    I am sure Miggy will see alot of pitches with .150 Victor slugging behind him…Victor has 16 RBI second half that means he is making about $400,000 per RBI …..nice gig!!!!!!!

    Hope he pulls Simon after 5, maybe 6 max.

      I guess 4 was the magic number tonight.

    Do the Tigers also lead the MBL in ROThird strike out on a ball not near the strikezone!….or just RISPL2Out fail!

    Mario says, “You wonder if Brad’s thinking about a squeeze here.” And why not? You got speed (Rajai) at the plate, speed-enough (Iggy) at 3rd. But no, —–Rajai = swing-away K.
    Mario’s Q should have been, “You wonder if Brad’s thinking at all.”
    As Tigers leave yet another run on the field, that they could have easily had, if smart……

    Of the 2 “liabilities” in the ‘pen, I’d rather see AL AL than “new, improved” Gorzy —–(I think).

    I don’t need a rehab assignments just struck out on 4 pitches all out of the strikezone

    Even with our bullpen, why leave Simon in to throw another inning of batting practice?

    Brad’s got to challenge that one, bunting a run in from third is definitely illegal, right?

    Houston bunted and got a run!…Assmus is calling the league office to see if thats legal….Lamont in the meantime is just shaking his head!!!

    (We all posted that at same time….)
    Is it me, or Tom G’s delivery/arm angle/whatever actually DOES look improved?

    Hey Raj…you’d have a better chance of hitting those pitches that get to the plate all the way in the air!. 3 k’on bouncing 3rd..least your consistent!

    August 14, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    And were wasting Wilson today for what reason ,Brad!

    Good thing we traded away the talent for those prospects.

    My 2-12 rest of August predict is right on so far…just 1-7 to go! Wake Brad up, time to go home tonight!

    Hey Capt Smarty…Houston sac bunted…squeezed in a run…hit a sac fly…..stole 3 bases…..had a successful hit and run…got a 2 two out hit……got an add on run off the steal….lets see the Tigers????…????…had a 1-0 lead…and K’d 5 times in pitches that bounced. BRAD is actually wondering why his team is 1 game out of last place and Houston is in first place

      Right, Jud. This is exactly what makes me cuss and scream at my computer while watching these games.
      And then check out the blank expressions on our Skipper’s face every time camera pans to the dugout.
      It’s pathetic. I hope things change, at least after the end of this season.
