    Bases loaded no outs, can’t score any. Might bite us later.

    Cabrerra who plays hung over in LA every game doesn’t bother stretching doesn’t have correct foot on the bag.. Lazy play…poor position. Just like he always does in LA.after one more night in LA he will hardly be able to move around..sameoldsameold.

    Well we let Shoemaker off the hook earlier and now he’s building up his strikeout numbers with a lot of help from our hitters. I also expect Zimm to give up a few more. Not good, may opt for bed or Perry Mason tonight.

    My boys wanted to go down there Fri and Sat both. I saw the pitching match up and said no to that in a hurry. It’s not Zim against the Angels….. But I would rather have 4 teeth pulled than to be there watching the Pussycats flail away at Cy Shoemaker… I am not sure if they have ever scored a run against him…… Ever.. He does this same thing to them at Comerica…

    Shoemaker has a losing record as a MLB pitcher for his career if you take away his 5-0 against the Tigers

    Base hit error by Collins.. I mean JD.. Escobar isn’t even half way home as he rounds third… Kinsler gets the relay.. But Kinsler doesn’t bother to throw home…. Tigers in LA play

    ,Zimmerman and Sanchez both make approx $450,000…everytime they pitch in a game… Nice gig!

    That should do it tonight. Jud, you should have fun tomorrow with the boys. JV should be OK and we should be able to put some runs on the board against a so-so pitcher.

    Iggy batted three times. First time bases loaded he throws his bat at a pitch 6 inches out side.. Weak fly ball. Second time he throws his bat at a pitch in the LH batters box grounds to second.. Third time first pitch throws his bat at a pitch in the LH batters box and weakly grounds out. The Tigers in LA.

    I don’t know our seats yet but I will post them. We are usually half way between Tiger dugout and first base, usually about 10-15 rows.
    I will try to give u a blow by blow if there are any… I hope everybody cept Tony, who posted didn’t watch this typical Tiger in LA game… Not even one good out!

      Norman What prevents Sanchez from just being optioned to TOLEDO.
