Game 2017.57: Angels at Tigers

Pretty much everyone contributed to that White Sox sweep…except Victor. Yes, Victor, we’ve noticed. Don’t think I’ve seen your face once this season on the Face of WAR lineup. Of course your buddy All-Star Miggy has dropped off too, replace by Buck Farmer. Hmm.

Today’s Let’s Win Another Lineup:

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  2. Alex Avila, C
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B
  4. Victor Martinez, DH
  5. JD Martinez, RF
  6. Justin Upton, LF
  7. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  8. Alex Presley,  CF
  9. Jose Iglesias, SS

Pitching: Daniel Norris vs Jesse Chavez

Ian is back in the lineup, and the Parsley takes his turn in the centerfield rotation.

    The one constant in the 5-25 Tigers vs Angels is Scoscia.. He totally knows what to throw every Tiger. Doesn’t hardly matter who the pitcher is.. He calls the pitches and they all become
    CY ———.

      Not many fat pitches for us…Outside corner breaking out of the zone…
      Scoscia is one of the best no doubt. ” The smart take from the strong”.
      Pete Carril quote from the great Princeton basketball coach.
      He could take his and beat yours….and take yours and beat his…

    Decent game but as Jud would say same results. Is it ok to hate Angels?

    Angels are very well coached…and are very fundamentally sound…
    They pitched us away all night…
    How many times do we play a semi-clean game doing the things needed
    to win…running the bases…communicating on defense… (How does a
    player tag and go first to second on a fly to right center?) Having
    said that the Angels were lucky to survive the bottom of the 9th…
    We are what we are…. We see it every time we play…
    Miggy is about 0-4 on his great baseball I.Q. running the bases instincts
    that Rod loves to give us all the time…

      Great call on Miggy. While I like aggressive play, it had no place in a situation where you are behind and being caught ends the rally. Perhaps he thought their CF would play it as casually as Parsley played a similar situation in the top of the 7th.
