Game 2015.129: Tigers at Blue Jays

Today Buck Farmer takes his turn at trying to keep the Blue Jays in the yard. This lineup is truly potent, as opposed to the “potent” Tigers offense that Rod Allen is always talking about. The Tigers have leadoff hitters who can’t get on base and a cleanup hitter who can’t hit in runs, but hey, other than that they are fine.

When David Price made his last start fort the Tigers, the Tigers were 48-52, and the Blue Jays were 50-51. That’s a 1 1/2 game difference. The Tigers decided to sell, the Blue Jays decided to buy, and now Toronto is 12 games better than Detroit.

Today Brad swaps Gose and Davis in the lineup, and decides to prank Buck Farmer by giving JD Martinez the day off.

Today’s Lineup:

  1. Anthony Gose, CF
  2. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  3. Miguel Cabrera, DH
  4. Victor Martinez, 1B
  5. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  6. Tyler Collins, RF
  7. James McCann, C
  8. Jose Iglesias, SS
  9. Rajai Davis, LF

    My 2-12 is going to be off by one game…but my 1-5 is right on so far sorry to say…I have no hope what-so-ever for 81-81 …..sad….sad…..sad stae of affairs!

    The Blue Jays, Astros, Cubs, Mets are good for baseball. I hope one of them wins it all!

    That was smart to send Casty there, at end of nice 12-pitch K by Ty Cobbins.

    If Asmus doesn’t fine Rajai for not running hard on the sun ball, Al Avila should. I guarantee you Prince Fielder would have at least rounded first on that ball. Rajai should have been at second.

    It’s forgivable to lose when you don’t have the talent but it is unforgiveable for not giving 100% all the time. By the way, it is not just Rajai it’s a lot of guys on this team that have their heads up their collective behinds. It shows in many ways.

    Accoarding to Gameday, which could be wrong, I guess..after runners went 1-3 no outs..Huctchinson only threw 1 pitch the rest of that inning out of 12 in the strikezone…3 outs

    Lets see Collins can’t hit, he can’t throw, and he can’t field……fits right in!

      Does that mean he can run? Perfect 2016 replacement for Cespedes.

    Farmer may not be another JV but think how what they have done to him can affect him in the future, not just this game. Hope McCann punches out all three of the outfielders!

    Ausmus was given the keys to a Ferrari but after two years it looks he will be leaving town in a Hyundai Accent.

      I disagree. It was not a Ferrari two years ago but certainly a nice Mercury or even small Lincoln. He is leaving town in a Yugo! Hopefully on Monday!

      Wilson has been one of our better relievers this year, why would you burn him in a 9-1 massacre? Probably expects Simon to pitch another 1 hit complete game tomorrow.

    Tigers have the highest BA in all of baseball at .272
    The Cubs, Astros abd Mets have the three lowest in all of baseball at .239-240-.241…i guess Batting Averages are not a very good way to see how good your team is doing, now is it?

    Everyone take a deep breath. This season has been over since the trade deadline. The games are just for fun now and definitely not worth getting worked up over. Looking forward to an Ausmus-free 2016…
