  1. So will the Lions be wearing all blue uniforms for the Thursday night game against the Packers? Seems to be some type of thing the NFL is promoting for the Thursday night schedule lately.
  2. 25 runs in 2 games in Chicago and 26 in 8 games since then. The only way we win is if someone pitches a 1-hit shutout.
  3. Ok that makes sense, knew there had to be something more to it than I saw.
  4. Suppose Iglesias said anything to McCann about dogging it to second? Cost the Tigers a run.
  5. Yeah that's what I figured also. WHIP of 1.65 and OPS against of .782.
  6. 95% of the time any pitcher in the bigs would be able to get 3 outs before giving up 5 runs-- Krol, Ferrell, whoever. It just didn't happen tonight.
  7. So we would have lost the game in the 8th inning instead of the 9th inning?
  8. For the gamblers or anyone else interested the Tigers' past 17 games have gone over the total. An original $10 bet doubled down and bet over during this streak would have netted $690,000 so far.
  9. At least Kinsler can't hit into an inning ending double play for the 3rd consecutive inning.
  10. Kind of a local product, grew up about 90 minutes from Detroit in NW Ohio, hope he does well. I remember him as a high school athlete, was considered more of a prospect as a football player.
  11. So it's a brand new season again if we lose today? This could go on all summer.
  12. 6 game losing streak would be longest since losing 7 in a row in 2011. They followed up that streak by winning 10 of 11.
  13. Semien will make 60 errors this year if they keep playing him at short.
  14. Quote of the night from Nathan after last night's game regarding the number of Tiger fans at the ballpark: "It felt like I was pitching in Detroit," Nathan said. "Except there weren't as many boos."
  15. Hypothetically with a 1 or 2 run lead Janssen starts the 9th for Toronto instead of Delabar so it's hard to project that the 3-run homer AlAl gave up was the difference in the game.
  16. Blue Jays fans feel our pain: Morrow's line today, 2 and 2/3rd innings, 4 runs earned, no hits, 8 walks.
  17. Not even thru the 3rd inning and everyone in the lineup has a hit.
  18. Way back in 1935 the Tigers behind Hank Greenberg and Tommy Bridges won the World Series over the Cubs and a little over 2 months later the Dutch Clark-led Lions knocked off the New York Giants in the NFL Championship game. That was the only previous time that the Tigers and Lions made the playoffs in the same season prior to this year. Heady times indeed.
  19. Just a little over a year ago we lost at home to the Bears. That concluded a stretch where the Lions lost 47 out of 52 games. They are 12-5 since then. I know expectations are a little higher but we've come a long way in a short period of time.
  20. If they win their remaining 18 regular season games their finish would be a half game better than the start of the 1984 World Champs' season, just to give a little perspective of how great the beginning of that season was. That being said you gotta love the recent foot-on-the-throat mentality of this ballclub.
