Game 2016.121: Red Sox at Tigers

Boyd pitched a gem last time out; then again, Sanchez did the same last night.

Things are starting to turn a little ugly as the fans, understandably frustrated with Upton, are starting to unleash the boos. Worst Tiger acquisition since Aubrey Huff?

Alex Presley called up from Toledo; hey, why not? Maybe Presley will leave the building. Bobby Parnell gets the DFA to make room for Presley on the 40-man roster.

Today’s Can’t Buy a Run Lineup:

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  2. Erick Aybar, SS
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  4. V Martinez, DH
  5. JD Martinez, RF
  6. Casey McGehee, 3B
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Andrew Romine, CF
  9. Alex Presley, LF

    Brad must be having a long talk with J-Up as he is out of the lineup for another day.

      I was thinking the same…wouldn’t surprise me, but then again I could see them putting up 6 or 7 on him in the first couple innings too

      …depending on which DET shows up today

      the last time Buchholz pitched over 4 innings in a game was on 7/2, a game where he gave up 7 hits and 6 runs

      thus far, today DET hitters have been very therapeutic for him

    Upton should take the next 40 games off..he is a drag on the team..he isn’t even that good on D anymore besides his .150 BA.

    Amazing what happens when you don’t swing at bad pitches.

    …DET did make a unexpected comeback, and a W is a W…but a bases loaded BB to the #9 hitter (Lettuce pray)?? …sounds almost tiger-like

    …and in the ongoing MLB statistical injustices, JWilson get’s the “win”

      What wasn’t Tiger like was that Lettuce didn’t swing at the 4 balls. I also thought Presley could have walked if he had some patience.

    1.Boyd solid AGAIN!
    2. Lettuce big at bat..most Tigers would have K’ed on the ball four pitch!
    3. Upton finally helps the team. PR..good position for him everyday!
    4.KRod..survives. He still doesn’t look right!
