Game 2010.115: Tigers at White Sox

Tigers in the Windy City for a three game set.  A W tonight would grant us our first 2 game winning streak in 3 weeks.    A winning series would be the first in a month.  Man this has been rough.  But as Ron Washington said, “that’s the way baseball go.”

Alright friends, let’s back the boys.

    I agree, LETS go Tigers. A win with Hawk doing the game would be alright with me. A win with FSN Detroit would be better.

      switch Inge and Boesch. Inge after Guillen, not Boesch.

    be nice to get a couple…Berhle owns the Tigers much like many other pitchers.. With CB Buckner behind the plate you have to make a good guess as to what he will CALL a strike and what he will call a ball, because he’s brutal a lot of the time

    Fast game so far.

    did he throw any strikes to Damon?

      Made a quick run to the store and missed the action.

      • Vince in MN

        August 13, 2010 at 8:56 pm

        Advice:
        Make another run and miss some more.

          Awwww. OK. Will go outside when Tigers come up to the plate.

    I will look this up later, but I would be willing to bet Damon will set a career high this season in called 3rd strikes

      That was a tough situation for him there. He has exactly 1 RBI vs a LH pitcher this year, plus he hasn’t done particularly well with RISP anyway. We need to sign this guy long term, right?

    • kathy

      August 13, 2010 at 8:55 pm

      Wouldn’t be surprised. He’ll probably return to form next year……kinda lik AH. I can’t even say his name.

    That was a cool play. Check swing, throw ‘em out at 2nd.

  9. Vince in MN

    August 13, 2010 at 8:59 pm

    Laird threw somebody out! That’s cool. Of course Vizquel is about 40, right?

  10. Vince in MN

    August 13, 2010 at 9:01 pm

    Bonderman has only thrown 40 pitches – can that be right?

    • kathy

      August 13, 2010 at 9:10 pm

      Well, that didn’t work.

    The radar gun on the Chicago station I’m watching had Bondo up to 94 a few times earlier, is anybody seeing the same thing on the Detroit feed?

    If so, that would be a really good sign for him going into next year. It kind of makes sense that it would take a long time for the velocity to come back considering the trauma of having a rib removed.

    • Vince in MN

      August 13, 2010 at 9:38 pm

      Whoever signs him will at least have that to look forward to.

    Is there an equivalent “line” for pitchers similar to the “Mendoza line” for batters? Bonderman’s ERA going over 5 that inning brought that thought to mind.

    • Vince in MN

      August 13, 2010 at 10:02 pm

      An ERA of 5 isn’t that bad actually. A lifetime ERA over 6 would probably do it though.

      • stephen

        August 13, 2010 at 11:00 pm

        No an ERA over 5 still sucks.

    I want to see Miggy taking deep breaths.

  16. Mark in Chicago

    It seems like forever since Cabrera batted with anybody on base.

  17. Vince in MN

    August 13, 2010 at 9:51 pm

    Rayburn. Mr. August has raised his BA 20 pts this month.

  18. Vince in MN

    August 13, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Speaking of the Mendoza line, with that bunt single Laird is sneaking ever closer – hitting .192 now.

    Just checked the Chicago doppler. Not looking too good. Rain is heading over Lake Michigan. They might have a small window to finish the game, but there’s another batch of rain right behind this one.

    10 games back:>(

      The good news is that Cleveland lost.

  21. stephen

    August 13, 2010 at 11:02 pm

    And lets not forget Bonderman’s rainout shellacking earlier this year. If that game counted, his ERA for his ‘bounce back’ year would be at 5.50. Enjoy that retirement Jeremy!

    Those first four innings were likely one of his best 4 inning strings all season. Damn 9 inning rule.

    • kathy

      He looked like a stud for awhile. I don’t think he’s done, yet.

    Well, I’ve seen enough. Goodnight, all.

    On a mobile so no direct reply, but post of the night goes to Vince in MN – Cle comment.

    We’re in an unprecedented run of relievers upping their ERA everytime out. More coming tomorrow.

    So, How do I go about changing my name? Just sign in with kathy1 instead? Someone else made a comment with the name kathy and I didn’t make it. I am assuming HR is Hanley Ramirez. I never said that.
