Game 2015.10: White Sox at Tigers

Not a lot of time this morning, but I’ll just say that so far so good. Hard to find fault with any part of the Tigers club so far, everything is going our way. Even the calls seem to be. But good teams will have streaks like this, just don’t get too down when we lose a few in a row. It’s a long season.

No update on Verlander…I don’t think he’s coming off of the DL anytime soon.

Here are the weekend probables.

(all times Eastern)

Friday 1:08 PM: Samardzija v. Price

Saturday 1:08 PM: Sale v. Sanchez

Sunday 1:08 PM: TBD v. Greene

    2-3 one out and two terrible at bats. Martinez hits a pitch 6 inches inside, Cecpedes takes two hanging curve balls then throws his bat at a pitch in the dirt….early hacking by the swing swing swing Tigs after Miggys bomb!

    Running on contact seems to fail more often than it succeeds.

    I’d like to see a time when it actually succeeds…does it ever??

    Runners at 2nd and 3rd, 1 out–no runs. Runners at 1st and 3rd, nobody out–no runs. Leadoff double–no runs. I guess we’d rather win the hard way.

    Nice bunt by Alex. One more chance with a runner at 3rd and less than 2 out…

      Why doesn’t AA lay them down like that when they put the shift on him?

      I’ll ride this (pitching) wave as long as it lasts. The stellar pitching takes the pressure off rushing JV and Nathan back before they’re completely right… insert joke here about the time needed to get Nathan “right”.

    It’s a shame that Price couldn’t get the W after his performance today!

    Nice 24-hr stretch for DET fans… the Wings get outshot (and outplayed) 46-14 and still manage a Game 1 win – and today Tiger’s pull out a walk-off win

    Gotta say, it’s nice to win one we didn’t deserve for once, but Castellanos is the most knuckleheaded player I’ve seen on this team in a long time. Why on earth would someone who runs like a dump truck try to stretch that single into a double? Let’s not let this win cloud the obvious: he has terrible baserunning instincts and it’s going to bite the Tigers in the tail many times of the course of the season.

    I apologize for the non baseball item, but i thought some of the regulars on here might recall a post from last May in re my health. I was exposed to the hep C virus at some point in the early 80’s as a Firefighter EMT. Got sick in 2000, had a liver transplant in ’04, and the new liver was starting to be damaged from the Hep C virus. In May (2014), the Docs at University of Washington Medical Center told me it was my time to try the new magic bullet that cures the virus. I am the 1st person to receive this med as a Workman’s comp case in WA. It took a long time to work out the kinks, and long story short, I started on it yesterday. It’s 90 days, 1 pill once a day, and 1 other twice a day. The average success rate is a whopping 94%, so feel real good about my chances. My wife is accepting condolences from all her friends, as it appears I will be around just a tad longer.

        Awesome news Jim. I hope you will be successful as much as the 2015 Tigers are doing. Thanks for sharing and God bless you.

    there have been some very promising results with a few recent drugs (Harvoni & Viekira Pak) developed for Hep C… hope all goes great (or better) for you.

      Norman nailed it, those are the meds I am taking. Thanks to all of you for the best wishes, this is a very big deal for me and my family. My 10 year grandson says that now I can come to his wedding and ask his bride what are you thinking?
