Game 2016.56: White Sox at Tigers

Yesterday’s game had a little bit of everything – strong start by Pelfrey, clutch hits, good offensive output, and a joke of an outing by a reliever. But the Tigers managed to win the game and have a chance to sweep the White Sox this afternoon. Quintana has been lights out for the White Sox so far this year, this should be a great match-up.

I estimate that JV’s ERA would be half a run better if we had an average bullpen.

  1. Kevin, correct on JV’s ERA with a better ball pen. I also think he might have at least 2 or possibly 3 more wins.

  2. Did my patriotic duty and did my All Star votes. First time my Al ballot wasn’t all Tigers as I couldn’t pull the trigger on Upton.

  3. Victor..sacks loaded and you throw your bat at a pitch in the other batters box..foul out…WTH!..your one of the few hitters we have….

  4. Verlander has worked his way out of two innings backed by some good D.

  5. +2 Ausmus for pulling JV and bringing in Greene

    i’d bring Greene back for the 9th after a 1-2-3, fifteen pitch 8th (against CWS toughest hitters), w/KRod warming up in case Greene gives up a hit or walk.

  6. Tigers, for the most part , looked like a real baseball team, with a real manager that did baseball things, this weekend!

  7. I, for one have been very impressed w/how JV has ‘turned it around’ (last 6 starts) – he’s shown some good signs of re-establishing himself as the #1 starter DET was expecting when they renegotiated his contract 2 years ago… he’s signed through ’19 season ($28M per), and he has a $22M vesting option for 2020 if he finishes in the top 5 for Cy Young voting for ’19
