Hunter, RF
Cabrera, 1B
Martinez, DH
Jackson, CF
Castellanos, 3B
Avila, C
Romine, SS
Davis, LF

Porcello, RHP

Manny seems to be stuck in his second half funk.

Jones maybe could have laid out for that?

 

A replay would have been nice.

Lead-off walks are infuriating.

I find the hitting to be more infuriating than the pitching.

Noris is a madman tonight. He throws 3 perfect innings. He's striking out tigers like they've never seen mlb pitching, and then he charges the visiting dugout to catch that foul ball at the rail.

 

go get it Bud :)

Very frustrating.... offense is just not scoring runs... even in the wins recently.

Every game looks the same and the pitching other than Hunter has been pretty good. The hitting on the other hand has been disappointing.

Not much so far from Manny (obviously very few games), Jones and Davis.

 

Basically looks like the second half last season.

Without these guys (especially Jones and Davis) driving in runs its gonna be tough to beat teams like Detroit.  

 

Would be nice if the bats could pick up Norris right now he's been really solid tonight.

When's the last time we've scored more than 4 runs in 9 innings? Unacceptable but yet the pitching gets scrutinized more.

Clevenger is slick. that wasn't really interference, but the batter stepped out of the batter's box and onto the plate, so he faked the stumble and got the runner called out because of batter's interference. very heads up thinking on his part.

Announcer just said Clevenger leads the team in doubles. Remarkable.

Buck's just saving the bullpen. He knows we can't score.

new rule.

 

if you hit a batter, and the two of you want to dance with each other, the rest of the team is not allowed to come out. anyone who leaves he dugout or BP is automatically ejected from the game.
