Game 2015.67: Tigers at Reds

Well, that was a kick in the n*ts. I mean, do all the runs have to count?

The Tigers run the risk of a very bad 4 game series unless they can pick up a win tonight.

Report from our DTWer on the scene, Coleman, is that there is a lot of hail and rain in Cincy right now, so this thing may not get going for a while.

Bryan Holaday spells McCann after yesterday’s marathon.

    There might be hail and lightnng, but sure ain’t coming from the, Sluggos bats…prolly left over from Frazier!..Tigers are hopingfor a rainout. They are exhausted from…from…fron doing nothing last night!

    Victor activated..Collins back down…my wishful thinking was Castellanos would go down and learn how to play!

      Mine too, jud, but great to have Vic back. Shouldn’t take as good a player as him, too long to get back in the groove….

    I believe the baseball gods gave the Tigers a gift to rest the bullpen by having a rainout. On to NYC.

    when projected “good teams” are floundering, they seem to follow a similar script.

    the portion of this article that jumped out for me:

    “In his second season at the helm, Williams’ handling of the pitching staff has arguably been worse than it was last year. His insistence on relying on roles and the “nth” inning guy helped fuel the poor start…”

    sound familiar?

      Yes! Leyland-Ausmus-esque “stubborn-and-stuck-in-my-box” baseball management.
