Game 2016.101: Tigers at Red Sox

Ausmus pulled the right strings last night – resulting in a 2 run HR by the #2 hitter, and a 4 out save by F-Rod. Verlander was great again, and we know he can be even better on some nights.

Maybin still out with a back sprain (is he old enough to get those?).

    I can’t believe we spent 8mm/year for this clown on the mound. Lawd have mercy.

    Salty doesn’t have many hits, but he has made them count.

    Do you think DD might be in the market for ball pen help?

    Headed to the Rangers game tomorrow. When I was a kid, one of the best parts of going to the ballpark was seeing the out of town scores get updated throughout the night.

    Also snagged some front row tix on the 1B line for Tigers/Rangers on the 12th!

      They still need to get more time for Romine, less for Aviles.

      Romine in July, by the way: .368 BA, 1.008 OPS.

    By the way..David Ortiz stats are sick compared to every Tiger hitter. Not even close in any category…

      I wonder if he’s reconsidering that retirement thing.
