Impressive move by Holaday, that is how you do it. Noticed on the Quick Pitch (with my late night Heidi, what the Mrs. doesn’t know etc) that Mr. Clark said something to Ajax, so it may have been called. My rule on squeezes was that only I as 3b coach could call it, did not want to kill any ball players. Heidi also mentioned that we are 6-2 in one run tilts.
(I haven’t figured out how Smoking Look does the picture inserts)
Comment of the game was the last one, for a few reasons. First of all, the underhanded MLB.tv on-air mistress reference is simply hilarious, but more importantly, letting us know about the Clark to Jackson whisper. This morning’s report is that Holaday called it on his own, despite some suggestion from the dugout. Regardless, it was a fine play and a fantastic way to cap off the series opening win.
Ian Krol mentioned that the off-days and rainouts are screwing things up, presumably in the bullpen. Well, it’s gotta be that or a lack of talent.
Remember that Max Scherzer SI cover story I mentioned over the weekend? Apparently Max didn’t like it. Scherzer is frustrated that the cover story was his contract. I don’t think it made him out to be a bad guy at all. In fact, the article was quite flattering.
Scherzer v. Noesi today at 2:10 PM ET. Noesi is the dreaded hasn’t started in 2 years spot starter who always seem to have the Tigers’ number.
If someone could please post the sweep lineup when it’s avail, we would all be grateful.
– The Tigers are a season high 5 games over .500.
– Gotta admit, the win feels a little empty after Cabrera’s K with the bases loaded in the 9th. Is that rational? Cabrera was batting .280 for a brief moment there. Doesn’t really feel like he’s out of this slump yet though.
– Scherzer says 7/$144M is gonna look like a joke by the end of the season.
– Solid game for Holaday again.
Off to KC for the weekend.
