This team is becoming a bigger joke on a daily basis.
Vince in MN

Toronto knows the Tigers can’t score, so they are going for the insurance run in the bottom of the second.

Success. Well played small ball strategy.
Smokey Jr. could take a page or two from the BJ manager’s book, and start to manufacture runs like he said he was going to do at the beginning of the season.

They tried it successfully early on, but seem to have gotten away from that sometime in April. That’s what happens when you have a team that slugs it.

Seriously, I don’t think you can put plays on when you have a lineup of hackers. Most of these guys will (and do) swing at just about anything. There isn’t enough of a nuanced approach (e.g. patience) to their at bats.

Then send the guilty parties to the minors to learn!
August 8, 2014 at 7:52 pm
Goodnight Irene ….. might as well put this one in the (L) column!

Miggy might be hurting more than he is letting on; all the ground balls and popups, to say nothing of the power outage.
August 8, 2014 at 8:36 pm
We can’t hit, we can’t catch ….. we are in big trouble!
August 8, 2014 at 8:39 pm
The Blue Jays have discovered a major weakness: put the ball in play on the left side, including more bunts.
August 8, 2014 at 9:02 pm
Sanchez leaves the game with an injury ….. stormy weather on the horizon for the Tigers.
August 8, 2014 at 9:41 pm
Bullpen holds us in the game. Where are the bats?
August 8, 2014 at 9:44 pm
I just got buzzed by a bat in the backyard, does that count?
August 8, 2014 at 9:55 pm
Buehler, Buehler, anyone?
August 8, 2014 at 9:52 pm
The whole team starting with Smokey Jr. look and act like they are somewhere else or would like to be somewhere else!
August 8, 2014 at 9:58 pm
I keep saying that about Cabrerra. He has that Fernando Rodney look all the time on his face!
August 8, 2014 at 9:56 pm
I can’t wait to hear from Smokey Jr on how well the Tigers did…
Jays bunted…we used too
Jays double steal…we used too
Jays squeeze…we have months ago
Jays caught the ball…we used too
Jays with timely hits…we used too
Jays 3-4-5 hitters had 6 hits…we used too
August 8, 2014 at 10:00 pm
Wow!..what was that!
Bottom of the order shows up. Keep it up boys.
August 8, 2014 at 10:02 pm
And what was that!!!!…this guy could pitch for us!
August 8, 2014 at 10:03 pm
Break out the scotch. We need it now.
August 8, 2014 at 10:23 pm
Quick, pour me a glass!
August 8, 2014 at 10:05 pm
The big bats are at the bottom again. I can’t believe how hard Suarez hit that.
August 8, 2014 at 10:08 pm
Let the real game begin!
Only Tiger Fan in Mississippi
August 8, 2014 at 10:09 pm
Yeah Suarez spanked it.
August 8, 2014 at 10:16 pm
That’s one, he’s off.
August 8, 2014 at 10:27 pm
Cmon Joe. Let’s get this done.
August 8, 2014 at 10:29 pm
I didn’t see what I just saw….piece of cake!!….that’s baseball!
August 8, 2014 at 10:30 pm
Unbelievable win …… nothing comes easy for the Tigers.
August 8, 2014 at 10:37 pm
I was beginning to think we were playing in Cleveland.

The Kids are Alright – Castellanos & Suarez. Maybe they will lead this team. No one else seems in a hurry to take on the role.
