    Bring on the prospects and welcome back to 2004. Turn the lights out … the party is over … Tigers might contend again by about 2020 — maybe.

    Great to see that Avila is not in the line-up. Hopefully on his way to somewhere else.

    Unfortunately the worst two baserunners in all of baseball BOTH are Remaining Tigers..Kinsler and Casstalannos rank 1-2…..

      In fact Avila might be #3 but he is never on base…who knows??

    And story of the Brad Ausmus era..7 hits get 2 runs……this never changes…

    In fact Showalter has someone warming up in the pen after his starter only went 2 innings ..Ausmus is calling the league office to see if thats legal!!!!

    That’s pickoff #6 for Kinsler this season, I wonder what the team record is.

      He might have nailed the season record already.

    Boy, is Kinsler stupid on the basepaths!
    Yay, Cespy ——we’re gonna miss you when you go!

    .188 on the road trip and a 7 spot…….if they could have done that 7 once in awhile we wouldn’t be in this mess under.500

    Castellanos plays like he has a Gold Glove out there at 3rd. Literally. Ping!

    Groundball 6 inches from him….he misses it by 7inches…i hope the new guy we got for Soria can play 3rd…

    The Tigers HAVE to think about shutting Victor down….a whopping .200/271 since All Star break a long time ago. He is another Avila ,but batting 4………and doing NOTHING!

    No problem, our closer’s got this. Oh wait, #%^*! We don’t have one!

  14. Jud

    Ok..let the real game….begin!

    Jones…Davis….Wieters….Hardy…..
    …….SAVE!!!!!!!….Hell ya!!

  16. Coleman

    Alex Wilson should get a Win, Hold and Save for that one. He really owned Chris Davis. Impressive.

    Time for Brad to make his mark on baseball strategy and go with the 2-inning closer.

      i agree, and w/what Ausmus has to work with, maybe he’ll finally think outside the box and scrap the ‘1-inning only/defined inning reliever role’ mindset… hell, the outcome from trying something new can’t be much worse than what’s transpired thus far in ’15

        I agree totally; can we get Brad to see that?

    Nothing is ever simple and boring for this team.

    That took so much effort out of the Tigers, I guarantee the next three days will be ugly…….but you know what…today was worth it!!!

    In fact Ausmus +1 bullpen management
    Ausmus -1 batting Avila in the 9th

      But hopefully Avila won’t be available tomorrow….

        AMEN…to THAT!!!!!

    • Coleman

      Well, he had to get Avila up, he might run into one. You know, showcasing him for trade and all. Unfortunately after that strikeout, the ham sandwiches now come without chips.

      Yes. Exactly how I was feeling, especially about the relief and burden lifted part.

    Cespedes traded to Mets for two pitching prospects (Mets’ #7 & #16)… we’ll see who steps up to fill the Price/Cespedes void
