    Shields will be the 3 or 4 pitcher with a 5-6 ERA in the past three days that gets to lower it by about a run cause he gets the Tigers. I wonder if pitchers have to pay their managers extra to not skip the Pussycat offense!…..

    Worst baserunning team in all of baseball. Shields throws a pickoff into centerfield JD goes back to second then barely makes third. Then with the infield back, Salty knocks the first baseman over , Abreu turns backwards , falls down, gets up…..JD is standing on 3rd yet….only the Tigers…trying to make the playoffs…..

    No matter how hard Shields tries to give us a run, we won’t take it. 1 run in 4 innings and low pitch count, is this a ringer? Meanwhile Boyd may not go more than 2 innings bases on his 80+ pitch count. Is this a 1st team to use their pen loses game?

    I don’t know how you all feel about this game but for me it’s a downer. I have watched Shields pitch 6 complete innings giving up only 2 runs and we have probably lost Maybin for at least another week. Oops, Shields may even win this now that Saladino went yard.

    Our crack broadcasting team just put up a slide saying Shields pitched 5 innings, Rod just corrected it to 6.

    13-13 in August as the Tigers march towards the playoffs..Kansas City now tied and tomorrow they will go 1 up..but Brad and the Tigers aren’t worried..

    .I’ve seen people laying in a funeral home with more fire than the Tigers have….

    Salty may not have a bunch of hits but he sure has a lot of important ones. Good thing, The Twinkies shut the Indians out for 9 innings but Cleveland won 1-0 in the 10th.

    McGahee sent down, Jacoby Jones (rookie) gets the start at 3B tonight… Boyd also sent down…hmmmm. JJones may not yet be ready, but I predict some day he’s going to be a MLB everyday player…

    Maybin obviously re-injured his thumb – I didn’t watch the game, did he slide headfirst on the SB that caused his injury? if so, why – and/or why wasn’t he wearing one of those ‘thumb guards’ I’ve seen a few MLB player wear while running the bases?

    i’ll go on record as agreeing w/technology calling balls & strikes – leaving an ump behind the plate to tend to other home plate ump duties.

    I’ve seen far too many games effected by an ump’s wandering or selective strike zone…

    as Samuelson suggests, I doubt it will happen anytime soon – but if I had a vote I would impose it beginning in ’17 – if the applicable and acceptable technology is available (which I believe it is).
