Game 2014.125: Tigers at Rays


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.

        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!!!
