Tigers Minor League Wrap 6/1/09

Charlotte 13 Toledo 3
The Tigers need a 6th starter next Monday. Eddie Bonine may have been a candidate, but he didn’t last through 2 innings before allowing 9 hits and 7 runs. Marcus Thames went 4 for 5 as the DH tonight. Dusty Ryan went 2 for 3 with a walk and a double.

Altoona 5 Erie 4 (10 inn)
Ryan Strieby hit his 13 homer and also singled. Mike Hollimon also homered, singled, and walked. Alex Avila was 2 for 3 with 2 walks. Pat Stanley allowed 3 runs in 6.1 innings on 5 hits, 1 walk and 5 K’s.

Lakeland 4 Palm Beach 1
Santo De Leon went 2 for 4. Charlie Furbush allowed just 2 hits and 2 walks in 6 innings. Lester Oliveros fanned 4 in 2 innings of work. Robbie Weinhardt got the save pitching a scoreless 9th.

  2. Here’s an article that ranks MLB managers. Leyland is ranked the 3rd best :-)

  3. Any list where Dusty Baker is top half and Manny Acta is not clearly has credibility issues. Re-reading the header, I think this ends up being more a ranking of “who would you like to play for?”. Where the manager is not only himself, but also sort of the representation of the organization and their system. Which is fine. As for actual game managing, Francona, Acta, Macha, and Cox just about have to be the best on anyone’s list. And Dusty is somewhere in the mid-40s.

  4. I don’t really watch enough Reds games to comment on Dusty’s efficacy as far as game managing goes. I will say that Bob Geren should be ranked at about 194 after intentionally walking Chris Davis the other night…
