    I wouldn’t pull Hardy here for Alburquerque. Let’s hope Al Al gets a lucky ground ball or something.

    WPitches in the tying run, then BB next, Al Al is in usual form; so is Ausmus for this rh/lh pitching change.

    Correct move now, Brad, to pull Al. This is a no-brainer….
    But Krol?? Hoo–boy, let’s hope HE gets lucky.

    VMart cranks a go-ahead 2-run shot! Way to go, Victor, 2 for 2 tonite; slump over!

    Glad B A brought in Rondon here, instead of Gorzy…

    This is smart, bunting Avila here . Now all he has to do is get one down!

  13. Jud

    And thats why they don’t bunt. ..no fundemental bunt taught by any level in the Tiger organization….Last in the MBL in Sacs!

    Now I see why B A doesn’t call for sac bunt much!
    You’re right tho, Brad = your coaches shouldn’t waste their valuable time teaching this team the art of the bunt!
    Jud = you there?

    Jud – I see our posts crossed again, with exact same thought too!

    First of all, McCann should have batted for Avila (lefty-Righty, better hitter). Also, James has 8 successful bunts this year 4 sacs, 4 hits. No matter, if I were a KC fan, I would be worried.

    How about Romine all year!…he has done a ton….like the Tigers EVER get a replay call….ever…looks like Perez got a toe…I thought Kinsler was a tad late off third…maybe not!

    Hilarious opening, Coleman.

    I was surprised at how excited the guys were to almost win, even if it was brief. Good for them.

    K C announcers thought Kinsler was safe.

    This time he’s safe for sure!

    Thank you, Ian Kinsler! This time celebration is real. Ian touched home plate; no challenge has been made.

    Tony, this time, our posts crossed with same thoughts. Glad I can go to bed now, after only 11.
    How ’bout Kinsler? MLB’s multi-hit games leader, & this time it’s a walk-off.
    Also, interesting stat: Last 6 of 10 Tigers home wins against Royals have been walk-offs!

    Kaline fan,

    Be honest, if your were a KC fan wouldn’t you be concerned?

      A little —-yes. Thinking probably something like, “Who are these Tigers? Sitting in last place, but still finding ways to consistently beat our butts at the very end of games!
      (However, we still goin’ to post-season, & they ain’t.)”

    And tonite = 2 walk-offs in the same game! —–uh, almost, I guess.

    A HBP…..in a PH role. Should count as a hit for the Tigers….just sayin!

    I see which Big Pasta showed up today.

    I see Ian is not in the lineup. Punishment for last night’s poor play?

    No, we are probably resting him for our playoff run.

    I do hope Simon comes back next year. He can be frustrating at times but he has 13 wins in a dismal season. He might have 16 if our team blowpen were better.

      i certainly hope DET can do better than Simon, but whoever signs him, he shouldn’t be expensive.

      If you look at Simon’s game log, with the exception of maybe one of his starts (when DET lost), he’s not been good (given up 4 or more in 6 innings or less)… which means generally in the games he’s started that DET won, he’s been good or very good, and in the games DET has lost when he’s started, he’s been bad or very bad.

      if (big “if”) DET knew they’d get “good Simon” 75% of the time, he’d be worth bringing back…

    How ’bout those Lions!

      soon the Lions will absorb all of the DET Tiger fan’s angst… if it already has not happened.

        Fire Jim Caldwell! (Brad Ausmus told me to write that).

      well paid professional coaches whose team continues to underperform, set themselves up for all the grief that comes with ‘the job’… as we’ve heard a thousand times, its a results oriented business

      …and the same goes for the highly paid professional athletes – there’s two edges to that sword – high salaries = high expectations…and if they don’t like that dynamic, there are plenty of ‘real jobs’ out there that are less ‘demanding’
