Brad Ausmus is, no doubt, good at some things. Others, not so much. One of those others is nicknames: he referred to today’s starting pitcher as “The Lobber.” OK, I’m sorry, very bad nickname for a pitcher. I’m going with “Lobster.” You know I’m right.
At any rate, if the Tigers hit like they did last night, it won’t matter much who is pitching. If they don’t, it probably won’t matter much who is pitching. Anyway, K-Lob is a pitch-to-contact type, and has Bozo’s Big Top behind him in the field (statistically speaking). So we’ll see.
