to start pitching to him like he’s babe ruth

  144. @coleman

    don’t jinx it! im enjoying our decent bullpen, as im sure u r too!

    last year when jones blew that game against the white sox i punched a hole in my basement wall!
    no more bad bullpen, it kills me!

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:10 am

  145. Whoa, no errors possible on that one! Bingo Bango Binge!

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:11 am

  146. Haha that Babe Ruth stuff never gets old.

    by Adam on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:11 am

  147. wow he killed that…cabrera-esque

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:11 am

  148. Good point, bilfer. He has been an excellent defender in his career, particularly in his Astros days.

    by Ryan on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:12 am

  149. Another run probably Rodney-proofs this one then Adrian can relax…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:12 am

  150. I have been enjoying the dimension Josh Anderson adds to the team.

    by Slashpyne on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:17 am

  151. Random fact: last season Inge hit his 5th HR on June 6.

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:18 am

  152. The Angels radio guys said Rodney is 32. That’s not right, is it?

    by Slashpyne on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:22 am

  153. @billfer

    True, everett has had a rough few weeks. I am more impressed because guys are coming back into form – guillen and grandy are hitting. Everett defense. Even zumaya is looking good. If only JV amd maggs follow suit soon.

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:22 am

  154. oh boy…so close…and great a hit

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:24 am

  155. and just as i say that DP…good.

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:25 am

  156. It’s still early, but I’m guessing that the bottom of the lineup hitting can be dropped way down the list of concerns for this season. As of yesterday (so not including tonight’s onslaught) Detroit’s 7-9 hitters had an OPS of .809, best in baseball (their 3-6 hitters: .806).

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:25 am

  157. And as if on cue, another great everett dp.

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:26 am

  158. that was a nice place by everett

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:26 am

  159. Way too good of a pitch with two strikes, even with a big lead.

    by Ryan on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:27 am

  160. no screwing around, get the last out!

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:28 am

  161. For those of us “watching” on gameday…how straight is Rodney’s hat tonight?

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:29 am

  162. oh no…tying run batting now

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:30 am

  163. If we lose this freaking game…

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:30 am

  164. Man do I wish we had gotten that one more run…

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:30 am

  165. Rodney is losing confidence.. that’s like his tenth straight changeup.

    by Ryan on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:32 am

  166. How’s Aybar’s power?

    by Adam on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:32 am

  167. You have got to be kidding me… Come on rodney

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:33 am

  168. Rodney…

    by Ryan P. on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:33 am

  169. A win is a win. WTG Tigers.

    by Mr. X on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:33 am

  170. Okay. Ugliest win ever. But it counts.

    by Adam on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:33 am

  171. I am a young man but I will have a heart attack if the “closer” starts doing that on a regular basis.

    by tom on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:35 am

  172. Holy Kyle Farnsworth did that ever make me sweat!

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:35 am

  173. ok phew!

    good win by coming back

    pitching has to be better tho

    for once, however, when JV is pitching against the other team’s best pitcher, id like him to outpitch the other for once.

    by Adrian from Toronto on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:36 am

  174. Well, to get anywhere you’ve gotta win some ugly. And lest anyone forget last season–it beats the hell out of LOSING ugly!

    by Coleman on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:40 am

  175. From Angels Stadium.
    ..the streak ends at 10 in a row for us at this stadium…. the curse is over…we are pumped up for tomorrow now..the next streak breaker is no series wins since 1970….go Tigers

    funny how everyone here is crying about the Angel bullpen…we just laugh!!!!!!

    by jud on Apr 23, 2009 at 1:41 am

  176. lets get a series win!, caught the 9th.

    Inge hits another hr, Rodney looked bad

    Scanning these comments doesn’t make me feel so good about Raburn, or Verlander for that matter. Coleman that random factoid about Inge is not surprising to say the least. It is very interesting though. I know it is still very early anybody want to put an over/under on his HR totals for the year? (assuming health)

    Every day it is looking like he is going to break his career high. Right now he is on pace for 58 hrs! lol. Maybe he’ll hit 30+. ;)
