Game 2016.152: Tigers at Twins

Second of a day/night doubleheader. Did anyone watch? There couldn’t have been more than 1,000 people at the game.

JV’s last three games: 19 IP, 1.21 WHIP, 25 Ks, 2.37 ERA, 0-1 record. He’ll be lucky to get to 15 wins with the run support he’s been getting as of late.

Headed out and lineup isn’t out yet, someone please post.

    I’ve lost track of how many more wins JV should have this year. Let’s spot him 4 or 5 runs tonight.

    I’m not sure what is more surprising, Santana’s wildness or the fact we haven’t been swinging at bad pitches,

    Verlander is one HR away from giving up 30 HR’s this season. Three Tigers have given up 30 HR’s in a season since moving to Comerica Park. Mike Maroth was last in 2005

    Sanchez this year has given up 28 (in 57 less innings than JV) this year – and Sanchez gave up 29 last year.

      Perhaps a more lively ball compounded by JV’s patented high strike fastball?

    JV 79 and Santana 78 pitches thru just 4 IN – bullpen/blowpen alert

    How sweep it is, O’s lose 4 to Red Sox. To make things worse they play Toronto 3 times and the Yankees 3 times, Our fate is truly in our hands now.

    It’ll be important for the Tigers to win as many of these remaining games as possible if they want a seat at the post-season table.

    BAL 9 games remain: 3 @ home vs AZ; 3 @ TOR; 3 @ NYY

    TOR 10 games remain: 4 vs NYY, 3 vs BAL; 3 @ BOS (though BOS will likely be resting starters, after clinching)

    HOU 9 games remain: 3 vs LAA, 3 vs SEA; 3 @ LAA

    NYY 10 games remain: 4 @ TOR; 3 vs BOS; 3 vs BAL

    likely going to be a wild finish

      And he also probably feels well enough to start game seven of the World Series!

          Jud, I’m with you on this one. Been there, done that with no positive results. IF his simulated game goes well, IF we continue to win and IF we have a pen proof lead in one of the remaining games, I might try him for a couple of innings from the pen to see how he looks. Another possible way to go is if we somehow clinch spot early, start him against Atlanta. That’s a lot of BIG IF’s and not likely.

        I think they should save him for game 5 of the wild card round.
