Game 2010.111: Angels at Tigers

Tigers have been playing .200 ball for the the better part of the last month, and have been even worse since I took over posting duties…

So I’m going to pull them out of their rut today. ¬†Going full Tigers gear with full faith in the boys.

Trevor Bell is very beatable, with a career 2.05 WHIP and .929 OPS against.  The Tigers have only been scoring 3.1 runs per game over their last 25, so something has to give.

Jackson gets the day off today:

Rhymes 2B
Damon DH
Boesch RF
Cabrera 1B
Peralta SS
Raburn LF
Inge 3B
Avila C
Kelly CF

Look for Guillen to be back in the lineup tomorrow.

  2. And yes, we do have the worst fielding pitchers in baseball.

  3. Also worst baserunning in the league.

  4. The mental errors over the past few weeks have been incredibly disappointing. Remember that foul ball that Miggy just flat out dropped a few nights ago? I can’t help but wonder if some of the guys are checking out.

  5. Thank you alex!

  6. Wow…Wee Willie Rhymes 3-4 2 RBI from the leadoff spot.

  7. gee Avila is leaving Laird in the dust at .215

  8. if Leyland and crew don’t mess him up too much the kid just might be able to play….he’s quick which sets him apart from most of the Tigers

  9. Telling graphic just popped up on the broadcast -

    Damon is .383 with 6 HRs for his career with the bases loaded…0-8 this year.

    Until now.

  10. Even more important than batting average, Avila is 61 points higher than Laird in OBP (.304 for Avila vs. .243 for Laird). Laird better not be on this roster in 2011. He is the plus-size version of Adam Everett.

  11. Wishful thinking. I have a dream that one day soon Jim Leyland will no longer be the skipper of the Tigers, but alas Mr. Ilitch has deemed it necessary to already announce that Ol’ Smoky will be back to completely frustrate the bejeezus out of all us for another summer. Makes 2011 seem pretty dim already, eh? I mean what does this guy have to do to get fired? Go 10-71 in the second half? I know there have been injuries this year but the consistent pattern of this team dying in the second half is pretty telling in my book.

  12. Of course he was rewarded for his good play by being sent to Toledo immediately after the game, to make room for Carlos Gimpy.

  13. Most ridiculous Lynn Henning article of all time. Where our beat writer praises the Tigers and Cale Iorg while minimizing the fact he’s having a worse year than last year when he hit .222 at AA! He’s hitting .214 after a three week hot streak which leads Henning to wonder if Iorg, wait for it, will be playing in the big leagues next year. Let me repeat: Iorg is in his mid twenties has hit .217 in over 700 AA at-bats and Henning is wondering if he will be playing shortstop in the major leagues next year. Good god.;patience

  14. I couldn’t believe it either, stephen.

    by kathy on Aug 9, 2010 at 4:35 pm

  15. c’mon stephen, it’s EIGHT WHOLE GAMES! clearly that’s more statistically relevant than the previous 2.75 years.

    by Mark in Chicago on Aug 9, 2010 at 4:59 pm

  16. Exactly! And please disregard Iorg’s two-year AA OPS of .599!

    by stephen on Aug 9, 2010 at 5:28 pm

  17. Well, Don Wakamatsu is available now…

    by Coleman on Aug 9, 2010 at 5:59 pm

  18. Coleman, I know you’re joking but man oh man, I spent 10 day in the Pacific NW and I’ve never seen more baserunning gaffes. It’s like they were throwing games. And Wakamatsu is a smart guy! That team just quit. I’m hoping we don’t see that herre.
