    I’m surprised that Don Kelly isn’t batting clean-up.

      Exactly–he’s playing 1st, and that’s where the cleanup hitter plays, who the heck made out this lineup, Gene Lamont?

    RA Dickey pitched well tonight and he doesn’t even have an ulnar collateral ligament. There’s hope for Willis.

    I wonder if Jackson is a little gun-shy and doesn’t realize it.

    Santiago/Worth > Everett/Sizemore

    Is anyone else a little uncomfortable with the June 4th promotion (behind the Mariners on deck circle).

      Felix Hernandez train night? Oh the possibilities.

      • Coleman

        May 25, 2010 at 10:57 pm

        Disappointingly, fans will find that it’s just a night where before the game King Felix stretches, does a bit of long-toss, and does a couple of drills with the pitching coach

            Mom, can you make us all some grilled cheese before you put on your face cream? You promised!

            • Coleman

              May 25, 2010 at 11:33 pm

              Wha?

                See, she said it was guys night out at Bilfer’s place. So I joked back that mom should make us grilled cheese before going to bed.

                Sigh.

    Love the retractible roof. Wish Comerica had that.

    Get ready! Brandon Inge player of the game.

    • Coleman

      Boy is he quick for an elephant

    The West Coast sure has a different vibe.

  13. Coleman

    May 25, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    The Ingephant, definitely player of the game now

  14. kathy

    May 25, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    Yea, and will Carlos Guillen become the next Chone Figgins?

  15. Joey C.

    May 25, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    I think Figgins struck out twice while working that walk.

    Four of the following Five are current Metro Detroit headlines. Which is the impostor??
    * Kilpatrick imprisoned, faces 1½ to 5 years
    * Riddle: ‘It’s a great day to go to jail’
    * Inge: How I learned to lay off the breaking ball
    * Spokesman likens Kilpatrick sentencing to apartheid
    * Man sought in robberies of Family Dollar stores

      Even more brilliant. Keep ‘em coming.

    • Coleman

      May 25, 2010 at 11:11 pm

      Hey, he already has a hit this series, simmer down

      • Joey C.

        May 25, 2010 at 11:19 pm

        Oh man. I wish it were the apartheid comment. A race baiting administration to the end.

        Hey I didn’t start watching the game till the 3rd…did Inge go into the stands?

  17. Kevin in Dallas

    AJax has 4 ABs in 4 innings. We’re gonna score about 5 more runs tonight.

    Verlander’s play on Ichiro’s grounder was sick.

  19. Coleman

    The elephant in the room has just left the building!

    Ingephantastic!!

    Inge Juice, now containing 22% real major leaguer. Available without a prescription.

    May 26, 2010 at 12:18 am

    This is officially a frustrating game.

  22. Coleman

    May 26, 2010 at 12:24 am

    It’s a bit irritating being beaten by The Belligerent Board Game

    Miggy should be playing baseball.

    The Mariners announcers are proud of their 6th win of the month.

    • kathy

      May 26, 2010 at 12:36 am

      Wakamatsu’s neck is on the chopping block if they don’t start winning.

  25. Coleman

    May 26, 2010 at 12:36 am

    I disagree actually. Assuming things are at least somewhat as presented, Miggy made a commitment to stop with all the drinking, and be a better, more mature family man, and presumably ballplayer. By giving him the time off, the Tigers do their part to be partners in this. I think the long-term benefits of this could easily outweigh whatever effects it has on this 2-game series.

      I was beimg sarcastic, Coleman. Although, we could have used his bat.

      And, considering when she became “with child”, I’d say he’s definitely doing the right thing.
