    Nice play or not, fact is that Miggy didn’t even hit the ball very hard.

    Tigers now scoreless for 18 innings straight. Miggy should get an assist for keeping the scoreless streak alive by hitting into a DP.

      He’s 0-5 in bases loaded this season.

    Thorn and Palmer (BAL’s) TV announcers are good, informative…and not homers.

    BFT! …from Cabrera… as Palmer said, Wright is lucky that wasn’t his last AB

    I honestly think Miggy may have been a little embarrassed by his previous at bat as Mario hinted at.

      I wish Upton would get embarrassed!

    that pitch Upton got rung-up on was clearly inside (per K-zone) – and worse than 3 similar pitches Sanchez got ‘called balls’ in the last inning. I do not like erratic strike zones from plate umps

    …when you’ve been losing, everyone piles on

    One thing I have whined about before is that, while I could understand keeping Asmus because of a lack of qualified applicants, I didn’t understand why more coaching changes were not made except the one forced by retirement.

    Let’s review our hitting coach:
    Wally Joyner was hired on July 31. 2007 by the San Diego Padres as their hitting coach. He lasted until September 2008 when he resigned, perhaps in a disagreement with the Padres ownership, but not helped by the poor numbers the Padres had in most batting categories. In 2012 the Phillies hired him as assistant hitting coach to the new hitting coach Steve Henderson. In August 2013, the Phillies fired the manager and the new interim manager Ryne Sandberg made Wally the 1st base coach until we hired him as hitting coach. By the way, Henderson is still the hitting coach at Philly.

    Speaking of whining, if I were official scorer, that would be a 2 base error.

    Moya should have caught that RBI double by Trumbo… his first step was in… big no-no… and the ensuing 3 (should have been unearned) runs

    If in today’s baseball they collect every single bit of data possible and analyze it inside and out why can’t they look at the data on Sanchez’s performance in the 6th inning of every game he pitches?

    Victor may do away with shifting single handed.

      Sorry, didn’t mean to steal your line. Yes it has!

    Is it appropriate to say the wheels have come off?

    The O’s are gonna take a four game sweep.

    Lowe last year had a good year, he gave up a total of 12 ER in 55 innings, for a 1.96 ERA

    this year, he’s given up 12 ER in 12.1 innings… DET seems to be the spot where relief pitchers come to die

    As much as I want Ausmus gone, Mr. Avila needs to be under the microscope as well. He assembled this “team.”

    We have another nice streak going! Be careful the Twinkies are hot, they’ve won 1 in a row.

    This just in from the MLB:
    The Tiger pitching staff has been hired to pitch at the All Star Games, Home Run Derby. They will be joined by Brad Ausmus from his home in Plainview Texas, where he has been since getting fired….
    …..that is all!

    11 losses in the past 12 games… i really don’t see how Ausmus makes the plane trip home back to DET, other than to clean out his locker/office. Sucks for Ausmus, but as he appropriately stated in a recent postgame interview, “its a performance driven profession”.

    of course players are going to say “its on them’… and for the most part, it is – but if DET ownership/mngmt felt/and still feel they have a roster that can win and compete for the playoffs, then someone has to answer why they’re not doing either.

    Ryan makes some good points (suggestions?) in this article

    • StorminNorman$

      “If his job is on the line, our job is on the line,” Ryan said.. “If Brad goes … there ain’t no telling who’s going to come in and who else is going to come in with that guy, because a lot of time they clean house and bring a whole new coaching staff with them. From there … they might get rid of pitchers, they might trade pitchers, they might release pitchers. It’s a domino effect.”

    i’m not watching, but following online – and DET sportswriters indicate Moya misplayed (should have caught) Jone’s RBI “double”… deja vu from a guy “playing out of position”

      Yup!
