    Would it be possible to add the game time to these graphics?

    I am going today but I just feel sick. It’s so sad for everyone involved. Baseball is not supposed to be so sad.

    Unbelievable. GM just presented Armando Galarraga a new Corvette right on the field. He sat in the car and all his teammates congratulated him for his more than perfect game..

    Good things happen when you take the high road. In the words of Ron Burgundy – stay classy..

      And now RBurn! It’s nice to get that run back.

    Boesch is fast. He’d give Jackson a run for his money in a 200 m race

    The rare double-triple inning…what a fun inning this is.

    Brandon 0-2 with two groundouts. He’s probably got 35% of the vote for Player of the Game. (sigh)

    can there be a worse defensive team than the Tigers…..my gosh this is horrible 42 errors and counting by the inning

  11. Mark in Chicago

    June 3, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    goodness, nothing like kicking away THAT 4-run lead in about 30 seconds. yikes.

  12. Coleman

    June 3, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    C’mon Miguel, time for your error, let’s at least get an infield cycle here.

  13. Mark in Chicago

    June 3, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    Porcello looks awful right now and is getting no help from his defense. Armando had to get 28 outs last night, today it looks like we might need to give the Indians 38 to get through 9 innings.

    what a horrible inning

  15. jud

    June 3, 2010 at 2:22 pm

    how can you go from a poor defensive team two years ago to a pretty good defensive team last year to a horrible defensive team this year with basically the same players,. I know there has been a change at second but but 42 errors haven’t come from 2nd base

  16. Jerry The Tiger Fan

    June 3, 2010 at 2:24 pm

    Inge…Inge…Inge. Your one attribute is defense and you let a routine chopper go under your glove to open the floodgates to a huge inning. Maybe the fans have wised up and will only give Brandon 25% of the vote today for Player of the Game. Two groundouts (one of which failed to move a runner over from second with none out in 2nd) and HUGE error. Way to go Brandon. Someone on this team always has to do something jaw-droppingly awful just about every game, don’t they?

    • Mark in Chicago

      June 3, 2010 at 2:30 pm

      “Someone on this team always has to do something jaw-droppingly awful just about every game, don’t they?”

      No kidding. I mean, last night Galarraga BARELY got out of the 9th inning when he allegedly allowed a baserunner. ;-)

        June 3, 2010 at 2:49 pm

        I said “just about every game” Mark, not every game. If you can’t agree with that I guess you don’t watch enough games.

  17. Jerry The Tiger Fan

    June 3, 2010 at 2:27 pm

    Way to give up on the sacrifice Jimmy. You’ve only got your best hitters coming up. I’m sure that Everett was probably “due” or some other outdated way of thinking that led you to let him swing away. Great managing again Ol’ Smoky.

    Austin Jackson is “special” as Rod would say.

    • Coleman

      June 3, 2010 at 2:30 pm

      And followed, alas, by Raburn

  19. jud

    June 3, 2010 at 2:30 pm

    sure glad Raburn is in that 2 spot

    June 3, 2010 at 2:32 pm

    as Everett pops out for the 100000000000000000 time this year rod says “He’s been doing that a lot this year”…….duh!

    • Coleman

      June 3, 2010 at 2:38 pm

      I liked his comment on Marson: he’s best in the league at throwing out runners, but they were hoping to get more offense out of him, he’s struggling at .205

      Wow, a catcher hitting .205? That’s looking pretty good to us Tiger fans about now…

  22. jud

    June 3, 2010 at 2:45 pm

    we will take anything from Binge thank you

    • Coleman

      June 3, 2010 at 2:54 pm

      Just think of the pressure of being Inge at bat, and knowing you’ve got the Mendoza Twins following you

      • Mark in Chicago

        June 3, 2010 at 3:13 pm

        Indeed. They’re pitching him like he’s Babe Ruth.

    • Coleman

      June 3, 2010 at 2:56 pm

      As thin as the chances my be, at least there is a glimmer of hope when Inge is up..

    Inge actually does something positive! His Player of the Game vote soars to 41% on FSN Detroit. Go ahead and show me your intelligence again Tiger fans and put this schlub as your Player of the Game.

    sure glad Laird is playing …ever

  25. Jerry The Tiger Fan

    June 3, 2010 at 2:50 pm

    Don’t pinch hit Snatiago for Everett whatever you do Ol’ Smoky. Another great non-move from Ol’ Smoky. I’m sure Everett is still “due”.

    • jud

      June 3, 2010 at 3:06 pm

      heres Smokey’s exact rational…if I pinch hit Ramon and then he has to go in the field and he and Inge go for a ball and collide and i have to take them out of the game….I will not have any back ups……….plus he will tell you Everrett is due

  26. jud

    June 3, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    how come whenever they show DD on the TV screen up in the booth, I am hoping he is on the phone looking for a catcher and a SS

    That’s too bad that ball bounced into the stands, Jackson had at least a stand-up triple on that one.

  28. Jerry The Tiger Fan

    June 3, 2010 at 3:08 pm

    Don’t give up on the bunt this time Ol’ Smoky. You’ve got Maggs and Miggy coming up.
    Yay! You did the right thing for a change, even if we don’t score a run. Thank you for actually doing something correctly.

  29. kathy

    June 3, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    Maggs!!!!

  30. Mark in Chicago

    June 3, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    AJax really is pretty incredible. If I’m Cleveland I almost have to stop pitching to him.

    • kathy

      June 3, 2010 at 3:11 pm

      “Special” as Rod would say.

    June 3, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    How about AJAX…wow…and Maggs.

  32. Coleman

    June 3, 2010 at 3:10 pm

    R3L2O – success!!

  33. jud

    June 3, 2010 at 3:20 pm

    strange but not for Smokey a defensive replacement in left for another defensive replacement who started

  34. kathy

    June 3, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    He’s not gonna warm up Ryan Perry, is he?

  35. KW

    June 3, 2010 at 3:21 pm

    This just in: Selig won’t overturn blown call in near-perfect game.

    In other news, MLB has lost all credibility.

    So depressing.

  36. Mark in Chicago

    June 3, 2010 at 3:22 pm

    can’t help but notice on Gameday that Branyan’s fly out to Jackson in CF is actually beyond the wall a little bit. Did AJAX take away a home run today, too?

    • ouchudied

      June 3, 2010 at 3:27 pm

      No, it was a pretty routine catch made on the warning track.

      • Mark in Chicago

        June 3, 2010 at 3:28 pm

        too bad, I was hoping the legend would grow some more.

        • ouchudied

          June 3, 2010 at 3:31 pm

          However, he made a Willie Mays type over-the-shoulder grab in the first inning in a full sprint towards the center field wall in the first inning. I thought it was actually a better play than last night’s catch, although obviously the catch today did not carry the same magnitude as did the play last night

  37. jud

    June 3, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    we are talking Everett AND Laird BOTH on base…..HOLY COW!

    • Coleman

      June 3, 2010 at 3:36 pm

      Clearly, Everett was “due.”

      • jud

        June 3, 2010 at 3:42 pm

        and Smokey will convince himself he was right as usual and Everett gets to play another month now

        • Smith

          June 3, 2010 at 4:04 pm

          Please no. He’s so horrible.

  38. Coleman

    June 3, 2010 at 3:39 pm

    And AJax gets the run home by swinging at a wild pitch and striking out…odd inning

      June 3, 2010 at 4:06 pm

      Luis Aparicio once did it on purpose. Did he do the same?

    I haven’t been watching, are Carlos’ Es that bad?

    • kathy

      June 3, 2010 at 3:58 pm

      imho, it his throwing according to all the announcers. I’m listening on the radio and also watching TV. Like I said before, both the SS and Miggy try to compensate for Guillen’s shortcomings at 2nd base.

    • Smith

      June 3, 2010 at 4:03 pm

      It’s his arm slot on his throws. Making the ball tail on him. He needs to come more over the top on his throws. It’ll be fixed soon, I’m sure.

      • Coach Jim

        June 4, 2010 at 9:13 am

        He’s been this way his entire career. Why would he change now?

    Binge one hit and one rbi. He gets my vote for player of the game

    • Mark in Chicago

      June 3, 2010 at 4:17 pm

      Inge got the hat facing forward and shoes on the right feet. Totally POTG for those moves.

    • Jerry The Tiger Fan

      June 3, 2010 at 4:45 pm

      Absolutely! He’s so awesome! We are soooo lucky to have him! (sarcasm intended)

  45. kathy

    June 3, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    Wonder if Grandy caught the highlights and Jackson’s catch. He probably feels good for Jackson knowing we got a worthy replacement.

  46. Jerry The Tiger Fan

    June 3, 2010 at 4:48 pm

    That homestand was awful. 3-4 against two teams that won’t be in the postseason. Hopefully we continue our trend of plauying well vs. KC in KC this weekend. Two out of three would be nice and very doable with no Greinke pitching. The bad news is that Bannister is pitching Sunday and we all know his daytime track record (basically he’s Superman). Need Scherzer and Verlander to be on their game.
