    Watching ..
    McCann.. Jones.. Romaine bat continues to be painful.. All three need McCanns wife to pitch extra soft toss to them.

    I wonder what’s worse having 5 guys in your line up hitting under.206…..or the 4th highest guy in your line up is hitting. 211..
    .
    we are really lucky the starting pitching has been pretty darn good!!..

    Let me say, I’d go with Jimenez with no outs.

    Great spot for the new guy, 2nd and 3rd, 1 out and Dozier at the plate. Good luck young man.

    TAM, MIN & CWS are three of the lower-tier AL teams: DET’s record against them thus far: 3-6 …just sayin

    financial perspective: Cabrera, JV + Upton = $78M in ’17; TAM entire team = $70M, MIN entire team = $108M

    Cab + JV + Upton + VMart + Zim + Sanchez = $131M those 5 player ’17 salaries eclipse 15 MLB teams’ entire payroll… teams that include, HOU, CLE, COL & PIT… as the saying goes, “money can’t buy you love (or a winning team)”
