    Default I have had enough, the hitting coach should be fired along with Leyland




    The Tigers need to dump the hitting coach, 2 runs off of these slugs it plain sucks. I also hold Leyland accountable for not having a team meeting. When Dotel walked the 1st batter, Leyland should have jumped from the dug out and pulled Dotel. No he just stands there like a dime store indian. Why did they pull Fiester after 7 innings he could have thrown the 8th easy. Our bull pen is garbage, McClendon should be replaced like right now. Granderson could not hit water in his last year with the Tigers then he goes to the Yankees and there hitting instruction figured out what Curtis was doing and look at the results last year.
    No I will be off the boards I just can't take this anymore. Good luck to the Tigers and believe me they will need it the way they are playing. Maybe I am over reacting but I am not going to watch them anymore until they turn it around maybe they will and maybe they will not.Raburn will never hit why is he still on this team. Bring up Worth and release Raburn, at least worth will make contact. Delmon thank God this is his last year.

    Sigh.

    Also, Danny Worth is already on the team. I see he's made quite the impact.

    It's games like this that filter the dregs from the pristine. When fans show there true colors, and it hasn't been pretty. Hey, we all are pissed about last nights game, but think before you start another useless ranting thread. Go to the game thread and do all your venting there. It's makes this board look amateurish when after every bad loss posters with 12 posts start threads like this. Also, starting threads like this is a good way to get banned. Post the same thing in the Game Thread, and you run a lower risk of getting banned.

    The Yankees instructor figured out that Curtis needed a smaller park to hit homeruns in. He didn't exactly light the league on fire in any other categories.

    My question is, why does Phil Coke only get 8 pitches last night? Bring him out for another inning. He's the only solid bullpen guy we've got and barely gets used. He's not a situational lefty.

    The same hitting coach who has Austin Jackson hitting for power right now?

    I'm no McClendon apologist but I hardly think he has anything to do with the fact that the Tigers can only score 2 or 3 runs in a game right now.

    Yes that was very disappointing. But it was just one game. This team has got to stop leaving men on base. At least twice last night the bases were loaded with no run scored.

    Could we have just one general OMG The Tigers Suck In Every Way Imaginable thread and list all of their woes there?

    I don't see that he's gone. I hope I'm wrong though. The ban-hammer was invented just for people like this guy.

    Distribution of wealth is not in any way democratic. It is, in fact, tyrannical, in that a very select few own almost all of it, while most have little to no access. To have a country that prioritizes wealth over individual rights is the antithesis of democracy.
