Pregame: Kansas City Royals at Detroit Tigers (rained out)

Tigers go for the sweep today, with Anibal “The Third Tenor” Sanchez going up against some guy in a cap we’ll pretend is not an “unknown” rookie, just to be safe.  No, he’s a grizzled veteran with a long history of success against Detroit. He’s virtually unhittable and it’s probably not even worth trying. Kelly at 1B, Miggy’s gonna sit. That’s the ticket.

The last time these two teams played on a Thursday, the Tigers pummeled Jeremy Guthrie with hits and yet not many runs, but Prince Fielder’s two-run shot early would be all they needed in a 4-1 win, with the aforementioned Sanchez turning in a typical gem (and a pretty gaudy 81 strikes in 115 pitches).

    game 3 rained out – no date set yet for rescheduled game… also JV will pitch game game 5 and Smyly will miss ‘his turn’ in the initial rotation

      Smyly becomes the new long man over the next few games as I am sure they will want him to get some work in. In the event our starters keep going deep, he’ll probably need some kind of simulated game on the side. They did the same with Porcello early last season.

      Why not skip Porcello as well and have JV go on Saturday and Mad Max on Sunday?
