Game 2013.145: Tigers at White Sox

10.09.2013 66 comments

Detroit Tigers: 82-62, 1st Place (4.5 ahead of Cleveland).  It’s never a good sign when one of the top highlights of the game is an ejection. But in the first inning Miguel Cabrera was tossed for the second time this season in the middle of an at bat, and like last time was just talking […]

Detroit Tigers: 82-61, 1st Place (5.5 ahead of Cleveland).  The Tigers still have a fairly comfortable 5.5 game lead over Cleveland, so things are hardly going badly. Although they may have the race in hand, it is hardly encouraging to watch them hobble down the home stretch (literally and figuratively), and hardly a good harbinger […]

82-60, first place, 5.5 games ahead of the Indians (violation of agreement, currently under review). We need a replacement for the “good game” cliche. Let’s go with well-played loss. Losing 4-3 gives the Royals the series edge at 8-7 and drops Detroit’s record to 15-21 in one-run games. Duffy didn’t throw enough strikes for the […]

82-59, first place. Magic number 16, should you hanker for one this early. Detroit and Cleveland seem to have reached an accord about staying 6.5 games away from each other. If the Tigers go undefeated the rest of the way, this is a win-win. Was I saying something about a close game being a good […]

81-59, first place, 6.5 games ahead of the Indians. Too early to start talking about magic numbers. When GAMES REMAINING/GAMES AHEAD = <2, magic number time begins. After a couple days off, one of which counted in the standings, the Tigers are back at it with three against the Royals in KC. (By the way, the […]

81-58, 1st place, when do magic numbers become a thing? I’m up against the clock today, friends, so just a quick intro to get the discussion going. You don’t see too many 0-4 nights for Cabrera, makes me wonder if he was really okay. He’s out again today, and now I really wish that he […]

81-57, 1st place, by a lot. No wonder the Boston faithful gave Jose Iglesias a standing O yesterday afternoon. Besides his double, he was the cornerstone in 3 double plays yesterday, the last of which demonstrated his ridiculous athleticism and baseball IQ. First of all, he pretty easily got to a ball well to the […]

80-57, 1st place, 7.5 games up. Happy Labor Day Everybody! Hope your weekend has been as enjoyable as mine. We’re BBQing with friends today; they are slated to come over after the Tigers game ends. So there’s about a 50% chance that I’ll be in a really crappy mood when they get here. Well, the […]

Detroit Tigers: 80-56, 1st Place (8.5 ahead of Cleveland).  Well, this is it, that last Tigers-Indians game of 2013. The Tigers will finish the season series either 16-3 or 15-4 against Cleveland, depending on what Justin Verlander and the B Team can do this afternoon.  As the Indians leave the field toward that visitor’s clubhouse […]

Detroit Tigers: 79-56, 1st Place (7.5 ahead of Cleveland).  Really, it is the most remarkable thing: Cleveland just cannot beat Detroit. After cruising to a rain-shortened victory last night, Detroit improved to 14-3 against their division rivals. There is nothing like that at the top of any other division in baseball; I don’t know when […]

Detroit Tigers: 78-56, 1st Place (6.5 ahead of Cleveland).  The last time I did a post, the Tigers were 5.5 games ahead of Cleveland. After going 4-4 in the meantime, they have somehow increased their lead to 6.5 games. The Tigers of course, as we know–and if you don’t know, well then, good for your […]

77-56, 1st place, 5.5 games ahead of the Indians. So this is what it’s like to be an Astros fan. Oh, right. The above. Strike that remark. But losing 14-4 will correct your Pythagorean record in a hurry. The pitching has gotten a bit soggy lately, eh? The A’s are also swinging the bats very, […]
