Let me offer the following radical theory as to why the Tigers lose when they lose: The players didn’t play well enough. I know I’m going out on a limb to suggest that players on the field are responsible for making the plays, getting the outs, and scoring the runs, but I’ve decided to make this my bully pulpit for such outlandish, unheard of, and totally wild speculation.
Another game coming up. Another chance to knock ’em dead. I wouldn’t get too carried away with dire assessments. Baseball fans are a study in confirmation bias slanted toward the negative. I’m no exception. But I try to resist.
