Game 2011.52: Red Sox at Tigers

Speechless and kinda sick to my stomach after game 1.  Beckett v. Verlander II sounds fun, more later.

(game will be televised on FSD)

  1. So….how long until Raburn and Inge are gone? These two clowns should be DFA’d. Good bye and good riddance.

    I can’t imagine Raburn will keep on getting playing time, will he? Why does he seem to have an endless leash this year?

  2. Leyland says everything Raburn has done up to this point doesn’t count, now that he is the “everyday” 2B, “His season begins [today].”

    So, for the season, Raburn has an OPS of .000 and a 75% strike out rate.

  3. We could just bench them and play Don Kelly, Ramon Santiago, and Danny Worth more. Inge and Raburn are signed thru 2012 also, so I doubt they get DFA’d. Reserve roles would fit them better while they are slumping.

  4. At Brenden’s request, here’s Leyland’s Ingeless and Rayless line-up. Enjoy.

    CF AJax
    LF Dirks
    RF Boesch
    1B Cabrera
    DH VMart
    3B Kelly
    C Avila
    SS Santiago
    2B Worth

  5. I guess Raburn is the everyday 2B, except for today.

  7. Inge signed a 2 year deal, so not anytime soon. He might get dealt, but only if the Tigers are willing to eat the vast majority of his salary.

    Raburn is gonna hit.

    by Kevin in Dallas on May 29, 2011 at 8:07 pm

  8. Boesch!! Love that base running speed Dirks has.

    by Mr X on May 29, 2011 at 8:10 pm

  9. Miggy! Boesch!!

    by Mr X on May 29, 2011 at 8:11 pm

  10. BTW – I’m okay with the eating salary portion above.

    by Kevin in Dallas on May 29, 2011 at 8:16 pm

  11. We’re looking good, which means game will definitely be postponed.

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 8:17 pm

  12. If Raburn starts to hit, he will play every day. If Raburn plays every day, he will break the franchise single-season K record. (Last I looked he was on pace for 210 this season).

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 8:22 pm

  13. When exactly is Raburn going to start hitting? What do you base that claim on? He has been atrocious at the plate up to today and his fielding stats sub-par.

    You sound like Jim Leyland when you say “Raburn is gonna hit”. At this point, he is no better than Scott Sizemore at 2nd base.

    by Brenden on May 29, 2011 at 8:42 pm

  14. I’m glad they’re starting to listen to me now, geesh. I guess 0/4 with 3 Ks wasn’t a good start for our “new” starting 2nd baseman.

    by Brenden on May 29, 2011 at 8:48 pm

  15. Verlander is making the Sox look Silly.

    by Mr X on May 29, 2011 at 9:10 pm

  16. If someone could predict when someone is going to hit or pitch, then we wouldn’t even need to play the games. We could just have this Nostrodomus of a person Twitter us the results. Sounds like a job for TSE.

    by Mr X on May 29, 2011 at 9:23 pm

  17. Is it me or is Mr. Porter calling a very tight strike zone tonight?

    by tbran in Troy on May 29, 2011 at 9:45 pm

  18. 8th inning coming up, Enrique Gonzalez time

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 10:08 pm

  19. Justin proving once again that he is legit Ace.Justin = or > Cabrera and Martinez and > the rest of the team.

    by tbran in Troy on May 29, 2011 at 10:23 pm

  20. And that was Ellsbury doing his best Raburn imitation in center.

    by tbran in Troy on May 29, 2011 at 10:32 pm

  21. Well played DonKel!

    by Only Tiger Fan in Mississippi on May 29, 2011 at 10:35 pm

  22. Never diss the DonKe

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 10:40 pm

  23. You’ve heard of Dontrel…he’s DonKel

    by Only Tiger Fan in Mississippi on May 29, 2011 at 10:46 pm

  24. The spit in the palm and slap the palm bit by Ortiz is getting old.

    by tbran in Troy on May 29, 2011 at 10:46 pm

  25. Yeah! Another shutout! When we’re good, we’re pretty damn great!

    by Mr X on May 29, 2011 at 10:48 pm

  26. DonKel Won’tiss

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 10:48 pm

  27. By “we” you refer to Justin Verlander

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 10:49 pm

  28. All of our starters. Verlander, Scherzer, Porcello, Coke, and Penny.

    10 games they’ve had without giving up a run.

    by Mr X on May 29, 2011 at 11:07 pm

  29. Take a look at his OPS+ for the past two years, and his 2nd half splits. He can hit in the bigs.

    by Kevin in Dallas on May 29, 2011 at 11:10 pm

  30. Wow. Great stat. What’s everyone doing for the game tomorrow afternoon?

    by Kevin in Dallas on May 29, 2011 at 11:11 pm

  31. The Tigers actually have some guys now that inspire glove-comfort: Peralta last season gave me glove-anxiety, but not this year; Inge, and his new platoon buddy Kelly; AJax; Dirks!; Cabrera, unless it’s a popup, in which case he’s helpless.

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 11:20 pm

  32. Oh, and Santiago, who is excellent at either SS or 2B. He doesn’t do anything spectacular necessarily, but when the ball goes his way, do you ever doubt he is going to make the play?

    by Coleman on May 29, 2011 at 11:29 pm

  33. Verlander seems to have turned another corner after the no-hitter and his talk with Morris.
