Game 2009.074: Tigers at Astros

PREGAME: Jim Leyland took advantage of an off day this week to shake up the rotation and put Alfredo Figaro in between Justin Verlander and Edwin Jackson. The thinking was that it would help balance the bullpen use some. He wasn’t figuring on Verlander getting chased in the 6th inning. The bullpen would have been more taxed if the Joel Zumaya hadn’t blown the lead in the 8th so I guess we can thank Joel for keeping Fernando Rodney fresh. Let’s hope Figaro can give the team at least 6 solid tonight.

Felipe Paulino returns from the DL to take the hill tonight. His K and BB numbers aren’t bad, but he will give up some long balls with 7 homers allowed in 43.1 innings.

  4. I wonder what % Willis has of that?

    It seems like Rick Knapp is no better than Chuck Hernandez after all.

  5. I don’t believe that June stat for a second. That’s 6 BB per game. That’s crazy if its true.

    EDIT: The Day by Day DB says 114. Rod Allen is full of crap like usual. Seriously, some of the stuff he says…

  8. Well, Rod could have had the number as 115, which sounds quite a bit like 150.
