Game 2016.154: Royals at Tigers

how-to-throw-a-two-seam-fastball-with-daniel-norris-1431440885

This Wild Card thing is looking like a thing. Let’s hope the Van Man can keep this thing rolling.

Great outing by Fulmer last night. He is now 6.1 innings short of qualifying for the ERA title. Could that explain leaving him in longer than we thought last night?

Today’s Lineup:

  1. Kinsler, 2B
  2. Maybin, CF
  3. Cabrera, 1B
  4. V Martinez, DH
  5. JD Martinez, RF
  6. Upton, LF
  7. McCann, C
  8. Romine, 3B
  9. Iglesias, SS

    The cocky Ventura has been a challenge for the Tigers with a 7-0 record against the Bengals. What a great time to turn this around and send the Royals below .500?

      We really need to bet him, small ball is not out of the question. We have to be patient and not count on just home runs.

    Great hustle by Ian to get to third and nice work to plate 2… is it just me or is the Royals world series champ patch past its expiration date? Our new mantra: the Wild Card thing is a thing! Coleman is the greatest!

    Hopefully we can add a few more. Norris has another inning to go based on pitch count. If we’re lucky we get into their pen this inning.

    As the grandkids would say, Ventura has a bad owie….

    Hey guys, I subscribe to the RSS feed for this site and the last update came through with a bunch of spam/Viagra links at the bottom. If you view the source on this page, you can see the links embedded in the HTML.

    Basically, the site has been hacked and needs to get fixed ASAP.

      KW I looked at the source of this page, and don’t see anything. Was it today’s update you are talking about, or yesterday’s? Maybe it is just something being sent along with the RSS feed, and not on the actual page?

            Yep, in today’s post too. Highly recommend reading this article: https://codex.wordpress.org/FAQ_My_site_was_hacked

            I’ve never dealt with a WordPress hack, but I’m pretty familiar with WordPress and can probably help you guys out if you need someone to log in and clean things up. Just let me know.

    Time to pile on some runs to keep us from hand wringing the rest of the game.

    Not a pile but 1 is better than none.

      Yes, good to see. Now no drama from F-Rod.

        Umm…

  13. Coleman

    Get him out of there.

      Too late.

        Have you noticed how many times Brad is a day late and a dollar short on pulling a pitcher? I don’t blame him per se, but we never seem to have anyone ready to go in 1 or 2 run late inning situations. Lots of drama from K-Rod today.

    A closer who can’t close, a reoccurring scenario for the Tigers.

  15. Jud

    Gee Brad that was only 5 runs…now take him out?????..why bother now!

  16. Jud

    September 24, 2016 at 4:56 pm

    19 runners and only 4 runs…has as much do do with this blow pen loss as anything….story of the year…Brad will say…”thats baseball”!..

      Absolutely, Victor and JD both struck out with one out and the bases loaded earlier.

      • Jud

        September 24, 2016 at 5:04 pm

        Kinsler and Mabin got on 7 times..3 time together…Miggy and Victor…0 RBI today!!!

    Yes, big letdown, but let’s not forget F-Rod now has 44 saves out 48. That’s not a shabby season’s work but, as thy say, timing is everything. I would think that we would have someone up and getting ready the minute the lead off man got on base in such an important game. But to be fair, that is hindsight.

    Impeccable timing indeed Tony. But great point. They’re all big now, but I think tomorrow is the biggest game of year with CLE coming in next. Gotta bounce back tomorrow. Still tied in loss column with BAL at worst by end of day today.

    can’t let anymore like this get away this year

    KRod has been solid lately – and they’ll really need him to be sharp this last week of the season

    …DET fans have not known a ‘truly dependable bullpen’ since… well… a very long time ago… maybe since Señor Smoke & Willie Hernandez?

      Very sad, my grand kids spent the night, and my oldest (13yo RHP) turned to me and said I am going to ask Coach if I can have #16 next year…….
