This was likely to be Jones last season regardless, but the injury and resulting ineffectiveness likely sealed the deal. Jones is the Tigers all time saves leader and his 319 career saves places him 14th in the history of the game. I’m […]

Game 156: Royals at Tigers

PREGAME: It will be Zach Grienke and Freddy Garcia. The two pitchers combined to allow 1 run in 12 innings their last times out. I’m going to this one, and my track record isn’t good, so I don’t have high hopes. KCR @ DET, Tuesday, September 23, 2008 Game Preview – Baseball-Reference.com

Game 153: Tigers at Indians

20.09.2008 10 comments

PREGAME: Pregame is kind of a misnomer, since the Tigers just finished the top half of the first with a 1 run lead. Sorry for the tardiness. It’s the first time this season. Fine me, bench me, do what you have to do. Jeremy Sowers and Justin Verlander. Let’s get it on. And guess the […]
