Game 2012.61: Tigers at Cubs
28-32, 3rd place, 5 games behind CWS.
Well, the tone of what I planned on posting changed pretty significantly around the 8th inning on Sunday night, and the Tigers waggle into Wrigley after taking a series in Cinci. Short on time today, but a few notes:
- Don’t Ask Dotel to the DL with elbow inflammation, Putkonen back up.
- That makes 7 on the DL, right now. The Tigers have already used 40 players this season, which has DD scrambling to figure out 40 man roster rules.
- Valverde doesn’t throw a spitball, he just sweats a lot.
Papa Peralta is tonight’s player of the game, as he goes deep twice for each of his new twin girls, Gabriela and Laina.
