Game 2015.87: Tigers at Blue Jays

Well, bullpen happened.

Not a good outing by JV either. I don’t get pulling JV for Greene in the bottom of the 6th. Though I don’t get a lot of what Ausmus does. Winning last night would have been a gift, with all of the trouble the pitchers were in last night.

The Blue Jays have won six in a row now. The dreaded Pelfrey/TBD/TBD trio on the mound the next three games. Remember, Saturday is an afternoon slot.

    Time for the big, well-paid bats to show up. That’s how you win in Toronto.

      No problem, Aviles is in the lineup! He will cover for the top 4 who were 1 (Ian who else) for 14 last night. Gives Miggy time to play “los bongos” in the dugout.

        You have to tip your cap first. And then take your hat off.

    Tiger offense is like watching an over 70 slow pitch game. Batter batter singles runner barely makes second batter singles and runners barely make second and third…Victor bats 3 times with runners in scoring postiion never gets a ball out of the infield, two pop outs… Aviles bats three times gets everyone out thats in scoring position………and MR I paying $200 million for this…a family of 4 is paying $250+ for this…

      My other question was with Aviles coming up and a right handed pitcher, why not pinch hit Moya?

      BRAD will say “Haap was amazing. Hats off to him for not throwing anything in the strikezone and of course he “tricked”us into swinging by delivering pitches, one right after another. There was nothing we could do”!!..”but I am not worried”!
