Game 2014.125: Tigers at Rays

TBR at DET

Baseball Reference Game Preview

David Price vs. Alex Cobb

GREAT game last night. There’s something to be said for dinosaurs and pitchers written off as perpetual #5 starters. Not only did Ricky P toss his third complete game shutout of 2014 (a feat that has never been accomplished before in baseball’s 900-year history), but he was also part of a couple nicely turned plays where he covered 1B, and almost part of what was almost a double play except for his part. And don’t forget Rajai Davis, Center Fielder of the Future.

Good times. I can see the Kansas City whatever-they’re-calleds in the rearview mirror already.

David Price facing the Rays. Hmmm. I like it. I like it a lot.

      You’re missing some classic “sluggo” batting today.

    There’s not much baseball left.

    David Price is about to lose a start with 1 hit, 0 walks. 0 earned runs.

        Wow.

        Well, I guess it wasn’t such a bad game. David Price really was a joy to watch. There’s that.

    I usually am kidding when I post that the Tiger pitcher needs to pitch a no- hitter to at least get a tie…I guess I am not kidding any more……hey Sluggos…thanks for NOTHING!

      The Tigers lead MLB in runners left standing on 3B. I know this intuitively.

        But on the positive side, let’s not forget that Torii Hunter reduced a HR to one of Price’s 23 consecutive outs. I know Price won’t.

    Today is a perfect example if why Scherzer didn’t sign long term and Price won’t…
    You give up 1 run you could just as well lose and heaven forbid you give up 2 the best you can do is get a no decision….
    Say goodbye to both of them!!!
