  1. I am not watching today…but this just in…Brad announced the problem is ” were not scoring”…..thanks Brad!

    1. This is ridiculous. 4 HR in 6 Angels batters. Greene is throwing BP. Let’s see if Ausmus gets someone up.

  2. If Ty Cob—- er, Collins could have done his job, that is, making contact, to move runner to third, then probably Martinez is home with Ty–ing run on McCann’s flyout.
    These days, why do the Tigers always seem to have deadwood in the line-up, when they need a simple offensive chore accomplished…..?
    Anyway, Cespy’s shot was nice.

  3. Aw, this is ridiculous. NOW we have to watch baseball games with an airline bag on our knee!!
    Let’s see —-Shane’s on pace to serve up 18 bombs…….

  4. For those of you scoring at home, that was 5 HR given up in 1 2/3 by Greene.

    Barring a miracle comeback, the Tigers will find themselves at 2 under for over 1/4 of a season. At some point in time Ausmus is going to start worrying about his job.

  5. Greene must of been going out with the position players on their LA romp?

  6. Dan and Jim researched it and found this was the first time in MLB that a pitcher has given up 5 HRs in only two innings. Also done in the hardest AL stadium to homer in.

    1. You guys know that I’m generally pretty positive and patient. But something doesn’t feel right this year. The talent is there, but it’s like they are just going through the motions. I wish I knew someone on the inside who could shed some light for us. Is Tom in Lakeland out there?…

      1. Do your remember Leyland’s first season when he chewed the team out in a closed meeting as they were quickly ending their bats in the ninth to get way on a road trip? I wonder how tuned Asmus is to seeing such?

        1. Assmus doesn’t have the balls to chew anyone out. !!!!! Look at him in the dugout, he looks like a 15 year old kid that just got caught with his first Playboy magazine.

      2. After starting 11-2 or whatever it was, I don’t think their play the rest of the way has been that much different than recent years. The Tigers always seem to have the talent but underperform. I blame the managers for not being able to get the best out of their talent.

        Speaking of managers, there’s always a lot of talk about Ausmus being Leyland Part II. Well, at least Leyland had experience to rely on. Ausmus just seems so out of his element.

        So let’s say the Tigers end up being .500 or worse at the AS break. Will DD fire Ausmus and try to right the ship, or will it just be another lost season? I’m guessing it will be the latter, as DD doesn’t seem to like any drama.

        1. I would imagine the latter as well, though I don’t see how Ausmus could possibly survive if we miss the playoffs with the dearth of competition out there.

  7. Kinsler raised his May BA to .077….way way above Perez…..celebration time now on the Sunset strip….they will be crawling out on to the field tomorrow!…..plus Assmus will be giddy with this offensive explosion!!!!

  8. Schumaker is terrible..but last year in Anaheim he had a one hitter into the 7th and shut the Sluggos down just like everyone else does out here!

  9. looks like I picked a good time to be traveling out of the country, with little access to DET getting manhandled at LAA…again.

    lot of “downs” lately, I’m patiently waiting for some “ups” – Price has been the cornerstone lately, let’s hope the bats show up tonight (against a mediocre [MI born and raised] SP – Shoemaker) – he threw 7 innings of SO ball in his last outing, but other than that he’s been fairly underwhelming – 13 HR’s in 51 innings…so that probably means DET hitters will be swinging for the fences (lot’s of popups and fly balls)
