Game 2016.55: White Sox at Tigers

Cabrera is in the lineup. Phew.

Baseball-reference game preview here.

Today’s lineup (numbers off of Chris Sale). I’d swap Kinsler and Maybin, and put Upton 7th when he’s back.

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B (6-for-27, 2 HR, 5 walks, 5 K’s)
  2. Cameron Maybin, CF
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B (8-for-33, 2 HR, 9 walks, 12 K’s)
  4. Victor Martinez, DH (16-for-34, 3 doubles, 4 HR, 2 walks, 5 K’s)
  5. J.D. Martinez, RF (6-for-22, 2 doubles, HR, 3 walks, 12 K’s)
  6. Nick Castellanos, 3B (1-for-16, walk, 10 K’s)
  7. James McCann, C (2-for-8, 3 K’s)
  8. Mike Aviles, LF (5-for-31, HR, 2 walks, 3 K’s)
  9. Jose Iglesias, SS (4-for-11, K)

    Pelfry betters Sale. It’s up to the bullpen now.

    THANK YOU Mr Ausmus for not bringing back Pelfrey for the 7th inning… you may be finally catching on to your pitcher’s tendencies & limits

    Pelfrey may finally get that elusive W–and against Cy Sale, no less.

    Also, do not miss the fact that Greene looked great!

    I wonder when the last time was that the Tigers bunted twice in a row. Brad pulling out the small ball. And look at that, the pinch-runner just paid off. A lot of good things today!

    Mark Lowe is only disappointment, he needs to adjust something. Does K-Rod really get a save? Brightest spot today: Pelfrey didn’t come out to pitch the 7th! By the way he did pitch a good game. Sweep expected.

    Tigers have been bunting a little
    Tigers have been stealing a little
    Tigers have been hitting and running a little!!

    Maybe Brad renewed or even purchased a subscription to !”how to manage and win at the Major League level!”
